Highland County Recorder Chad E. McConnaughey is launching a new records management application, CountyFusion™, powered by Kofile Technologies, Inc.

CountyFusion™ provides a comprehensive solution to expedite the processing of land records and other recordings and supporting financials. It also provides a user-friendly search portal for staff and public users visiting the county and online.

Highland County’s implementation will include cashiering, OCR for indexing, customized workflows, web search portal, customized reporting, full legacy system data conversion, disaster recovery services and redaction as necessary. The Recorder’s Office will be closed Friday, April 20 in order to transition the office to the new system.

The solution protects the important records filed with the recorder’s office using multiple-level data replication. All documents recorded at the office are immediately backed up – both within the county office and at Kofile’s data center facility – ensuring the county's data is safe and secure.

The county will continue to accept eRecordings, providing submitters the ability to electronically submit official records in minutes – virtually eliminating travel time and expenses associated with visiting the local courthouse.

"We are excited to implement CountyFusion™ to streamline our recording procedures with the latest technology, utilizing all that it has to offer,” McConnaughey said. “The automated indexing using OCR will significantly reduce indexing time and possible errors. It is important to continue to enhance the services for our constituents and focus on efficiencies in our office and cost savings for the county.

“We look forward to answering any questions the public may have regarding our new recording system. We will be hosting training sessions beginning on April 24 and April 25. Please contact the office at (937) 393-9954 to set up an appointment time.”
