As the economy continues to recover, local governments are being inundated with applications for new business licenses—as well as a backlog of expiring ones.

Unqork’s no-code application platform enables government agencies to streamline business incorporation & UCC filing processes by instilling a high level of automation; delivering a modern, intuitive applicant journey; and integrating multiple payment options. These features reduce time-to-issuance and accelerate economic activity.

Historically, business incorporation & UCC filing has been a very manual process, so much so that it can threaten to push back a business’ opening date. Local businesses are the heartbeat of economic development, so it’s imperative that this process is as efficient and seamless as possible.

Like many other public service offerings that were in-person and required human-in-the-loop intervention, this process was heavily impacted by COVID-19. Now that cities and states are beginning to re-open fully, it’s even more critical that there is a process in place that automates and future-proofs adoption as additional requirements emerge. 

With Unqork’s Business Incorporation & UCC Filing tools, state officials are able to provide applicants with an accessible, easy-to-use filing process—so easy-to-use that it can be completed on a mobile device. These tools offer regulators predictable, organized workflows with smart tools to maximize efforts and prioritize resources.
