Corporation Service Co. (CSC), a provider of electronic document recording solutions for government recording offices and document submitters, has created a free, new ‘Beginner's Guide to Document eRecording.’
The guide walks document submitters and recorders through the history of electronic document recording, how the process works and how to get started.
The Beginner's Guide is just one facet of the company's focus on education in the document recording and related industries, says Mark Rosser, vice president for CSC.
‘As a service provider with more than 100 years of experience in corporate transactions, we take our responsibility to inform and educate very seriously,’ Rosser says. ‘We hope this guide answers some of the questions that document submitters and recorders still have about the electronic recording process. We tried to make our guide as engaging as possible.’
Along with the release of the Beginner's Guide, CSC has challenged document submitters who are not yet eRecording or who are using another service provider to answer the question, ‘What will you do with your extra paper once you switch to CSC eRecording?’
Contest participants should take a photograph of something they have created out of paper and submit it. CSC will select the best entry in April and feature the photograph and submission on its website. The winner will also receive an Apple iPad.
‘We think this contest is a fun way to highlight the benefits of paperless document recording,’ Rosser says. ‘We're hoping for some unique submissions. And the winner will receive another paper reducer – a tablet.’
For inspiration, contest participants can view CSC's tutorial on how to make a paper crane, a classic origami figure.
In related news, CSC recently announced that it has added optical character recognition (OCR) to its eRecording application. The technology allows text in scanned documents to be "read" and then copied into other documents.
Incorporating OCR into the solution allows users to quickly select any amount of full-text data and copy it with ease.
CSC says it will be rolling out additional enhancements to its eRecording application in 2014.
