RMV Honored for Green Initiative
(Boston, MA) Registrar Rachel Kaprielian today announced that the RMV's Electronic Title Management Program (ELT) has been recognized by VINtek, a national lien processing firm for replacing paper lien notices and releases with electronic files.
The RMV was one of the first motor vehicle managers in the country to offer electronic lien and title (ELT) technology in 1994. When a consumer obtains an auto loan from a lender, the RMV sends an electronic file instead of a paper title as evidence of the lender's lien on the vehicle.
Joyce Mover who manages the ELT program helped recruit 181 lenders to use the service which boasts more than 850,000 electronic files in the RMV database. VINtek bestowed its first annual excellence award on Mover and the ELT program.
"Joyce Mover has been an advocate of ELT and the benefits of going paperless to save time and money," said Larry Highbloom, president of VINtek. "The customer centric focus of the Massachusetts ELT service should serve as an example to other state motor vehicle agencies throughout the country."
"Our goal is to provide the lien holders and citizens of Massachusetts with an efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly vehicle title process," said Charles LaRocca, Director of Registrations and Titles. "Receiving this honor from VINtek highlights the accomplishments of our dedicated ELT staff during the last 14 years."
In addition to offering lenders ELT service, the RMV added a new on-line service that allows lenders and vehicle owners a secure way to look up titles through the agency's website located at www.massrmv.com.
