The Indiana Fidlar eByte: November 2017


We are pleased to announce that the Howard County Recorder’s Office has recently made the transition to our land records management system, AVID, Powered by iNSPECT. Recorder Brook Cleaver was interested in updating the technology in their office and with AVID they will be better prepared to execute eRecordings, reduce paper shuffle and improve the efficiency and integrity of Howard County’s recording process.

Howard County also decided to integrate the assisted-indexing feature, iNSPECT, which identifies key index information and presents it to the user. The process of indexing is advanced with the addition of touchscreen functionality, users now interact with documents in a completely new fashion. The intelligence of iNSPECT works to diminish the possibilities for human error, all the while increasing the integrity of the data in process. With iNSPECT, Howard County will take their office and the Official Public Record into the future.



“My Chief Deputy and I visited Whitley County, IN, to view AVID in a live, working environment and we were able to process documents. AVID felt like a very easy program to learn. From that point forward, we were convinced AVID would benefit Howard County by way of efficiencies realized in indexing, eRecording integration, automatic report generation, and prompt return of documents via SWIFT. The consistency and accuracy we can achieve with iNSPECT and IRIS is very exciting! AVID brings great value to our office and the constituents of Howard County. Our Fidlar Team is very responsive and has been with us every step of the way.” – Brook Cleaver, Howard County Recorder
