Data Trace:

Trusted Partner,

Title Plant Pioneer

At the forefront of real estate title search technology

Data Trace Information Services, LLC provides advanced real estate title search technology and support services that enable settlement services companies to quickly access and search hundreds of regional title databases and through a secure standardized interface.

Our system is the largest and most innovative of its kind, delivering title history information, property tax assessment and payment data, document images and property profiles in 34 states across the U.S. Every day, thousands of title insurance underwriters nationwide rely on our real estate title insurance solutions to help them open and close more business, and improve customer service.

Our Vision: Inspiring and Equipping You for Success

In recent years, our vision has become a reality that benefits thousands of title professionals daily: the creation of a standardized title and tax information system that spans the nation and empowers companies to streamline order processing and title production.

We achieved this in part by responding to the industry’s increasingly ambitious productivity goals, including pioneering the automation of large-scale property title and tax databases. Today, we continue to refine and perfect the title examination process--striving to even further reduce the time, effort and expense of conducting and concluding property title searches.

Quality through Collaboration

It should come as no surprise that much of Data Trace’s innovation and success--including our single-application search capability--have sprung from insightful conversations with title insurance customers. This open, ongoing dialogue has positively influenced the development of past and current solutions and services, and is expected to do the same for many years to come.
