Press Release · June 2, 2020 · Minneapolis
Pushpin announced today that it had completed a parcel change detection project for Payne County, Oklahoma. Pushpin analyzed the county's 34,351 parcels in 4 weeks. Pushpin found that 3,713 parcels (11%) had property changes between 2017 and 2020. Property changes included additions, construction, decks, flatwork, garages, new homes, pools, and sheds. Pushpin estimated an assessed value increase of $150,970,000 associated with the changes.
Pushpin is currently executing a record number of change detection projects for cities and counties. Municipalities are leveraging Pushpin's platform to remain productive while many employees are working remotely due to stay-at-home advisories. Pushpin leverages aerial imagery to perform its analysis, so assessors and their staff can review results and update property records without having to go into the office or visit properties in person.
"Our experience with Pushpin has been exceptional," said James Cowan, Payne County Assessor. "From our test run a few months ago to our recently completed full county project, Randy and his team at Pushpin have been a joy to work with. The work was completed ahead of schedule and fit our budget nicely. We will definitely be working with Pushpin on future projects."
"We enjoy working with tech-forward customers like James Cowan in Payne County. We were delighted to help the assessment office continue operating under the current work and travel restrictions," said Randy Milbert, President, Pushpin. "We are looking forward to working on future projects with Payne County and others within Oklahoma."
