Fully Managed SaaS Remote Online Notarization 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 Remote Online Notarization 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).
