AP Equipment Financing has switched to use a remote online notarization (RON) for power of attorney and bills of sale documents during their customers’ transaction journey. This change to a RON will speed up the process of transactions for AP customers significantly.

AP has a strong emphasis on technology, constantly searching and utilizing the best technology applicable to make the customer transaction journey quicker, easier and more efficient while still retaining security and personable human interaction. With a RON platform, the notarization of documents becomes quick, easy and efficient for the customer so they can get into their titled equipment faster. RON reduces the amount of time it takes to notarize documents from days to minutes.

“Remote Online Notaries add value to our customers by providing them with a convenient, easy-to-use and streamlined process for getting their documents notarized without the hassle of having to leave their business or home,” said Austin Law, CLFP, AP’s Vice President of Front-End Operations. “RON aligns with AP’s objective ‘The Power of Personal’ by utilizing the most effective technologies the market has to offer to expedite procedures and truly focus on our customers, all while lowering AP's carbon footprint.”

Using a Remote Online Notarization aligns with AP’s parent company’s sustainability mission: “Tokyo Century Group seeks to preserve the environment in all areas of its business activities by endeavoring to create an environmentally sound, sustainable economy and society.” RON significantly reduces AP’s carbon footprint by eliminating the environmentally unnecessary tasks required to send paper notaries which includes paper use, driving and gas costs for trips to the notary, and document shipping costs and energy.

During initial testing AP’s customers stated: “It worked fabulously! We didn't have any issues. This is a life saver not having to run down to the bank to get it notarized, such a pain. This was beautiful, loved it!” — Steve F., AP customer.

“Easy, straight forward, didn't take long, simple, actually pretty cool, I liked it.” — Eliu P., AP customer.
