The Illinois Fidlar eByte – November 2018
- Media Conversion preserves original recorded documents
- Digital media format increases availability of records
- Fidlar offerings encompass the needs of Clerk/Recorder’s Office
- Commitment to serving Fidlar partnerships
We are pleased to share that the Cass County Clerk/Recorder’s Office has completed a large-scale imaging project that has digitized an extensive portion of their official repository. Via the Media Conversion processes of Fidlar, partnered with US Imaging, Cass County will be able to ensure that they have a digital copy of their physical documents in case they are ever lost due to natural disaster or from normal wear and tear.
Each original document was scanned, cleaned, named and will soon be imported back into the county’s system. By digitizing decades of the Official Public Record, County Clerk/Recorder Shelly Wessel has ensured that it will be available for many future generations and made more accessible to every constituent.
Fidlar’s goal has always been to work closely with our partners to provide them with the most powerful solutions that will in turn help them provide a better service to their communities. We strive to exceed the expectations of each partner on all sides and we want to champion each and every hurdle that your office overcomes. Our partnerships are strengthened through our abilities to deliver customer-centered support, land records management systems, remote access services, community outreach programs, imaging services, and maintaining technical installations & updates.
“I am very pleased to have the recent imaging project completed in Cass County. We have moved onto back indexing these historical records which gives them the most up-to-date status possible. The books that were digitized can now be safely stored and remain in the current condition; rather than allowing them to deteriorate into disrepair. The digital images look fantastic and the records have now become more valuable to Cass County.” – Shelly Wessel, Cass County Clerk & Recorder
