HUDSON COUNTY, N.J., June 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hudson County Register's Office, the organization charged with recording, filing and preserving all formal written documents which affect real property, launched Granicus' Land and Vitals Records Management solution this week to manage available records online in order to increase accessibility and convenience for citizens.
The Register's Office manages hundreds of thousands of land records dating back to county inception including deeds, mortgages, assignments, letters of attorney to convey lands and other official public records.
These land records, dating back to 1962, will now be made available online thanks to Granicus, the county's choice for their secure records modernization partner. Granicus works with over 4,000 public sector organizations to create seamless digital experiences between government and their citizens. Hudson County chose Granicus' Land and Vitals Records Management solution due to its simplified searching and reporting process, public viewing capabilities and disaster recovery functionality.
"Residents are accustomed to accessing information online from their private sector service providers and, as a result, have come to expect that level of service delivery, speed and transparency from government," said Hudson County Register Diane Coleman. "Hudson County is taking the important step of digitizing records to meet modern citizen expectations and allow for greater flexibility in accessing property records. This step is also part of the County's overall Disaster Recovery Plan; in the event our physical records are destroyed, our records are preserved in a digital format."
"We are pleased to assist the Hudson County Register's Office with its goal of better serving their constituents as well as increasing access to public records and providing an additional layer of disaster recovery," said Mike Battaglia managing director of Granicus Land and Vitals Division. "By automating the management of public records, Granicus solutions reduce the time-intense manual process of document creation and storage."
