    This Week's Webinars

    NMVTIS State Web Interface (SWI) – How to Correct Title and Brand Data on the Central Site 
    Tuesday, August 20, 2019, 2:00-3:00 pm (ET) 
    In the past, states contacted the AAMVA Help Desk directly if they needed to make a data correction. As part of the NMVTIS reengineering effort, a Help Desk feature was created to allow states to correct their title and brand data on the central site. When states perform their own data corrections the timeliness and accuracy of the data corrections improves substantially. This webinar is focused on explaining the capability of the Help Desk feature as included in the SWI. Data correction scenarios are explained and matched to the correct update operation within the SWI. A brief overview of the SWI application will also be provided.
    Note: This webinar is for AAMVA jurisdiction members only.
    NMVTIS Suspense Resolution for Online States (AMIE Version) – Part 1  
    Thursday, August 22, 2019, 1:00 - 2:00 pm (ET)  
    NMVTIS has two third party transactions that involve updates between the central site and multiple states. Because the transactions involve multiple states and the central site, it is possible for a transaction to break down before it completes. Further activity against this title record is greatly restricted until the problem is resolved. This webinar provides instruction as to how to identify and resume suspended transactions. The intended audience for this webinar are NMVTIS Help Desk Personnel, Business Process Analyst and IT System Integrators. 
    Note: This webinar is for AAMVA jurisdiction members only.
