IAR has re-negotiated its contract with zipLogix for statewide forms. In addition to a major price reduction for the association, we’ve added two services for members. Here’s a short description of those services. Also, forms will move completely online in 2012 with the phasing out of the zipForm® 6 Standard Desktop version. More details are coming soon to your inbox.

Digital Ink®
All members will now have access to zipLogix's digital signature product for unlimited transactions as part of their dues.  This is a great value.  Many digital signature products on the market cost as much in annual fees as IAR's entire annual dues. Read More >

With the exception of an up-front set-up fee, all MLSs/BLCs® in the state will have free access to this service that will import MLS/BLC® data directly into members' transactions.
