LEHI, Utah, Feb. 22, 2023 – SimpleNexus, an nCino (NASDAQ: NCNO) company and developer of the leading U.S. homeownership platform for loan officers, borrowers, real estate agents and settlement agents, today announced that Hudson, Massachusetts-based Avidia Bank has implemented Nexus Closing™ to offer its customers the convenience of “from anywhere” home financing tools.

Leading with its Honest to Goodness® brand promise, Avidia Bank seeks to provide customers with efficient financial solutions and exceptional customer service.

Nexus Closing is a comprehensive closing solution with the flexibility to support traditional, hybrid and fully remote eClosings. Its collaborative tools, automatic status updates and mobile eSign capabilities provide borrowers with the resources and guidance to confidently navigate the mortgage closing process.
