Even though we are a small county, there’s no reason why we can’t be at the forefront of technology.
JEWELL COUNTY, Kan. (PRWEB) November 13, 2014
The Jewell County register of deeds’ office has launched electronic recording (e-recording) of land documents through Simplifile, the nation’s largest e-recording service, providing customers with a faster, more efficient document recording method online.
“Even though we are a small county, there’s no reason why we can’t be at the forefront of technology,” said Jewell County Register of Deeds Anna Morgan-Standley. “E-recording will expedite our turnaround time and allow us to be more efficient. For instance, it gives us the ability to put the clerk’s transfer stamp on the document, eliminating the time to physically take the document over to the county clerk’s office and waiting for them to return it back to us.”
Morgan-Standley also said e-recording will be more convenient for customers and any rejected documents can be sent back immediately through Simplifile, corrected, and returned electronically for recording within a few minutes.
The cost-savings on mail and paper expenses is another benefit of e-recording for both the county and its customers, which include title companies, banks, attorneys, and other organizations that submit documents to the register of deeds’ office.
“E-recording streamlines the document recording process for counties of all sizes. Plus, it’s easy for customers to use and implement in their individual office workflows,” said Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile.
Increased document security and fewer check-writing expenses are also some of the benefits of e-recording, as recording fees and payments can be processed securely through Simplifile via electronic funds transfer.
“Simplifile is wonderful to work with. They worked extremely hard to make their program work with our office recording labels, especially our scanning bar code labels,” Morgan-Standley added.
Jewell County joins 32 other Kansas e-recording counties that have also implemented Simplifile’s e-recording service as well as more than 1,165 e-recording counties across the nation.
High-speed Internet access, a PC, and a scanner are the minimum requirements for customers to begin e-recording with Simplifile.
