RMV Business Partner Communications Website

Welcome to the Registry of Motor Vehicles’ (RMV) Business Partner Communications Website. The RMV just completed and launched a major system transformation on November 12, 2019, replacing the registry’s 30+ year old mainframe application (ALARS) with a new web-based application (ATLAS).

ATLAS provides business partners with new, modern, and more convenient ways to access and share data with the RMV, allowing for efficient, quick, and reliable ways to conduct business.

This website continues to provide a centralized repository that allows us to share information and provide ongoing support for the transition. In addition to training, you can review recent documents, view previous webinars, and see the changes and improvements that ALTAS provides.

Training for ATLAS Release 2 Vehicle Services

We have provided system training to RMV Business Partners with R2 ATLAS. The way the training is delivered varies by program and business partner type.

The RMV’s ATLAS Training page provides access to training for your program or partner group.

DocuSign Process

To ensure that you have seamless access to important RMV data and systems, we require you to review, electronically sign, and return an Agreement for Access to Records and Data Maintained by the Registry of Motor Vehicles, as well as other necessary documents. These documents will be emailed through DocuSign, a third party secure service. For more information on the RMV’s DocuSign process, click here.

Why Replace ALARS?

The RMV has transformed its business processes and replaced its technology to deliver exceptional customer service for businesses and residents across the Commonwealth. ATLAS, which replaced ALARS, is our new system of record. We implemented ATLAS on November 12, 2019. We upgraded our technology because:

  • ALARS was implemented in 1986; as a 30-year-old mainframe-based system, it was dated in terms of technical and user interface.
  • Core legacy product was expensive to maintain, confusing to users, and lacking flexibility to update as business requirements changed.

FAST Enterprises, LLC was selected (through a competitive bid process) to implement their Commercial Off-the-Shelf motor vehicle product to replace ALARS. FAST and the Massachusetts RMV partnered for the implementation of this web-based application. ATLAS provides customers with an easier, quicker, and more convenient customer experience.


The RMV has migrated to the MOVEit Secure File Transfer Process platform for all batch files. MOVEit provides secure, modern technology in an easy-to-use platform. Interchange, the current batch file transfer process you are using to send and/or receive files from the RMV, will no longer be used.

Please refer to the MOVEit section for more details.
