Worcester Visit

by @ 9:37 am. Filed under Registry Ops

Yesterday I took a field trip to the Worcester South Registry of Deeds. Worcester is also experimenting with the POR (point of recording) scanning concept. They are currently using the system very successful on a limited basis. During this trial period they have separated the POR scanning from “regular” recording. Worcester has set up a designated recording line for only people that want to record and immediately receive the document back. They also limit recordings to three documents per person. After a document is recorded it is immediately scanned, but before the recording clerk releases the document to its custodian a ceritified copy is made and retained by the registry. They told me they were going to eliminated copying the document shortly. The Worcester method differs somewhat from our experiments. The biggest difference is one person handles the document from the POR to its release. They feel this “artisan” way of document handling minimizes mistakes. I intend on trying this method here at Middlesex North also. Worcester has done and outstanding job and has been a leader in develoing the POR scanning program. I always enjoy visiting other registries. I would like to thank Worcester Register of Deeds Anthony Vigliotti and Linda Curran for their kind hospitality and help.
