TitleVest awarded patent for ACRISasap™

Ground-breaking technology automates the creation of NYC ACRIS E-Tax forms, cutting processing time by 90%

New York, NY – July 13, 2010 – TitleVest Agency, Inc. (TitleVest), one of the nation’s leading providers of title insurance and related real estate services, announced today that the company has been issued a United States Patent for its revolutionary ACRISasap™ technology.

ACRISasap™, available exclusively at www.titlevest.com, is a web-based tool that cuts the time to create NYC ACRIS E-Tax forms by 90% or more. ACRIS E-Tax forms are required in connection with all conveyances of real property and cooperative apartments in New York City.

“The Patent award confirms what we have known for years: ACRISasap™ is a technical marvel”, said Bill Baron, TitleVest’s Founder and President and the “inventor” of the patented program.

“It’s really a no-brainer for real estate attorneys. ACRISasap™ creates the required E-Tax forms in a fraction of the time and effort required by the City’s ACRIS website,” said Baron.

The key benefits of ACRISasap™ as compared to the New York City Department of Finance’s (DOF) “ACRIS” website are:


* based on a recent survey of over 500 ACRISasap™ users.
** for cooperative apartment transactions

Since launching ACRISasap™ in 2005, TitleVest has developed a loyal following of New York real estate attorneys and support staff, ranging from solo practitioners to the largest and most prominent New York law firms.
