FAQ 10 – How does the Cuyahoga Land Bank use technology?

In this FAQ video, Cuyahoga Land Bank Director of IT and Research Michael Schramm explain how the Cuyahoga Land Bank uses technology. The Cuyahoga Land Bank has an in-house database called the Property Profile System that contains current information on all properties in its inventory.  This system is linked to www.cuyahogalandbank.org and accessible to the public.  Contractors also have access to this system so that they can log in, fill out a form, submit pictures and verify they have completed their job.  The Cuyahoga Land Bank also works with the Case Western Reserve University Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development and their data system – NEO CANDO – in order to monitor foreclosures, property sales, demolitions, sheriff’s sales and other characteristics.  Because of this tracking, we have a better idea of anticipating which properties will be coming into our Land Bank inventory.
