Ascend Supports the Property Life Cycle
Ascend provides functionality that automates all other workflow and business processes associated with property taxation. When real property is segregated or merged, or a personal property account is opened, Ascend assigns a unique identifier and records all relevant information, from the multiplicity of owners and addresses to detailed legal descriptions. Due to its object-oriented and relational design, there is no limit to the number of owners, addresses, or the size of legal descriptions that Ascend can accommodate. New accounts created in Ascend can be “picked up” by a CAMA system where characteristics are recorded and the property is appraised. Meanwhile, exemptions, if applicable, are added and applications for “special use” or other property designations are recorded. Special assessments can likewise be assigned if the property qualifies for such designation.
