She lives and breathes all things public records, as she is our go-to-gal for all of our PeopleMap product demonstrations and trainings. PeopleMap is a tool that quickly determines relevant information about people and their connections. It’s a deep cross-referencing and smart technology that enables researchers to find relationships between people, assets and other public records. Here is more about it from our expert, Mary Anne.
“Like WestlawNext, PeopleMap is truly a next generation product that is unmatched in the industry with its exclusive content including Experian credit header data, pre-foreclosure records, utility records and dockets. Customers love the easy to use interface! One of the most exciting features is the exclusive interactive mapping function. It provides a visual relationship between the individual being searched and how public records will associate with that person. It also maps out how those records tie to other individuals. Another advantage of PeopleMap is the way the reports provide not only summary information regarding the record returned, but also a quick link within the report to robust full records. All of these features are included within a single report.”
“What makes me most passionate about PeopleMap is the powerful way that this product is being used by our customers. A new customer recently shared with me that a live search that we did on PeopleMap during one of our demonstrations was used to save a young woman’s life. The pro bono client was the victim of a stalker. We took the license plate of a vehicle that she feared belonged to the stalker, ran it through our DMV records, found the vehicle and then linked to the PeopleMap Report through the minor link on the left pane of the search screen to locate and identify the stalker. We did this in a matter of minutes. Results and use cases like this fuel my passion for this product.”
