I've been a busy girl lately and unfortunately, blogging has taken a back seat to some other incredible and innovative projects I'm working to complete. But I had to get on here today to tell you about the coolest new product I've purchased in a long time. I saw it for the first time at the 2023 NNA Conference a few weeks ago and it BLEW. MY. MIND. In that moment I knew I had to have it, and share it with other notaries in my circle of influence.
What am I talking about?
The Notary eJournal from Jurat, Inc! Holy moly this thing is cool! I was filming a training video for Notary Business Builder's new Notary Trust Delivery Agent Certification (more on that in another blog post coming soon), and when it came time to log the transaction, Laura Biewer pulled out her phone instead of her notary journal. At first, I was confused, but then I saw her talk through the process of using the Notary eJournal during our mock estate plan/living trust signing, and I instantly kicked myself for not looking into this amazing product before.
It was quick. It was easy. It was efficient. It was super cool, and made Laura look like a top tier, tech-savvy notary! And the time it saved was incredible!
Here's the nitty gritty: It can scan state ID's and auto fill the entry. It has pretty much every document you've ever heard of pre-installed so you can easily search and click to notate which documents you notarized (plus, it's easy to add other documents as needed). It auto-generates the signing location address when you type in the first few letters of the street address. It allows your customer to sign with their finger on your phone screen (and takes digital finger prints, as well). It produces monthly reports for accounting purposes. It's cloud based, and will work for up to 12 hours if you're not on wifi. But best of all, it's SECURE and provides a detailed, minute-by-minute record of each transaction if it's ever needed.
So, whether you specialize in trust and estate plans, care facilities or hospitals, international adoptions, jail signings, loan signings or any other specialty under the notary umbrella the Notary eJournal will save you time, help you keep more accurate records and store them securely. It's available in 46 states (yes, California, Texas and Florida are included), and I HIGHLY recommend this journal!
Oh! Did I mention it's FREE to try out the first 2 weeks (with no credit card required for the free trial) then it's only $90 a year? At that price, it's a no-brainer!! Full disclosure: I loved the Notary eJournal so much, I became an affiliate!
P.S. If you currently use the Notary eJournal, I'd love to hear your feedback in the comments section below!
