The Hawaii Attorney General, Notary Public Office has launched a new online Notary system at notary.ehawaii.gov. The new system is designed to help the public quickly and easily submit and pay for their applications to become a Notary or renew their Notary Commission. It also provides the Notary staff with a platform to administer new applications and renewals from their mobile devices or desktops.
“This new system will reduce the amount of manual data entry and manual payments processed,” said Hawaii Deputy Attorney General Shari Wong. “We’ll also reduce cost by eventually doing away with all the paper-based reminders and letters. This is part of the Attorney General’s continued efforts to transform how we can serve our customers more efficiently and effectively.”
The mobile version of the system optimizes touch screen technology and smart phone interfaces by providing larger text, buttons designed for touch response and layouts for smaller screens. This provides speed and efficiency on a platform that enables the Notary Public office to quickly implement additional improvements and realize future cost savings.
The online Notary application was developed at no cost to the state and is maintained via the eHawaii.gov program, a largely self-funded public-private partnership between the State of Hawai‘i and Hawai‘i Information Consortium LLC (HIC), a Hawai‘i corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of eGovernment firm NIC Inc. (NASDAQ: EGOV).
