We've been asked many times for a recommendation for a remote online notary platform. We're excited to announce that we are now able to make a recommendation that we believe will help Ohio's online notaries.

Ohio Notary Services, LLC (ONS) today announced its selection of SIGNiX as its exclusive remote online notarization (RON) partner. ONS is the Ohio Secretary of State’s sole authorized provider for RON education and testing to over 130,000 notaries in the State of Ohio.

SIGNiX’s eNotaryDoX software solution enables ONS-certified notaries to conduct notarizations while adhering to social-distancing guidelines. As an added benefit, the elimination of travel time means notaries can schedule more notarizations than they could otherwise perform in-person.

“SIGNiX provides notaries with everything needed to facilitate remote online notarizations in a safe, secure, and cost-effective manner, and we are thrilled to be partnering with them,” said C. Allen Nichols, Ohio Notary Services’ Executive Director. “Unlike most other RON service providers, SIGNiX doesn’t compete with notaries for business; rather, SIGNiX gives notaries direct access to comprehensive solutions needed to conduct remote transactions and expand their business opportunities.”

“As the most experienced notary education provider in Ohio, ONS ensures notaries have the training and support they need to successfully perform remote notarizations,” stated Jay Jumper, SIGNiX CEO. “In turn, SIGNiX’s RON software equips notaries with the tools needed to facilitate notarizations from anywhere, at any time, providing notaries with the flexibility to conduct their business however they see fit.”

As more than 85% of states have authorized RON, SIGNiX provides thousands of notaries nationwide with access to the necessary technology to validate identity credentials, protect documents, and utilize audio-video recording to capture video of all participants, providing undeniable proof of any attempted fraud.
