Register William P. O’Donnell today announced a redesign of the Norfolk County Registry of Deeds website, www.norfolkdeeds.org, making it easier for users of portable devices, including those using smartphones and tablets, to navigate the website.
“In today’s world,” stated Register O’Donnell, “more and more individuals, particularly young people, are browsing the Internet with a mobile device. People are constantly looking for information and seeking more accessible ways to obtain it. They don’t want to be chained to their home or work desk to get things done.
“Having a more accessible and friendly web presence for mobile phone users is a critical component to ensuring our customers experience is a good one. One of the major benefits of the redesigned website is the resizing of its content to fit on a phone or tablet’s screen.”
Register O’Donnell listed some of the practical ways that mobile phone and tablet users will benefit from the newly redesigned website. “It will be easier to obtain information on acquiring a copy of your property deed; appreciate the advantages in filing a Homestead application; seek foreclosure information; study county real estate data; learn how to avoid paying an outrageous price for a copy of your deed; understand the importance of ensuring mortgage discharges are filed in a timely manner and the advantages to sign-up for the Registry’s free Consumer Notification Program, alerting you to any recording changes made to your property.”
Concluding his remarks, Register O’Donnell stated, “Staying up-to-date on the latest technologies is truly critical when it comes to responding to the changing needs of the consumers. I am proud of our redesigned website and the way it ensures a more mobile friendly experience. I want to thank my staff and our website design vendor Getfused for their outstanding work on the project.”
