As you’ve read in previous posts, we solved the ‘last mile’ friction around the physical in person requirement – allowing you to close all your deals in real-time, on demand, from anywhere in the world but, as the e-Notary pioneer and with tens of thousands of ceremonies under our belt, we also understand that now is the best time to for you to complete your 100% digital transformation and take your business to the next level. Eco-friendly, convenient, compliant and critical data never before available… it just makes so much sense to hit the ground running!

The prevalence of digital technology, the trend to reduce paperwork, the goal to save time and money and the need to increase security have converged in the growth in e-notarizations. And the momentum is growing. National organizations are increasingly endorsing e-notarizations and remote notarizations, and their uses are spreading.
All states are authorized to accept some form of e-notarization in conformance with the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) which was approved in 1999 by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Law (NCCUSL) as an overlay statute to help reconcile conflicting state laws. The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce (ESIGN) Act was passed in 2000 by the federal government and grants legal recognition to electronic signatures and records if all parties to a contract choose to use electronic documents and to sign them electronically, and it also supports e-notarization.
Montana and Virginia take it a step further and recognize what many consider the norm for the future: remote notarization via webcam technology. And Virginia notaries can remotely notarize documents for signing parties located anywhere in the world.
