Technology and society have a major impact on the practice of law and notaries, paving the way for advanced solutions and new opportunities. In recent years Remote Online Notarization became a rapidly evolving practice in the United States. As of 2022, documents notarized online are being recognized and legally accepted by local, state and federal agencies everywhere across the nation, and the number of RON certified notaries and clients seeking their services is increasing by the day.
In the light of this new development in the notarial world Ronary, in partnership with VerifID Services Corp., developed its own government-accredited Remote Online Notarization education training course for the commissioned Florida notaries. And what makes it truly unique is its first-of-a-kind video format with a live instructor!
On 9 March 2022, was announced the launch of a special product – Ronary Florida Notary Course
What is RON
RON stands for Remote Online Notarization. It allows authorized notaries public to notarize electronic documents for clients located anywhere in the United States using two-way audio-video communication technology. RON is the online equivalent of an in-person, paper-based notarization where every part of the process is done remotely through a live video session over the Internet. The entire session, including identity verification and the notarization of documents, is recorded in real time and saved for future reference. Documents are signed and stamped digitally and then stored online. The notary’s journal of remote online notarizations is also 100% digital.
All notaries who wish to become RON must select an education provider accepted by the state and complete a training course in order to get approved as an online notary in Florida. RON authorization runs concurrently with your traditional Notary Public commission and will expire on the same day.
Why is RON so high in demand
Beginning in 2011 and to this date, 40 states have already passed remote online notarization bills allowing commissioned notaries to perform their duties and offer real-time services remotely across all of the United States, with 7 more states putting temporary RON authorizations in place. Florida RON regulations were officially signed into power in July 2019.
So what makes RON currently so high in demand? First of all, Florida is a state with the largest notary population in the country, nearing 500,000 notaries public. That constitutes a very competitive job market, therefore offering an exclusive Remote Online Notarization service helps established businesses and individual entrepreneurs to develop professionally. The preferences of the clients must also be accounted for. Studies have shown that 5 in 9 Americans choose the simple, secure, and legal online notarization alternative over the traditional notary practice, which means RON certified notaries could double their client reach within the state and increase it exponentially as they start providing their services nationwide.
And lastly, Remote Online Notarizations have unsurprisingly been increasing in popularity due to the global COVID-19 pandemic and the need of social distancing. This period of time has proved that RON is a critical tool for both independent notaries and businesses industries, and in the future will become a commonplace necessity. With RON notaries will be better equipped to perform customized signing experiences on a daily basis in a quick and efficient manner.
