Bullock County Probate Judge’s office is part of a five county pilot program that is having new title software installed. The title software is used for issuing new vehicle titles, replacement titles, salvage and rebuilt titles, manufactured home titles and anything else that is titled in the State of Alabama.

The new software was developed by the Center for Advanced Public Safety (CAPS) which is a part of the University of Alabama and is located in Tuscaloosa, AL.

Paul Harrison, who works with CAPS, said the new software is written in a programming language called C-sharp.net. He said the new software is replacing the old system that was called Electronic Title Application Processing System (ETAPS). ETAPS would only work with Internet Explorer.

CAPS will work with Internet Explorer and Google Chrome Browser. Harrison said when comparing the old software to the new software, it’s like the difference in night and day. The system can be easily customized.

Lisa Blankenship with the Alabama Department of Revenue, said the new system is more user friendly.

The employees should like the new system and find it easier to use. She said all counties will be eventually converted to the new system and then they will convert car dealerships and financial institutions. Bruce Brashier with Syscon IT was also on site assisting with the transition.
