Based on IAAO and USPAP industry standards, the DEVNET Edge™ CAMA solution automates appraisal functions for accurate parcel valuation, integrated building cost options, and sales and income analysis.

“As a recently appointed Supervisor of Assessments, I appreciate the effort put forth by the DEVNET support team,” said Coles County Supervisor of Assessments Karen Biddle. “Their hard work has helped us to keep the Property Tax cycle moving along on schedule.
