T1 Manager is CSI's powerful information and management tool that includes proactive alerts that allow the Recorder to see and manage the health of their Title 1 LRMS.

The Recorder will now get data transparency and accuracy, access to key data, and the ability to proactively make better decisions about their records and the productivity of their users.

ERSP's, LRMS's and counties receive, review, route, receipt, record, and return documents (similar to the way you process paper documents), typically within just minutes - through one simple, open solution, managed by eRMConnectTM.

The integrity of the county records is paramount. Recorders across the country can't refuse to put a record into the official and public land records just because they suspect that a document may be fraudulent. CSI has created an automatic, or opt-in, alert system that allow homeowners and others to be notified in the event that a document is recorded that is relevant to them or their property.

In a news release, Commissioner Brendan Kearns, the county's computer system was attacked by a malware (virus) program that has adversely affected daily operations. That attack has resulted in some information stored on internal servers being locked down and not accessible for several days and weeks. Thankfully for the Recorder's office they had CSI's T1Protect. CSI was able to restore the Recorder's systems within 24 hours of notification. Most of us think it will never happen to our county. Please take this important warning seriously.
