Hart InterCivic, a provider of electronic solutions for state and local
governments, this year plans to introduce a complete Web-based system for
filing, recording, managing and accessing official public records.
The company's Anthem product suite is the next system on deck for county
recorders, building on the features of Hart Workflow for Public Records,
said Bill Stotesbery, vice president marketing for Hart InterCivic.
Fifty counties in 15 states use Hart Workflow for Public Records, a
solution for county recorders that is designed to speed the processing of
land records and marriage licenses, to improve the recording and preservation
of birth and death records and to manage access to those records, according
to the company.
The Anthem product suite extends this solution by placing all processes
and data on central server and enabling users — including a county's recording
staff as well as external users — to access the system via standard Web
Anthem's four modules may be installed individually or as an integrated
*Anthem OPR. This module includes business-driven components that support
management of public records from cashiering, imaging, indexing and retrieval.
*Anthem eRecorder. This is an open interface that enables Anthem to
electronically receive and process documents that originate outside of the
*Anthem Vital Record. This module includes a group of products that
support management of marriage, birth, death and other records.
*Anthem WebAccess. This supports public access to public records via
any standard browser.
When the product is in October or November, Anthem will focus mainly
on property records, Stotesbery said. However, the system will evolve over
time with the addition of new features, he said.
