eOriginal Joins Vacation Ownership Association Following Market’s Growing Need for Digital Transaction Management

American Resort Development Association includes nearly 1,000 members across industry

BALTIMORE, MD – eOriginal, Inc., experts in digital transaction management services, today announced that it has joined the American Resort Development Association (ARDA), the Washington D.C.-based trade association representing the vacation ownership and resort development industries.

eOriginal elected to join ARDA following an increased demand for digital transaction management solutions from companies large and small that are involved in the timeshare industry.

“Joining ARDA is a logical step for eOriginal,” CEO and President Stephen Bisbee said. “There are obvious benefits for the industry to digitize it processes, and we recently earned the business of a national top five vacation resort company by demonstrating that eOriginal has the most secure and compliant solution available.”

The Washington D.C.-based ARDA is a professional association representing the vacation ownership and resort development industries (timeshares). Established in 1969, ARDA today has almost 1,000 members ranging from privately held firms to publicly traded companies and international corporations with expertise in shared ownership interests in leisure real estate.

Through the integration of electronic signatures, such as eOriginal’s SmartSign®, vacation ownership companies have improved the customer experience with a sleek tool that provides superior transaction efficiency and significantly reduces errors and the reliance on paper that is costly to purchase and store.

By meeting its high standards for eCertainty™,  eOriginal provides the highest levels of compliance and security in the industry through a patented DTM solution that develops and maintains an authoritative copy and a tamper-sealed, comprehensive audit trail managed through a highly secure electronic vault.
