Fully Managed SaaS RON Solution for Businesses and Individuals

Pro Notary is a fully managed solution that allows the signer to appear before the notary over a live audio-video feed when executing digital documents. Remote Online Notarization is a new technology-driven process that does not require any software installation nor additional browser plugins on behalf of the user.

The entire RON process can be broken down into four simple steps:

Pro Notary

Step 1 is identity verification that requires all signing parties to pass knowledge-based authentication prior to a system performed credential ID test. A user's ID can consist of a driver's license, a government issued photo ID or passport.

Step 2 is the actual audio-video conference where the notary and signer meet virtually to talk to each other over a webcam in real-time. During this step the notary will observe all necessary digital signatures by the signer and will apply appropriate notarial certificates and seals to the digital document(s).

Step 3 is tamper proofing the executed digital documents with a date/time-stamp digital certificate. This certificate will identify whether any of the documents are altered in the future.

Step 4 is the audit trail and notarial records that are required to be kept to prove who actually digitally signed the document(s).
