Powerful web-based application enables assessors to easily identify data inconsistencies and valuation errors
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah—2023 IAAO Annual Conference—Esri Canada today announced the launch of Assessment Analyst ValueIT, a powerful visualization and analytic application that revolutionizes property assessment by providing clarity and control over the accuracy of assessment values. With AA ValueIT, assessors can confidently determine if assessments meet local or state standards by leveraging the full potential of computer-assisted mass appraisal (CAMA) data within a geographic information system (GIS) environment. The application expands the capabilities of Assessment Analyst®, Esri Canada’s powerful software suite that enhances assessments by geo-enabling property data.
Accurate property assessment values are crucial for ensuring fair taxation and maintaining trust in the assessment process. However, identifying inconsistencies and errors in property valuations has been a persistent challenge. AA ValueIT addresses this issue head-on by offering advanced visualization and analytic tools that enable assessors to pinpoint data inconsistencies and valuation errors with ease.
“We’re excited to introduce AA ValueIT, a game-changer in the property assessment industry,” said Brian Smith, industry and product manager, Assessment at Esri Canada. “This application provides assessors with the necessary tools to visualize, analyze and validate assessment values, helping them make informed decisions and achieve fair and accurate property assessments. With AA ValueIT, assessors can now take control of the assessment process like never before.”

Enhanced Compliance: By using GIS-based data visualization, AA ValueIT swiftly identifies geographical areas that meet local or state appraisal standards. This feature ensures assessors adhere to regulatory requirements.
