State IT Innovation of the Year
The West Virginia Secretary of State’s Office rolled out a major update to the West Virginia One Stop Business Portal that makes it more efficient for entrepreneurs to register a business. The update includes many enhancements, most notably a new cart feature, file upload functionality for supporting documents and new options for requesting expedited service from the Secretary of State’s Office. Expedited service selections include one hour, two hours or 24 hours. Previously, expedited service could only be requested by calling or visiting the filing office.
