Morgan County, Illinois, Improves Public Access with DEVNET wEdge™

DEVNET and Morgan County, Illinois, are happy to announce that the county has chosen to improve public access to property information and provide up-to-date real-time data with DEVNET’s wEdge™ solution.

“Morgan County had been a DEVNET customer since 1999,” said Shawn Artis of Morgan County’s GIS Department. “We believe the addition of DEVNET’s wEdge™ solution will be a valuable tool for the public, local officials, and our partnering agencies. It will provide transparency to the assessment process by allowing access to both real-time and historic property information, and users will be able to make more well-informed decisions.”

DEVNET wEdge™ solutions provide web access to Edge™ Property Tax solutions, giving the public, local offices, outside agencies, and partner organizations a gateway to real-time authoritative taxpayer information.

“Since we were already using DEVNET solutions in various county offices, we were familiar with the DEVNET suite of programs,” Artis explained. “The wEdge™ solution felt like a perfect fit for our needs, and it can be easily synced with the current county ArcGIS software. We hope it will assist taxpayers with their property information, give title companies and attorneys easy access to deed information, and provide municipal departments with reliable and accurate data.”
