MERS is an organization designed to streamline mortgage processes. Created by the real estate finance industry, MERS eliminates the need to prepare and record assignments when trading residential and commercial mortgage loans. All of our mortgage-related systems support loan tracking through the industry standard Mortgage Identification Number (MIN).

The MERS eDelivery system provides a secure method for distributing eMortgage packages from one MERS eRegistry Member to another, using the existing MERS eRegistry infrastructure and transaction security requirements. We support all eRegistry and eDelivery transactions as part of our MBMS evault solution.
