INDIANAPOLIS -- Secretary of State Connie Lawson Thursday announced the expansion of INBiz, a web resource that connects Hoosier businesses with state agencies.
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, 57,000 users have registered their businesses. Now, 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,” Lawson says.
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," Neely says. "We can put special analytics and measuring around that and have a more concentrated effort on protecting that information.”
Funding for INBiz comes from the state budget, out of appropriations to the Secretary of State’s office.
