Integrity Title Records provides title plant Hosting, Conversion, Maintenance and Marketing for Title Agents desiring to increase the value of their title plants, provide a better tool for their abstracting and examination staff and generate additional revenue.
Plant owners who want to protect their assets and generate more revenue may need to look at their Title Plants differently.
This requires using the latest technology to convert data into an electronic format, making information available via the Internet, using contacts to generate more agency business, and create more revenue by offering data through multiple sources. The end results may be to make it less economically appealing for competitors to move into your market.
It is important to protect your title plant asset by first converting your paper or microfilm to electronic images. The benefits of historical plant conversion are the "Three P's", Preservation, Productivity and Profits.
Preserve your paper plant -- cards or tract books -- by bringing in an onsite scanning team to:
Place index cards in proper order
Create Folders representing current file drawers
Create Sub Folders representing Surveys and Subdivisions/Section/Block/Lots
Consult Plant Managers with organizational and scanning questions
Scan Cards, Tract Books, Maps, Abstracts, Base Files, Run Sheets and Starter Files
Backup scanned data daily and make available to Abstractors and Examiners immediately
Save complete sets of data and images on DVDs and store off-site in secure location
An additional benefit of scanning is that the index cards will always be where they should be. If the records are scanned properly then the index cards will never be out of order.
In most card plants the title staff is continually required to get up from their desk to search through file drawers to find what they need. If Abstractors and Examiners can remain at their desk and navigate the plant from their computers this will be a huge time saver. If researchers have to "touch" the paper, they can print hard copies of the pages they need. Time is money and increased productivity among the title staff cannot be underestimated.
Many Agents with paper plants are unwilling to allow Landmen or Right of Way Agents into their facilities because they are legitimately concerned about the care (or lack of care) with which some of these individuals handle their records. By scanning indexes and images and making them available via a computer "kiosk", with no connection to the Internet and without the ability to print, then depending upon the oil & gas or other real estate activity in your area you may be able to take advantage of another revenue stream.
When oil is selling at $100 per barrel, most landmen are less concerned about the cost for title plant access as they are about buying leases. So, if you can generate more money without risk of loss or damage to your title plant then allowing access to landmen makes sense. Besides it helps pay the rent.
The title plant is YOUR data which you and your predesessors have spent years and generations to build. Our goal is to help you plant owners make more money by using technology to improve plant operations and leveraging information in an online environment.
Integrity Title can either build plants from existing electronic data or work with you to convert your plant to a web-based delivery solution.
Our background is as Abstractors and Title Examiners so we have a thorough understanding of the needs of the Title Plant users and Title Plant owners.
