Register of Deeds Takes Another Step
Toward Full Online Presence of Services

A series of training sessions last week preceded the September 18 launch of the Register of Deeds latest online service called “Landmark,” Diane Battiato, Douglas County assessor/register of deeds, said. “Landmark” is a new addition to the list of services that the office provides – an “effective, efficient, user-friendly, web-based land-records-management” system.
Workshops for “Landmark,” a product of Pioneer Technology Group, were conducted via webinar at the Omaha/Douglas Civic Center for all potential users of the new system. They had planned to conduct the workshops in person, Battiato said, but Hurricane Irma prevented the Florida-based representatives from traveling.
During the second of four training sessions, the conference room was filled, with about 25 in attendance, plus 38 more via webinar.
 “We’ve been working on this since 2006,” Battiato said. “This is the third step in our plan to have the Register of Deeds side of the office completely online by the end of 2018.”
Diane Battiato, the assessor/register of deeds, said expanding the office’s online presence has been one of her main goals since she took office in 2005.  In 2009, she initiated the first step to reach her goal by becoming the first Register of Deeds office in Nebraska to offer electronic recording, known as e-recording.  Then last year, a property-records search program called “Archive Access” was launched.  The program made thousands upon thousands of historical property-records images, from as far back as 1854, available to users via the web.  Landmark is the third step in her plan to have the Register of Deeds side of the office completely online by the end of 2018.  
 “It’s been a long, detailed process…and not without its share of stumbling blocks,” Battiato said.  “But we prevailed.  And today, we can proudly make available to our users a comprehensive, state of the art land records management system that provides a full spectrum of electronic records management services, such as auto indexing, e-recording, 24/7 records accessibility, and public-access county links.  And, as a bonus, the system will integrate with other county systems in the future.  Needless to say, we are very pleased.”
