Kansans can now renew their vehicle registration from the convenience of their mobile phone with the launch of the new State of Kansas iKan application, Governor Jeff Colyer, M.D., announced Thursday.
The iKan platform is designed to allow users to interact with multiple state services in a self-service, intuitive experience from their mobile phones, tablets, and computers. In addition to renewing vehicle registration, the application empowers Kansans to have access to their official documents anywhere they bring their phone, tablet, or have access to a computer.
“One of the foremost goals of my administration is to make government more accessible for Kansans,” Governor Colyer said. “I’m so pleased that with the launch of iKan, we now have more options to make transactions quickly and conveniently.”
Citizens who use the application will benefit from a modern and personalized experience, with the ease and convenience of having everything they need in one place. Users can receive status updates through email alerts and push notifications for services that previously would have required a drive to the closest office location and a wait in line. The ease of iKan will increase digital transactions while reducing office wait time for those who don’t choose to use the app.
In addition to simplifying the vehicle registration renewal experience, the state plans to roll out access to other frequently requested services through iKan, including vital records and voter registration in the coming months.
“Providing modern, intuitive solutions is a priority for Kansas, as we continue to transform our digital strategy to better serve our citizens,” said Donna Shelite, the Kansas Chief Information Technology Officer. “iKan gives Kansans the ability to get what they need from multiple services in a single experience.”
To launch this new service, Kansas partnered with PayIt, a Midwest-based technology firm specializing in the simplification of government transactions across the country, including taxes, utilities, court records, and more as part of their unique, cloud-based platform. PayIt has provided the myKTag app for the Kansas Turnpike since 2014.
“We’re excited to partner with the State of Kansas and see great results at home,” said John Thomson, CEO of PayIt.
PayIt simplifies doing business with state and local government through its award-winning digital government and payment platform. Along with our government partners, we are transforming the customer experience and making government more modern, convenient and mobile.
