Why Austin Data
What is a Title Plant? Is it a county clerk grantor/grantee index stored in a third party computer system that attempts to perform geographic searches? Maybe the vendor generates the Title Plant using a form of computer automation, like Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, in an attempt to extract relevant elements from documents. In theory these alternatives might appear adequate but in practice the increased risks and decreased search efficiencies pose a serious problem. What happens when the county clerk grantor/grantee index omits a legal description or the OCR technology mistakes block 8 for 3? Did you really just miss that easement or mechanic's lien?
At Austin Data, the Title Plants we maintain are built exclusively by trained employees using consistent data abstracting rules established over the past 30 years. All of our Title Plant records are subjected to our rigorous quality control process led by our talented in-house Data Control department. We have 3 decades of research invested in resolving complex land identification issues within the counties we maintain.
The continued debate between Thick vs. Thin Title Plants simply alludes to reviewing every page of every document or the number of elements abstracted for each record. Austin Data does build Thick Title Plants but we understand the true differentiation is between Efficient vs. Inefficient Title Plants. Consider that some vendors charge over three times more than Austin Data for digital images of real property documents. However, when compared to Austin Data, these vendors' Title Plants are comprised of lower quality data. In practice, this means the Title Plant records are not sufficient to determine if an instrument actually affects the transaction at hand. As a result, one must purchase a larger number of digital images at a significantly higher price. Finally, one has to spend their time performing the examination. Unfortunately, it is likely digital images were purchased that were unnecessary. Does this sound like an Efficient Title Plant solution? Using Title Plants managed by Austin Data will maximize your searching efficiency and save you money by minimizing the labor involved with each file processed.
We produce the highest quality data on the market. Why risk increasing your cost per order or potentially damaging your relationships with your customers and underwriters by using a low quality (inefficient) Title Plant? Contact us for a competitive solution today.
Our customers say
"It seems your competitor’s business model is designed to lower the base price and make up the difference, and more, with digital image charges."
"We evaluated a competing “Thick” Title Plant posted with computer automation. The results are clear with these RoboPlants: I would need to hire at least 5 more examiners to process the same number of files I process with your Title Plant."
"Thank you so much for your time today. It is refreshing to deal with a person so knowledgeable of the title side of our industry. I now feel more confident working our “ADI” counties."
