When you think of cutting-edge technology, the age-old, bureaucratic necessity of document notarization probably doesn’t immediately spring to mind. However, NotaryCam is helping to bring document notarization into the digital age by offering customers the opportunity to have documents signed and notarized securely and in real-time – anywhere in the world. We had the chance to sit down with NotaryCam founder Rick Triola and learn about the origin of NotaryCam and his plans for the future of the company.
EQ: Can you give us a brief overview of NotaryCam and a little bit on the history of the service?
Triola: NotaryCam is the first global online notarization platform. My prior concentration focused on delivering a complete paperless and electronic real estate/mortgage transaction, from which we came to understand the notary as the integral trusted party in every single transaction (on average approximately eight notarizations per transaction to close.) Fast forward to July 1, 2012, when Virginia passed legislation for a remote video conference notarization, it allowed us to leapfrog over the lack of national notary standards. A certified e-notary in Virginia is now capable, through our secure platform, to notarize documents regardless of where the signer is, anytime and from anywhere.
