ACS Users Group Meeting

by @ 11:24 pm. Filed under Website, Registry Ops

The ACS User Group met earlier today in Worcester. This organization consists of all the registries in Massachusetts that use the ACS computer system – Berkshire Middle, Berkshire North, Berkshire South, Bristol Fall River, Dukes, Hampshire, Middlesex North, Middlesex South, Nantucket, Suffolk and Worcester. The Essex South Registry in Salem is said to be switching to the ACS system, but that might not happen until this fall, after they’ve into their new quarters. The major item of discussion was a revised registered land system. While this will have vary little impact on the customer/users of the system, there are several new tools that will make the task of the registry in creating new certificates of title considerably easier. Unfortunately, there’s no timetable as to when this new feature will begin being deployed to registries. It will require some conversion of existing databases and additional training, so it’s not something that is easily done. The second major topic of discussion was the appearance and functionality of the www.masslandrecords.com site which is where the data and images contained in the ACS system are displayed. The objective here is to have the website look and function more like the public access terminals within the registry. ACS is ready to make the necessary alterations as soon as the registers agree to a final list of changes to the website. This may take place as soon as this summer.
