Recording documents get technology speed boost with ERecording

(Port Orchard, WA)  Documents electronically recorded in Kitsap County are now viewable online immediately, in most cases, thanks to changes to the county's online document recording program at The Kitsap County Auditor’s Office, one of the first to introduce eRecording technology in July of 2009, is expanding on the industry standard for delivering public documents for recording in electronic format by working with some of the most notable companies within the industry. "Government and private sector synergy makes eRecording technology available to the people of Kitsap County," said Dolores Gilmore, Kitsap County Auditor. "The Internet can be used to prepare documents for scanning and uploading while drastically reducing the time it takes to record documents with the county".

The Kitsap County Auditor is currently working with the following companies to deliver a variety of choices for eRecording: Corporation Service Company, eRecording Partners Network, Indecomm Global Services, and Simplifile (currently the only company that can eRecord documents that require a treasurer excise tax stamp). This efficient way of placing documents on public record provides the people of Kitsap County an essential service in a manner that ensures quality, accountability, and accessibility.

Kitsap County was formed in 1857 and was the hub of industrial activity that built the Pacific Northwest. Today, the Kitsap County Auditor's four divisions — Elections, Finance, Recording & Licensing — continue to be a hub for citizens with services like voting and marriage licensing. The Auditor is dedicated to more than 260,000 citizens and ensures the quality of our services.
