Jo Daviess County Makes Complete AVID Transition

  • Move to AVID provides smooth transition
  • Seamless eRecording processes
  • Fidlar installs, configures and trains on-site
  • AVID integrates multiple recording functions

We are pleased to announce that Jo Daviess County has fully transitioned to the AVID land records management system. County Clerk/Recorder Angela Kaiser 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 Jo Daviess County’s recording process.

AVID’s origin was centered on the eRecording process to provide users with the ability to process and manage land records through a completely paperless workflow. When implemented, the AVID system provides the unique function to seamlessly accept submitted recordings for processing by the Clerk/Recorder’s Office. The AVID solution provides the advanced ability to mitigate turnaround time but also to increase the user’s ability to smoothly operate.

Fidlar Project Managers also travel on-site to train County Partners with our land records management system, AVID. Project Manager Lauren Davis was in the Jo Daviess County to instruct users with the Best Practices of AVID. Once training was completed, Fidlar IT installed and configured the upgrade, allowing the county to quickly continue recording documents.

Additionally, Jo Daviess County has implemented iNSPECT, the assisted indexing feature. When used in processing, iNSPECT greatly increases recording accuracy while decreasing the chances of typographical error. Features like iNSPECT, document imaging, redaction, eRecording functionality and more are integrated within a singular system to maximize each and every office’s recording ability.



“We went live with AVID one month ago and we’ve been very pleased with it ever since. Lauren Davis, our Project Manager, was very instrumental in getting us up to speed with AVID and comfortable with the transition overall. We are appreciative to everyone at Fidlar who helped us with making this change. Even more so, we are excited to have new tools to help us continue to provide an invaluable service to our county.” – Angela Kaiser, Jo Daviess County Clerk/Recorder
