- Increases service to the constituents
- ROD implementation without cost
- ORO can be utilized by any recording office
Fidlar’s Official Records Online (ORO) service allows your constituents to easily obtain certified copies of vital and land records from your office. Counties that currently offer the service are providing a major convenience to their public who appreciate the value of being able to purchase their certified records online. With OfficialRecordsOnline.com, requestors are able to purchase certified copies of birth, death, marriage, land records and divorce decrees conveniently via credit card transaction using a computer, phone or tablet.
Providing the means to easily request and obtain certified records online will prove to be a major service to the public and increase the value they find in the Register of Deeds’ Office. A major benefit to the requestor is the shortened amount of time it takes to receive their certified copies versus having to make the request via phone, or traditional mail. Individuals are no longer required to mail a physical request form, as the process of ID verification is done via the application process on the ORO website.
Regardless of who your land records provider may be, any county can easily offer the Official Records Online service without start-up cost and requires no annual fees. Choosing to offer ORO in your office does not mean that other services or methods to obtain these records need to be removed. Offering ORO only expands the services delivered to the public.
“I’m pleased to offer the convenience of ordering certified copies via Fidlar’s Official Records Online Service for Ozaukee County. By offering ORO, we expand the service we can offer to everyone whether they live in Ozaukee County or elsewhere. Official Records Online provides the means to make requesting copies in a way that is simple and secure for the office and the requestor.” – Ron Voigt, Ozaukee Register of Deeds
