Stewart Strengthens Data and Analytics, Platform-as-a-Service Capabilities by Announcing its Intent to Acquire Informative Research

“Stewart continues to invest in the creation of an end-to-end, customer-focused real estate services and technology platform,” said Fred Eppinger, Stewart Chief Executive Officer. “By bringing Informative Research into the Stewart family of companies, we further reflect that commitment and advance our data and analytics capabilities. I’m excited about the possibilities our service platform offers as we integrate IR with Cloudvirga, Signature Closers, and NotaryCam as well as our existing appraisal and title capabilities to provide our customers with superior performance and ease of use across the transaction lifecycle.”
“Joining the Stewart family accelerates our ability to develop and bring to market additional products and services that will better serve the lending and real estate industry. We’re excited to be able to help drive the creation of a holistic loan and real estate analytical service and closing process at Stewart,” said Sean Buckner, Informative Research President, and Chief Executive Officer.
“Through our technology suite, IR allows customers to improve sales and profits while reducing risk, which makes it a perfect fit with Stewart. We look forward to a bright future as we help our customers drive performance and succeed.”
