The Minnesota Fidlar eByte: April 2016


We are excited to announce that the Steele County Recorder’s Office has adopted SWIFT into their daily operations.  SWIFT is a module that is integrated with the land records management software solution, AVID. Paper documents submitted to the office get returned electronically to the appropriate recipients via email after being accepted by the county.  SWIFT allows for compliance of the regulations set forth by TRID, as timely notification of a recorded document is given along with the ability to easily track a document’s processing status.



SWIFT has been well received by Steele County customers and by offering the service to them I know I’m providing numerous benefits. Documents are returned in PDF format which allows for submitters to save it directly back into their processing system, which simplifies their processing efforts. The digitization of the document’s return allows for time and money to be saved. Those who opt-in to have documents returned to them via SWIFT have found it to be very rewarding.” – Rick Kvien, Steele County Recorder
