Extract Systems Partners With Computer Software Associates, Inc. (CSA) to Provide Redaction Software to County Government

MADISON, WI--(Marketwire - October 8, 2009) - Extract Systems, a leading provider of data indexing and redaction software for local and state government, announced today that it has signed a partnership agreement with Computer Software Associates, Inc. (CSA) to offer FLEX Index Automated Data Capture and ID Shield Redaction Software to CSA's county government customers in ten Plains and Western States.

FLEX Index Automated Data Capture is a powerful productivity tool that uses OCR (optical character recognition) technology combined with rules-based logic to locate and extract data. By automatically capturing data fields such as Grantee, Grantor, Assessor Parcel Number, Reference Number, Full Text Legal Description and Zip Code when processing land records, FLEX Index reduces manual data entry by 65 -75%, providing strong ROI that saves taxpayers money. CSA will offer its customers Extract Systems' ID Shield Automated Redaction Software to protect citizens' sensitive data. Redaction, the permanent removal of personal information, secures privacy information within public records while maintaining access.

Productivity software and legislative compliance software are playing a bigger role in document and records management for local government. CSA considered developing its own automated indexing and redaction software but decided they could offer these critical strategies more quickly and expertly by partnering with Extract. "We realized that by integrating with Extract Systems' proven solutions we could better serve our customers' needs by continuing to add enhancements and functionality to our document management system, Document Pro," said Pat Ryan, President of CSA.

"We're pleased to announce this partnership with CSA," said David Rasmussen, President of Extract systems. "CSA and Extract have deep roots in serving county government with effective software. Plus, CSA shares our customer-centric philosophy."

County Clerks and Recorders across the country have implemented both ID Shield and FLEX Index software to increase productivity and protect citizens from identity theft. These include: Santa Barbara, San Mateo, Contra Costa and Fresno counties in California and Marion and Vigo counties in Indiana.
