AMO-Notarius Digital Signature Service Pilot Launch

If you regularly read our blog, you are probably aware that AMO is partnering with Solutions Notarius Inc. to offer members a digital signature service.  The service includes state-of-the-art digital signature solutions and a legally reliable e-signing platform. As with other LAS programs and services in the past, we are testing proof of concept of the solutions through a pilot program.

The pilot will provide participating municipalities with the technology to sign documents using secure and encrypted digital and electronic signatures. One of our main objectives of this pilot is to get municipalities acquainted with the technology and solutions to see if there is a cost avoidance compared to the status quo (i.e. a hand written signature).  The pilot will also determine if the service supports comprehensive electronic document management for municipal governments.

So far, participating municipalities in the pilot include:
  • The United Counties of Prescott & Russell
  • The County of Simcoe
  • The Municipality of Wawa
  • The Municipality of Kincardine
During the six-month pilot, municipalities will test Notarius solutions at no cost. At the conclusion, the information and data gathered from participants will determine how to promote the service more broadly. Examples of use cases will be presented at a concurrent session sponsored by Notarius at this year’s AMO Conference in Ottawa. A final report on the results will follow at the conclusion of the trial period. We will make that report available to members, so please stay tuned to this blog and other AMO information channels for updates.

They say if you “talk the talk,” it helps if you “walk the walk.” That is why at AMO we are also testing Notarius solutions in our day-to-day administration. We are currently using the Consigno Cloud platform to electronically sign municipal funding agreements for the $26 million Main Street Revitalization Initiative. Your Clerk has probably recently used the software to sign your funding agreement!

Back in February, AMO and Marc St-Jacques, Vice President, Sales and Marketing at Notarius, hosted a webinar highlighting the solutions included in our Digital Signature Service. Marc took participants through a live demo of Notarius’ solutions in real time. It is about an hour and would make for a great lunch and learn. If you are interested in receiving more information about Notarius’ solutions, or if you would like to schedule your own demo, please contact Marc at 1-888-588-0011 x1280 or by email at marc.stjacques@notarius.com.   

For more information about the pilot program, please connect with me, Nicholas Ruder, at (416) 971-9856 x411 or by email at nruder@amo.on.ca. Nada Belhadfa, Director Digital Transformation at Notarius is also available to talk about the technical details about the pilot. She can be reached at 1-888-588-0011 x1276 or by email at nada.belhadfa@notarius.com.
