February 01, 2010 -- St. Charles, IL – Located in the metro area of Denver, with 170,000 land parcels to manage, Adams County Colorado was experiencing a significant amount of changes in their land records and related activity. Already a long-term and advanced user of GIS software from industry leader ESRI, the County was in search of a solution that would help them streamline their parcel management workflow, and ensure the highest and best level of integration between their GIS and CAMA systems. They were also looking for a product that would allow them to keep better track of the history and genealogy of land parcels in their GIS. Their search led them to Sidwell’s Parcel Builder suite of software, specifically Parcel Builder-Administrator (PBA) and the Genealogy extension to PBA.
Parcel Builder leverages the latest technology within ESRI and the geodatabase to streamline the tasks related to land records management and workflows. The Parcel Builder-Administrator module selected by Adams County provides a tool for the efficient management of land parcel numbers. With PBA, the County recognized the workflow efficiencies that could be realized by the integration between the GIS and CAMA, in that PBA provides synchronization of these parcel numbers, ensuring accuracy and reduced duplication of efforts throughout the Assessor’s office. Additionally, as the County manages property splits and their parcel number history, the Genealogy extension to Administrator will allow them to track the complex “parent-child” relationship between parcels and associate related documents and images with each parcel or transaction. According to Adams County Assessor Gil Reyes, “Sidwell’s Parcel Builder-Administrator will allow us to maximize our productivity and most importantly our accuracy at a reasonable cost. The flexibility of the product allowed us to tailor our purchase, and we didn’t have to buy unnecessary modules to get what we wanted and needed.” Adds Assessor Reyes, “The staff of Sidwell listened to us and assisted us in our selection process.”
