Martin County, FL Property Appraiser’s Office goes live on Patriot’s AssessPro AP5!
Patriot Properties, Inc. and the Martin County Property Appraiser’s Office are pleased to announce that they have finalized implementation of Patriot’s AssessPro AP5 Computer-Aided Mass Appraisal (CAMA) solution. The installation of AssessPro AP5 will enable the Martin County Property Appraiser professionals to consolidate their business processes and perform their valuation, mass appraisal, assessment administration and Tax Roll processing entirely in AP5 and retire a variety of legacy systems and databases including the ProVal CAMA system formerly in use. The AP5 application, built on a leading edge (.NET) architecture, enables multi-year database functionality, integration with best-in-class partners, and a full product suite including online filing solutions for Homestead and TPP for automated taxpayer filing and Patriot’s award-winning, web-based Geographic Information System (GIS) application.
Martin County elected Property Appraiser Jenny Fields commented, “Converting a CAMA system impacts every corner of the Property Appraiser’s organization from front office customer service with homestead applications all the way to statistical analysis of mass appraisal data and the many other critical functions in between. We selected Patriot because they hold one of the largest footprints in the Florida CAMA market and they have demonstrated commitment to their long-term Florida jurisdictions. We were very pleased with the coordinated implementation and the opportunity to have Patriot key staff leadership working directly with our leadership team. This expedited the release of solutions during the critical transition period and lead to a successful Go Live event. We are now operating on their latest AP5 software for the 2021 Tax Roll year and have full confidence the many challenging legislative requirements will be fulfilled as we approach the tax roll reporting season this summer. “
Patriot CEO Jim McCathern stated, “It is gratifying to successfully complete this important project on time and on budget with our partners from Martin County led by the Honorable Jenny Fields, CFA and her highly capable professional staff. We have been interested in partnering with the County for many years and they represent a significant addition to our Florida customer base. The MCPA professional staff has been very engaged throughout the project and has adeptly transitioned over to using AP5 exclusively for their critical mass appraisal, assessment administration and Tax Roll functions starting with the opening of their 2021 Tax Roll recently”.
The Martin County Property Appraiser’s Office with a main office in Stuart and branch offices in Hobe Sound and Indiantown, manages and updates Just, Assessed and Taxable values annually on approximately 95,000 real estate parcels and 10,000 Tangible Personal Property Accounts. Martin County is joined by several other leading counties in Florida including Brevard, Clay, Dixie, Gadsden, Monroe and St Lucie as Patriot Properties fully implemented AP5 CAMA partners.
Patriot Properties has been providing organically developed CAMA solutions since their founding in 1985 and implementing those solutions in Florida for over 20 years.
