Yes, all of our constructions clients have access to e-bonding. E-bonding, also commonly referred to as digital bonds, is being used more and more frequently by purchasers of construction including many municipalities, school boards and hospitals. E-bonding simply means that the construction purchaser will accept a digitally verified pdf copy of the bond rather than requiring a hard paper copy. For now, e-bonding is usually only accepted at the tender stage but we are beginning to see e-bonds be accepted for contract bonds (performance and labour and material payment bonds) as well and we expect this trend to continue. For e-bonding we use the Xenex Signature Masters platform or the Mobile Bonds platform. Both are trusted e-bonding providers.
