Due to highly sensitive document nature (i.e. contracts, land registries), the real-estate industry is starting to recognise the benefits of blockchain document exchange. In February 2020, a group of real-estate agencies from SE Europe (i.e Aeon Group d.o.o. and Arenda real estate d.o.o.) under the franchise of Century21 joined our blockchain eDelivery protocol (i.e. FOURdx) testing program.
“As we did not have any experience with blockchain so far, it was different to understand the concept of wallets, but the team from 4THTECH, explained the process clearly. In first phase we started to transfer sensitive documents between real-estate sellers and the agency. So far there were no problems with the system, the files upload with no problems, no matter the size and are delivered to destination in minutes.”

“Document exchange solution provided by the 4thpillar technologies has three major benefits. The first benefit goes towards physical documentation optimisation, as we in Naton have hundreds of documentation folders pilling up, we urgently need digital transformation solution. Second, the GDPR compliance can simplify a lot of processes, and the third benefit goes to saving paper and with that saving the planet. “

We finally will be able to do our job almost without paper. “
