This esteemed award from the Government Solutions Center, honors Maine as a leader in eGovernment. "On-line service has meant improved customer service and efficiencies for the Division," says Secretary of State Dan Gwadosky. The Total UCC Solution allows subscribers, and one time credit card users, to search and file all UCC documents and images, and order certified copies on-line "With an 87% reduction in photocopies, paper mailings, and data entry, weve realized real cost savings," says Julie Flynn, Deputy for the Bureau of Corporations, Elections and Commissions.
