Glen Rock, New Jersey– Action Title Research, a technology-based search solution for the title insurance market, today announced a $30 million investment from Strattam Capital. With more than 750 customers, Action Title Research will leverage this investment to further automate and digitize the U.S. real estate landscape, driving geographic expansion and fueling product growth.
Action Title Research’s proprietary workflow software platform enables faster and more reliable title research results, addressing a multi-billion-dollar market for search services nationwide within the $20+ billion U.S. title insurance industry. The purpose-built solution processes title orders leveraging SmartSearchä functionality to solve the challenging “last mile” data complexity at the county level.

“With more than 1.1 million searches complete, our customers expect comprehensive, quick, and accurate search at scale,” said Chris Blum, CEO of Action Title Research. “The investment by Strattam will allow us to accelerate our expansion to other states while providing advanced solutions to title professionals.”
