Hawaii Business Express Wins Outstanding Website Award
Hawaii Business Express (HBE), has been nationally recognized with a Web Marketing Association award for Outstanding Website in the government category. The award is an extraordinary honor and HBE received top scores in the ease of use, copy-writing, content, and interactivity criteria.
Hawaii Business Express was created at the request of the State of Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs (DCCA), Business Registration Division (BREG) and in partnership with Hawaii Information Consortium, LLC, the official Internet portal manager of eHawaii.gov.
In April, BREG’s suite of business services was entirely redesigned to better serve Hawaii’s business community by incorporating feedback from both new and power users. The most helpful feature is a new dashboard that makes it easy to manage all business activity in a single location and sends reminders of items that are overdue or coming due soon. It also includes 24/7 access to receipts and purchased documents, the ability to track the status of any filing, and improved sorting and filtering to more quickly find a business.
Included in the redesign were the following services:
- Annual report submission
- Business search and document purchases
- Registration of and changes to businesses, trade names and marks
- Notifications and reminders
BREG maintains the business registry for all corporations, limited liability companies, general partnerships, limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships and limited liability limited partnerships conducting business activities in the State. In addition, the registry contains trade names, trademarks, service marks and publicity name rights.
This site was launched as part of the eHawaii.gov state portal program. Pursuant to chapter 27G, Hawaii Revised Statutes, the portal program is overseen by the Access Hawaii Committee, which collaborates with provider Hawaii Information Consortium (HIC) along with state and county agencies to continually identify new online services to be added to the portal.
