More on Registry Renovations

by @ 9:13 am. Filed under Registry Ops

Yesterday was a time of intensive activity here at the registry. We constructed an all-new Customer Service office using modular furniture that we imported from the former location of the Worcester Registry of Deeds. We also slightly altered the location of equipment at the Recording Counter and substituted five round conference tables for the two large rectangular tables in the “real estate closing” section of the Record Hall. The effect of all this movement is to create a more spacious, orderly work environment consistent with the new paperless process we will fully implement in the near future. The only remaining piece of this project is moving our mail processing room into the former Customer Service office area. We expect that to occur sometime next week. Also next week our computer company (ACS) will be onsite to install three new combination recording terminals/scanners. Two of these will go to the recording counter and the third will go to the mailroom. Our planned cut over date is Monday, August 20. From that day forward, we will scan all documents immediately upon recording and hand the originals back to the person who presented them for recording. Documents that are left behind by customers will be disposed of after scanning. During this entire process, we also expect electronic recording to become widely available to local customers, so we expect more and more of our documents to be recorded electronically.
