Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced a new offering in partnership with the Sonoma County Clerk and Recorder's Office in California, which is using Tyler's Eagle Recorder ™ software to electronically print staff signatures on marriage licenses. Sonoma County is leading the charge in making this offering possible because of Eagle Recorder's robust and intuitive capabilities. Over the past several months, the Sonoma County Clerk and Recorder's Office has led a pilot program in collaboration with the California Department of Public Health to print marriage licenses with digitized signatures of the issuing and registering clerks, thereby automating a once manual process. Sonoma is the first county in California to begin offering this service for county staff. "Having the ability to digitize signatures on marriage licenses has removed the occasional issue where someone forgets to sign, which may cause a problem down the road. Our staff loves it, and now the state does, too," said Deva Proto, chief deputy county clerk-recorder for Sonoma County. "With this new capability, we're able to create a more efficient process in our office and minimize errors." Sonoma County first implemented Tyler's Eagle Recorder in 2014, which initially allowed marriage application forms to be filled out electronically. The solution also tracked real estate records and vital records such as birth and death records, and it processed a number of clerk documents. Ms. Proto and the Sonoma County Clerk and Recorder's Office approached Tyler with the idea of implementing electronic signature capture on marriage licenses. "If a clerk signature gets missed or is left off of a license, it is an expensive, time-intensive process to correct. Eagle Recorder enables us to link an employee's signature to their account profile so they are the only one who can use it. The digital signatures had to be under the control of the issuing employee, unmodifiable and password protected, as well as tracked by the system before the state would go let us go forward with the pilot program. Eagle Recorder makes all of this possible," said Ms. Proto.
