Cartavi Introduces the First Cloud-Based Document Management Solution Designed Specifically for Real Estate Professionals

by Richard on July 27, 2011

The residential real estate industry today was formally introduced to Cartavi, a one-of-a kind cloud-based software solution for document management at Real Estate Connect, the industry’s premier, bi-annual technology gathering.

Cartavi is a cloud based solution designed specifically for real estate professionals that allows users and those related to the transaction to securely manage and share documents with everyone involved in the transaction – from any computer, tablet or smart phone.

According to Glenn Shimkus, co-founder and chief executive officer of Cartavi, more than 20 people from 10 companies participate in every real estate transaction.  With Cartavi, the real estate agent invites all parties involved in the transaction into a secure, cloud-based “Transaction Room” through which all documents involved can be securely exchanged.

“You have all the documents you need at your fingertips and you can securely share them with everyone involved in that transaction,” said Shimkus. “Our mobile app is the most complete solution available – not only can you view your documents, you can rename, move, e-mail and fax them from your smart phone or tablet.”

He added, “Cartavi is simple to navigate, and gives real estate agents the flexibility and mobility they need to be more productive. Less time managing the mountains of paperwork involved in every transaction means more time for sales.”

Cartavi has been in private beta testing for the past nine months with hundreds of real estate professionals actively using the solution.  From Realtors and attorneys to lenders and home inspectors Cartavi has changed the way they do business.

Cartavi is based in Naperville, Illinois and was co-founded in 2009 by Glenn Shimkus and Paul Koziarz.  Prior to launching the company and writing the first line of code, they spent two years researching the residential real estate market and its specific document management needs.  For more information on Cartavi or to try it for free, go to
