National Data Collective launches “Shift” an exclusive a la mode TOTAL integration tool

Monday, February 2, 2015

February 2, 2015 San Diego, CA — Today, NDC (National Data Collective), a leading national provider of property data for real estate professionals, has released a new and improved export tool for a la mode customers only called Shift.

Shift allows NDC users to export NDC’s highly-rated collective property data directly into a la mode’s industry leading form filling software with just a push of a button. The tool is compatible with the legacy WinTOTAL system, TOTAL 2013, and the upcoming release of the next-generation TOTAL Titan.

“We’re excited to give our customers access to NDC’s national data,” said Sean Shiplet, Chief Operating Officer at a la mode.  “Through our API integration, customers will have access to the critical information they need, from plat maps to property characteristics, to comp-specific Digital Workfile notes that other appraisers have opted to share.  Accurate and timely data is more critical than ever and NDC delivers that with flying colors.”

The new NDC Shift will save appraisers time, avoid having to pay to have reports typed, reduce potential errors from copying and pasting, and best of all, save money due to NDC’s extremely affordable pricing and subscription options. “By integrating NDC Data’s proprietary subject and comp search features with a la mode’s industry leading form filling software, we are jointly arming the appraisal community with the very best tools available to reduce risk and increase productivity,” said Brian Trotier, NDC’s Chief Operating Officer.  “The Comps Dashboard developed by a la mode provides an excellent platform for appraisers to access and integrate quality property data from NDC into a la mode’s cutting edge appraisal software at a very reasonable cost.  We deliver that data and a la mode delivers the proper context for it.  It’s a superb combination for any appraiser.”

a la mode is the nation’s dominant appraisal technology provider, with its TOTAL family of form filling products used by more appraisers in the United States than all other competing systems combined. 

NDC offers a subscription-based data service to appraisers using data from over 130 million properties in all 50 states, with full property profiles, assessor records, deed history, and comparables data.  Its products are available on desktop and mobile platforms, with an advanced user interface designed around appraiser efficiency.  Foreclosure activity is also available, along with flood information, linked deed histories, and more.  Customizable packages are available in monthly or annual subscriptions.

NDC will be offering low unpublished introductory pricing to any current a la mode TOTAL user who has not used NDC before. Appraisers should call NDC at 1-800-964-2374 if they have questions or wish to sign up. Alternatively you can visit to sign up for a free 3 day trial.
