INDIANAPOLIS (PRWEB) December 06, 2013
Four new Indiana counties, Harrison, Perry, Porter, and Wabash, have implemented e-recording with Simplifile, the nation’s largest e-recording vendor, enabling faster, more cost-effective land document recording for thousands of customers.
“The main reason we decided to start e-recording was to reduce the paper shuffle,” said Perry County Recorder Mary Lee Smith. “We'd heard from other counties how much of a success e-recording has been for them, and we felt it would definitely benefit us.”
With e-recording available, customers such as title companies, banks, attorneys, lien filers, and others who submit documents to these Indiana counties for recording will be able to do so via the Internet using Simplifile’s online service.
“We love receiving the e-recordings,” Smith said. “They are right there at our fingertips and it takes a lot less time to process the entire recording.”
When documents are submitted by mail or courier service, it can take several days or even weeks for the county to receive, record, and return them back to the submitter. With Simplifile’s service, this process is reduced to hours or minutes.
“The quickest way to the courthouse is to not have to go there at all,” said Porter County Recorder Jon C. Miller. “E-Recording results in greater efficiency and better use of existing resources.”
According to Miller, implementation of e-recording is also provided at no additional cost to the county.
Harrison County Recorder Barbara Best shared that her office decided to start e-recording to “keep the standards of today’s technology.”
“I love e-recording,” Best said. “No opening of folded documents, no staples, no refolding and returning documents - it’s incredible how much time it saves.”
In addition to the time that e-recording saves both the county and document submitters, it also helps save money on paper, fuel, and other expenses that come with traditional, paper document recording.
“The ultimate benefit of e-recording is providing enhanced service to the public,” said Miller. “A more efficient recording process reduces the turnaround time on processing documents, which in turn expedites the return of important personal documents back to the public.”
The recorders hope that more and more customers will continue to see the benefits e-recording offers and take advantage of the newly available service.
