Boulder, CO – November 1, 2013 – Adeptive Software, the makers of ResWare, are pleased to announce their strategic partnership with Cloudstar, known for business, compliance, and advanced technology solutions for the real estate, land title, insurance and financial industries

“Moving our ResWare to the “cloud” was the best way to for my team to address ALTA Best Practices,” states Pat Carney, Partner at 360 American Title Service.  “This especially goes to Best Practice #3, which deals with Non Public Private Information and how  settlement agents protect their client’s information. We feel this gives us a leg up on our competition and creates an opportunity for additional work from lenders who are looking for early adapters and CFPB compliant shops.”

“We are very excited about this partnership,” states Bryan Buus, President of Adeptive. “Many of our customers prefer to concentrate on their areas of expertise and know that their systems are compliant and managed by experts in their field.  They do not want to concern themselves with IT infrastructure issues.”
