Mason County in Washington recorded its first electronic document through Simplifile’s e-recording service and has made e-recording available to all online document submitters.

“We are excited to begin e-recording in Mason County and look forward to the efficiency and time-saving benefits that come with e-recording for us and our submitters,” said Jill Tullar, Mason County’s auditor office manager.

Simplifile said Mason County will be able to significantly reduce the amount of time it takes for documents to be recorded.

Even those with limited experience with technology will find it easy to utilize.”
