INBiz is a web resource for Hoosier businesses to register, file reports and pay fees with the Secretary of State’s office. It launched in April and since then, 57 thousand users have registered their businesses. Secretary of State Connie Lawson says businesses can use INBiz to connect with the Department of Revenue and Department of Workforce Development.
“Over time, we plan to expand our services by partnering with other agencies who can also assist with the unique needs of our business owners,” says Lawson.
Indiana Chief Technology Officer Dewand Neely says INBiz uses security measures modeled after those used by the U.S. military.
“It kinda goes maybe against what you’d think, putting all your eggs in one basket but we’re able to keep an eye on that all in one location. We can put special analytics and measuring around that and have a more concentrated effort on protecting that information,” says Neely.
Funding for INBiz comes from the state budget, out of appropriations to the Secretary of State’s office.
