The Notarization Process Now Moves At The Speed Of Digital Technology!SM

Spectra has invented and patented a disruptive, proprietary technology platform for the direct, electronic notarization of documents including the verification of all signatory parties.

The technology is easily adaptable to any digital platform from mainframes to cell phones. It can be used by corporations as well as individuals for notarization of a variety of applications from documents to objects, musical scores and dance routines, scripts, inventions, ideas, jingles, etc.

NOTARIES: AN ANCIENT TRADITION

The origins of notaries can be traced back to ancient Egypt — a time when making records of official transactions became important to humanity. Notarization played a key role in the development of governments by facilitating commerce, agriculture and tax collection. The notary process became a critical component necessary for an organized society.

In ancient Rome, a notary, or “notarius” as they were known, was an appointed public official assigned to create written documents of agreement and/or wills and hold them for safekeeping.

Today, a Notary Public (or notary or public notary) of the common law is a public officer constituted by law to serve the public in non-contentious matters, usually concerned with estates, deeds, powers-of-attorney and domestic and international business.

A notary’s main functions are: to administer oaths and affirmations, take affidavits and statutory declarations, witness and authenticate the execution of certain classes of documents, take acknowledgments of deeds and other conveyances, protest notes and bills of exchange, provide notice of foreign drafts, prepare marine or ship’s protests in cases of damage, provide exemplifications and notarial copies, and perform certain other official acts depending on the jurisdiction. Any such act is known as a “notarization” and today it is still basically done manually.

The term notary public only refers to common-law notaries and should not be confused with civil-law notaries because in the United States and Canada, a notary public has powers that are far more limited than those of civil-law or other common-law notaries, both of whom are qualified lawyers admitted to the bar: such notaries may be referred to as “notaries-at-law” or “lawyer notaries”.

Unlike many industries, such as banking, manufacturing, design, and publishing that have been radically changed by the introduction of electronic digital technologies, the function of a notary is still being practiced just as it was hundreds and thousands of years ago! Today, when you need a Notary you either have to go find one or pay to have that person arrive at your location to conduct a notarization of your documents. Oftentimes, for many ideas and transactions, this process is ignored as it is an inconvenient process.

ONE DAY, AN IDEA WAS BORN!

In 2010, I was having trouble locating a notary and I asked myself “Why not develop a digital notary system as a fee-based service, replacing the analog notarization process, so that anyone, located anywhere in the world can use the service anytime to protect a wide variety of work-products simply by accessing their secured cell phone, laptop or computer 24/7?

This idea, now called “NOTARIUS”, is the Latin word for “Notary”.. Spectra Systems & Technology, Inc. was recently awarded a patent, by the United States Patent Office on the method, process, and system for use by individuals, corporations and yes, even notaries to speed up their notary process offering new and expanded services to their clients. Oftentimes, people confuse the “Notary” process with the process of “time stamping”.

“Time stamping” is only a sub-part of the total Notary process. The validation of the signatories is the major part of the “Notary” process. The Notarius Digital Notary System opens new avenues for individual or groups to quickly and economically establish the authorship, conclusively or unquestionably the origin and security of their ideas, work-product, contracts, location, etc… even at one o’clock in the morning or to collaborate with associates anywhere in the world and across multiple time zones.
