Island County, Wash., has started electronically recording documents through Simplifile, the nation’s largest electronic recording (e-recording) service provider, saving time and money for the county and its customers.

Island County Auditor Sheilah Crider is pleased to announce the implementation of e-recording of documents.
“From our perspective, electronic recording of documents is about efficiency and improved customer service. It saves time for our customers, is an efficient use of staff time and reduces costs of paper and postage – saving taxpayer dollars,” Crider said. “E-recording enables us to provide a safe form of transmittal of documents to be recorded and significantly reduces the time required for recording versus those that are mailed to us.
