HOUSTON (Aug. 10, 2004) - Landata Technologies Inc. has introduced e-STAR Plus (ESP), a comprehensive Solution for Total Automation of Records for county clerks and recorders.
The ESP package supports document cashiering, imaging, indexing/verification, public access and printing, as well as capabilities for e-recording, e-commerce, data warehousing and disaster recovery.
"We thought the name 'ESP' was appropriate because it represents everything a county clerk or recorder needs as a total records management solution - in addition to reducing overall costs and providing a self-funding revenue stream," said Alan Cellura, president and chief executive officer, Landata Technologies.
"e-STAR Plus is built on a rules-based architecture, utilizing the .NET and SQL platform," said Cellura. "This structure is technically a huge step forward. It allows county clerks and recorders the flexibility to choose the modules they need to support, control and enhance their workflow. It also allows us the flexibility to tailor those modules - without extensive programming - to quickly respond to specific customer requirements."
Current installations of LANDSCAN®, Landata Technologies former land document management system, can be updated to the new ESP platform. Landata has already installed ESP in numerous counties in the United States and most recently in Bexar County (San Antonio), Texas.
"One of the most significant benefits of ESP is that it positions a county's documents for data warehousing and Web-based revenue opportunities," said Cellura. "That is crucial in the current environment where county governments are being pushed to do more work with fewer resources.
"ESP seamlessly incorporates connectivity with e-recording capabilities from title and settlement services companies - as well as for Web-based document access with e-commerce capability," he added. "Backed by Landata Technologies' solid reputation for customer satisfaction, we can assure that moving to ESP will improve efficiency, lower operating costs, generate additional revenue and enhance satisfaction for county governments and their taxpaying customers."
