Landata e-Recording System Integrates With Hart InterCivic's Anthem System to Enable Remote Electronic Recording

October 31, 2005

SAN ANTONIO and AUSTIN, Texas, -- Landata Technologies Inc. and Hart InterCivic have signed an alliance agreement supporting integration between the Landata e-Recording System(TM) (LERS) and the Hart InterCivic Anthem(TM) System, a document management and imaging system for county clerks and registers of deeds that fully supports electronic recording through its eRecorder module.

"This agreement provides full-service support via LERS for submitters -- usually title companies, attorneys, banks and lenders -- to seamlessly electronically record all types of real estate documents in counties using the Anthem System," said Alan Cellura, president and chief executive officer, Landata Technologies.

"With this integration, submitters can remotely file electronic land records with county recorders from their offices, utilizing Hart's Anthem recordation system and eRecording module," said Cellura. "Our LERS/Anthem program helps counties reduce operating costs in cashiering, indexing, stamping, return mailing and personnel."

Earlier this year, Hart InterCivic's Anthem System in Fort Bend County, Texas, (located just southwest of Houston), accepted real estate documents recorded electronically using LERS. Landata Technologies and Hart InterCivic currently are working to implement the LERS e-recording integration in Tarrant County, Texas, and have plans to implement this same integration with Anthem Systems in Colorado, North Carolina and Washington by year-end.

"We are excited about helping our county customers to further streamline their processes and to make their offices more efficient," said Matt Walker, vice president of business development for Hart InterCivic. "Our integration with LERS helps us to continue to promote increased adoption of eRecording technology, thus adding another submission stream for electronically submitted documents to be processed by our Anthem eRecorder module."

The Hart Anthem eRecorder module offers the county a proven way to electronically accept and record multiple document types. The open architecture provides a vendor-neutral approach that handles all levels of electronically recorded documents faster and with the assurance that industry standards have been met.

LERS is a desktop, standalone application on an open systems platform, using a rules-based architecture to manage all document types for imaging and transmission. The secure electronic submission of documents includes electronic document images, index information and cashiering information.
