Austin, TX, December 19, 2022—GovOS, the leading provider of digital transformation solutions for local governments, today announced the Guadalupe County, TX Clerk’s Office launched three new records services. The county selected GovOS Cloud Records and Cloud Search solutions to improve access to public records by making it easier for constituents to find and view documents online. The GovOS Property Fraud Alert system allows property owners to sign up for alerts to be notified any time a document is recorded under their name or parcel ID.
Officially launched in October, the records system gives Guadalupe County constituents 24/7/365 access to more than 978,800 land records dating back as far as 1970 to current day. The GovOS Cloud Search tool delivers a Google-like search experience that returns results for both written and scanned documents. Citizens can access the county’s public records using any device with an internet connection.
“The Guadalupe County Clerk’s Office is making public records more accessible to citizens by eliminating the need to manually search through physical copies of county records—something that was once an inherent part of the records request process,” said Teresa Kiel, Guadalupe County Clerk, TX. “With our land records now stored securely in the cloud with GovOS, citizens no longer need to visit the courthouse in person to find or request documents.”
The Clerk’s Office is also taking proactive steps to help property owners protect themselves against fraud using GovOS Property Fraud Alert. The software-based monitoring tool allows constituents to create profiles to be alerted when any document–such as mortgage, deed or mortgage satisfaction–related to a specific parcel is recorded under the parcel ID or property owner’s name. Once property owners register in the system, they will be automatically notified by email when a document associated with the property is recorded.
“Guadalupe County has empowered property owners to take action and keep a close eye on potentially fraudulent activity that might be occurring in their name,” said Steve Russell, Chief Technology Officer for GovOS. “By providing services like GovOS Property Fraud Alert alongside the GovOS Cloud Records solution, Guadalupe County is demonstrating their focus on the safekeeping of land records while providing a seamless experience for users with round-the-clock access to public documents.”
Guadalupe is the 37th county in Texas to launch GovOS Cloud Records. Local governments across the country rely on the GovOS platform to make public records more easily accessible to citizens while providing secure storage with built-in cloud security. Records stored on GovOS systems are protected by SSL security protocols that reduce the likelihood of hacker or ransomware attacks.
