With realizing the cost benefits of its customers, Stewart also understands that long-term prosperity must be an element in any strategic plan. Conversely, Stewart looks beyond its operations and will continue to grow as long as it is constantly aware of what others (competition) are likely to do (Pearce and Robinson, 2005). Principal Technology With keen focus on technology (e-solutions, e-commerce, and e-closings), Stewart Title developed (1) SureClose® online transaction management system, (2) the eClosingRoom™ electronic closing platform (developed by Stewart Title and Silanis Technology), (3) the AIM® for Windows® title production system, and (4) the TitleSearch® title plant, document imaging and search analysis systems (Stewart, 2006).
