Encrypted Online Deposit (EOD) makes depositing of escrow materials both simple and secure, and we are proud to give our clients the most current service offering.

EOD is simple because encryption is done automatically. You just zip, drag and send. No more physical media and no more couriers.

EOD is secure because naked source code never leaves your possession. Encryption is assured throughout transmission and storage.

EOD via the SoftEscrow Client Portal is designed for and tested on the latest stable versions of the Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Safari web browsers.
