General Registry launches online services

The Cayman Islands General Registry launched new online services for commercial and retail customers on Wednesday.

A presentation of the improved service offering, using live interactive demonstrations, was held at the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort and attracted more than 120 participants.

During her introduction Cindy Jefferson-Bulgin, Registrar General said, ‘We are committed to providing our customers with quality services and the ability to keep abreast of technological advancements is key to ensuring we provide our customers with the information technology solutions they demand.’

The technology enhancements centre on the development of a new web site which enables company searches, online requests for birth, death and marriage certificates, background information on the Cayman Islands company regime and general information on operations within the General Registry.

In addition the existing enterprise system, the Cayman Islands Online Registry Information Service, has been upgraded. CORIS is available to corporate service providers licensed by the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority. It now features the ability to produce single consolidated account statements for all online transaction charges and electronic document uploads, faster invoice creation and modification capabilities as well as invoice searches. The uploading from client based systems and the ability to export and print has also been improved.

In addition the General Registry has developed a new web-enabled Electronic Document Management System (EDMS).

The service allows commercial clients to file annual returns and changes to directors and officers electronically.

Jefferson-Bulgin commented on the new services stating that, ‘We are confident that the upgrades we are launching today will provide significant additional benefits to customers and that this further demonstrates our commitment to remaining a customer-focused, responsive organisation.’
