The Cayman Islands General Registry announced a number of technology improvements to enhance its service offering to both commercial and retail customers at a launch held today at the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort.

The event, which was attended by more than 120 participants, provided an overview of the new enhancements with live interactive demonstrations. 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. I am delighted to be here today outlining what these will be."

The first of these is the development of a new web site, www.ciregistry.gov.ky which enables company searches, on-line requests for birth, death and marriage certificates, background information on the Cayman Islands company regime and general information on operations within the General Registry.

The second is an upgrade to the existing enterprise system, the Cayman Islands On-line Registry Information Service (CORIS) which is available to corporate service providers licenced by the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority.

The launch of the programme in 1997 which was known as the Companies Registry Private Sector Interface (CRPSI) was an on-island programme. An upgrade and move to the name CORIS in 2003 saw a redesign for use on the internet with windows based graphical user interface screens and worldwide access. The latest set of upgrades includes additional functionality with the ability to produce single consolidated account statements for all on-line transaction charges and electronic document uploads, faster invoice creation and modification capabilities, invoice searches and uploading from client based systems and the ability to export and print more efficiently.

The final upgrade is the development of a new web-enabled Electronic Document Management System (EDMS) which enables commercial clients to make filings of annual returns and changes to directors and officers electronically, providing users with the ability to utilise their resources more cost effectively.

Jefferson-Bulgin added, "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."
