Titles office goes techno

THE office of the Registrar of Titles is undergoing a major restructure to improve service efficiency.

Speaking to this newspaper yesterday, Registrar of Titles Gene Bai said the plan was to move away from the manual recording of information.

Mr Bai said computerisation so customers could easily access information.

He said data and record keeping was expensive so using computers would save money and time.

"Also the turnaround time is lengthy for the titles to be processed and we believe the computerisation will set an exact date for a title to be processed, stamped and approved," he said. "Also at the moment there is no automatic link to our business partners such as the Lands Departments, iTaukei Lands Trust Board and other institutions. Once this computerisation is set up we'll be able to link with them."
