The Kansas Fidlar eByte: June 2017


Last month, Fidlar Technologies hosted their Tenth Annual Educational Symposium. Nearly 200 guests from over 100 counties attended the event at the Fidlar office in Davenport, Iowa. Guest speakers included Mark Ladd who discussed UETA and the possibilities for the end of the paper document. Industry professionals walked attendees through an electronic land transaction – defining eClosings, eNotarizations, eRecording and eReturns along the way. Jake Gibson, a data security expert from LightEdge, discussed the current state of data security in the industry and the existing threats to the Recorder’s Office.

Additionally, workshops led by county officials were conducted. These sessions examined ways to keep the public informed of services exclusive to the Recorder’s Office like Property Fraud Alert. The symposium was a success and we pride ourselves in the partnerships we have with each and every county.



“I was impressed by all the presentations that were given during the Educational Symposium. The workshops that focused on things like ‘Informing the Public’ and ‘Creating Office Policies’ were very informative. As a newer official, I also found the insights of the other attendees to be useful. They gave me some unique perspective in regards to my own office. My experience was totally positive and I look forward to next year’s event.” – Sandy Casey, Crawford County Register of Deeds
