Conveyance and Mortgage Indexing

An indexing program that includes input for parties name, act, book, page, section, township, range, file date, kind, address, description, and a free-form notes section for custom notes regarding that particular recording. This module comes with many features to speed and enhance data input, such as pull down boxes for kinds and frequently used corporations.  The intuitive interface also auto repeats last names for entries with same last names as well as one button reversals for recordings, such as exchanges. In addition, the indexing program checks for the correct spelling of names by looking up previous entries in the database "on the fly." If a new name is keypunched that has never been entered before, an alert “pops up” and allows the user to check the spelling.


The Conveyance and Mortgage module also has a Public Search option. The public viewing module allows the public to perform searches from computers in the courthouse and remotely via the World Wide Web. The search criteria can include book, page, section, township, range, file date, kind, address, name, date range, act number, section, township, and range. Mini-indexes from the search can be printed as well as the imaged documents associated with the instrument. Individuals with accounts will be automatically charged. Clients without an account are processed as cash clients that can be invoiced at any time.

Visual Index

The Visual Index can be operated at any workstation on the network. Images are passed to this program from the Visual Scan module in a categorized batch form. Each individual document is presented onscreen to the indexer. An act or document number is all that is required to connect to the desired application. The easy to use process allows for document modifications such as adding or deleting pages.


An add-on to this module is the Visual Plats program. The plats program facilitates data input and indexing of plats and large format images. Search criteria can be name, subdivision, section, township, and range. If the clerk’s office has a large format scanner; printing, and viewing of large plats is also available.
