Loveland, Colorado, April 9, 2020ProSign Online, powered by Epic River, the simple, secure, and compliant eSignature solution developed for financial institutions, is proud to announce financial institutions now have the ability to embed SBA applications on their websites as well as facilitate SBA-compliant loan closings.

Epic River partners with global financial technology leader, Finastra, to provide opportunities for financial institutions to serve their communities. These features will allow borrowers to complete and sign any form safely without having to leave home and all without increasing the load on overloaded bank staff. Notably, borrowers will be able to apply for the Paycheck Protection Program available through the CARES Act.

Identification and authorization is enhanced to provide financial institutions the confidence they need to move quickly and effectively to deliver these much needed funds to their community. Borrower identity will be verified using a multitude of knowledge-based questions and advanced technology features for complete alignment with SBA regulations.

“The ability to access and sign documents from anywhere at any time is essential in this ever-changing landscape,” said Jeff Grobaski, CEO at Epic River. “We are proud to do our part in enabling small businesses to access the capital they need to help our communities and economy recover from this completely unexpected situation.”
