Montgomery County, PA Expands Electronic Recording Options with eSecureFile™
HOUSTON (August 3, 2011) – PropertyInfo Corporation (PIC), a leading provider of end-to-end records management solutions, has partnered with Montgomery County, PA to offer additional electronic recording services via eSecureFile™ to the county’s submitters.
”Expanding our electronic recording options with eSecureFile benefits our county and respective submitters. There is a seamless integration with our county’s records management system, CountyFusion™, as well.” says Nancy J. Becker, Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds. “Montgomery County’s electronic recordings have increased from 10 percent in 2007 to 50 percent in 2011. Adding eSecureFile gives the county the opportunity to reach more submitters and increase electronic recordings. Electronic recordings save the Recorder of Deeds office and the County time and money, increases efficiencies and eliminates paper. More importantly it streamlines the recording process and gives our customers flexibility of how they submit documents and in many cases, decreases their expense,” explains Becker.
With eSecureFile, submitters can electronically submit land records in minutes – virtually eliminating travel time and expenses associated with visiting the local courthouse. There is no software to install and no set-up costs, which is a benefit for submitters and offers a no-risk solution. Once the submitter has signed up with eSecureFile they have the ability to eRecord into all eSecureFile counties.
“PropertyInfo is excited to add Montgomery County as another county to its network of eSecureFile customers to electronically record land records.” says Kyle Chaney, vice president of PropertyInfo’s government services division. “We are focused on expanding our eRecording geographic coverage for all of our clients, and we value our eSecureFile customers and the counties we partner with to help make this happen. It is important to provide a seamless, cost-effective solution that benefits both parties,” adds Chaney.
