AlphaFund Interviews OneNotary: Revolutionizing the Notary Industry with Innovative Technology

As remote work and digital transactions become increasingly prevalent, the demand for secure, efficient, and accessible notary services has reached new heights. OneNotary is leading the charge in transforming the notary industry by harnessing cutting-edge technology to offer remote online notarization (RON) services. AlphaFund recently had the privilege of meeting with the team at OneNotary to delve into their innovative platform, their dedication to modernizing the notary process, and their vision for the industry’s future.

Part 1: Interview with OneNotary

AlphaFund: Can you tell us about OneNotary and what inspired you to start this company?

OneNotary: At OneNotary, our mission is to revolutionize the notary industry by providing secure, convenient, and accessible remote online notarization services that meet the evolving needs of businesses and individuals in the digital age. What inspired us was the realization that traditional notary services, which require in-person meetings and physical document signings, are often inconvenient, time-consuming, and outdated in today’s fast-paced, technology-driven world.

We saw an opportunity to leverage the power of digital technology, such as video conferencing, electronic signatures, and identity verification, to create a new kind of notary platform that enables people to get documents notarized from anywhere, at any time, without sacrificing security or compliance. By eliminating the need for travel and scheduling, we aim to make notarization more efficient, affordable, and accessible for everyone.

AlphaFund: What sets OneNotary apart from other online notary services in the market?

OneNotary: There are a few key things that differentiate OneNotary from other players in the online notary space. First and foremost, we are committed to providing the highest level of security and compliance in everything we do. Our platform is built on state-of-the-art encryption, identity verification, and fraud detection technologies to ensure the integrity and authenticity of every notarization. We also adhere to strict industry standards and regulations, such as the Remote Online Notarization (RON) laws and the National Notary Association’s Code of Professional Responsibility.

Another key differentiator is our focus on user experience and customer support. We have designed our platform to be intuitive, user-friendly, and accessible to people of all technical skill levels. Our notaries are highly trained and experienced professionals who provide personalized guidance and support throughout the notarization process. We also offer a range of tools and resources, such as document templates, FAQs, and educational content, to help our customers prepare for and complete their notarizations with ease.

Finally, we are committed to innovation and continuous improvement. We are constantly exploring new technologies and partnerships that can enhance the functionality, security, and value of our platform. For example, we are currently piloting a blockchain-based solution for recording and verifying notarizations, which could provide an even higher level of transparency and immutability.

AlphaFund: How do you see the online notary industry evolving in the coming years, and how is OneNotary positioned to lead this change?

OneNotary: We believe that the online notary industry is poised for significant growth and transformation in the coming years, as more states adopt RON laws and more businesses and individuals embrace digital solutions for their legal and financial transactions. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated this trend, as social distancing and remote work have made traditional in-person notarizations less feasible and desirable.

In this context, we believe that OneNotary is well-positioned to lead the industry forward and set a new standard for online notarization in the 21st century. We are constantly innovating and expanding our platform to meet the evolving needs and expectations of our customers. For example, we are currently developing a mobile app that will enable even more flexible and convenient notarizations, as well as an API that will allow other businesses to integrate our notary services into their own platforms.

We are also building partnerships and collaborations with key stakeholders across the legal, financial, and technology ecosystems, from law firms and title companies to banks and software providers, to drive adoption and innovation in the online notary space. Ultimately, our vision is to create a world where notarization is as easy, secure, and accessible as any other digital service, and where every person and business can benefit from the efficiency and convenience of remote online notarization.

Part 2: FAQ

1. What types of documents can be notarized through OneNotary’s platform?

OneNotary’s platform supports a wide range of documents that require notarization, including but not limited to: affidavits, powers of attorney, deeds, trusts, wills, contracts, and legal agreements. As long as the document can be signed electronically and the signer can be identified and communicated with through video conferencing, it can typically be notarized remotely through our platform.

2. How does OneNotary verify the identity of signers and prevent fraud?

OneNotary uses a multi-layered approach to identity verification and fraud prevention. This includes requiring signers to provide a valid government-issued photo ID, which is then cross-checked against public records and databases to confirm its authenticity. We also use knowledge-based authentication (KBA) to ask signers questions that only they should know the answers to, based on their credit history and public records. Additionally, we use AI-powered facial recognition and liveness detection to ensure that the person signing the document is the same person shown on the ID and is physically present in real-time.

3. Is remote online notarization legal and recognized in all states?

Currently, not all states have passed laws recognizing remote online notarization as a valid form of notarization. However, the number of states adopting RON laws is growing rapidly, with over 30 states having enacted RON legislation as of 2021. In states where RON is not yet recognized, documents notarized through OneNotary’s platform may still be valid and enforceable, depending on the specific laws and circumstances involved. OneNotary is actively working with policymakers and industry groups to promote the adoption of RON laws across all states.

4. How much does it cost to use OneNotary’s platform, and how does pricing compare to traditional notary services?

OneNotary offers competitive and transparent pricing for its remote online notarization services. Our fees vary depending on the type and complexity of the document being notarized, but typically range from $25 to $100 per notarization. This is generally comparable to or lower than the cost of traditional in-person notary services, especially when considering the time and travel expenses saved by using our platform. We also offer volume discounts and subscription plans for businesses and frequent users.
