LINCOLN, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles launched a significant enhancement to an existing online service 13 weeks ago allowing Nebraskans to update their address online from their computer, tablet or phone. Thus far, 4,500 drivers have already used the application reflecting a savings of approximately 482 hours of DMV front desk employee time. Apply an average salary to that time, and it translates to $7,713 saved to the state agency in less than three months.
“Our front desk employees perform numerous types of services for our drivers. A service the driver can do online means more time to help those in the branch office. We are excited to accommodate the largest number of people possible and promote efficient use of our DMV services for the citizens of Nebraska,” said Rhonda Lahm, Director of the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles.
Nebraska statutory requirement states that drivers are to update their address within 60 days of moving, and using the enhancement in the driver license renewal application makes it easy. The driver scans the documents necessary to prove their address and circumvents the necessity to make a trip to a driver license office.
The online application and enhancement was developed by Nebraska Interactive, LLC. “We are thrilled with the productivity of the new enhancement and ecstatic with the government efficiencies which saves constituents time and creates more effective government services. It’s what we do!” stated Brent Hoffman, President of Nebraska Interactive.
The Driver License Renewal/Replacement online application with the Change of Address can be found by going to http://www.clickDMV.nebraska.gov. Two types of documentation are required to prove an address with 14 different options to choose from. After documents are submitted, they are reviewed for approval by DMV driver licensing staff to approve the valid documentation.
