Market Drive™ comes in 3 editions for doing assessment work and 2 editions for view-only access to property records.
The 3 editions meant for doing assessment work are:
Large Municipal Edition – Best for large municipalities with their own assessment staff.
Professional Edition – Best for contract assessment firms that do assessment work for many municipalities.
Small Municipal Edition – Best for smaller municipalities who want to maintain and control their property records in a single, stable comprehensive software package and share that license with their current assessor, thus ensuring no loss of data when they switch from one assessor to another.
The small municipal edition can also be purchased by assessors who do a few small municipalities that do not already have their own CAMA software. Sometimes purchasing this edition can be less expensive than the professional edition. In addition, purchasing the software for one small municipality can be great way to get started with Market Drive™.
All editions have everything an assessor needs to get the job done right. The following chart shows the difference in features between these three editions:

Website Access – Information can also be made available to the public via www.assessordata.org and www.assessordata.com. The Market DriveTM software can send data directly to these sites. Basic web publishing is included with all editions. Enhanced web publishing requires an annual fee.
