About Mentis Technology

Founded in 2000 by patent-holding software designers, our solutions are now in use in hundreds of county court, land records, and secretary of state offices nationwide, including ten of the largest counties in the country. Mentis corporate headquarters is located in the Denver Tech Center.

Company Vision

We’ve responded to the need of county governments to process, index and redact an escalating backlog of recorded documents with fewer staff resources. Mentis continues to expand its solutions into such mission-critical areas as

  • Legal research
  • Claims processing
  • In-courtroom processing
  • Medical records
  • Mortgage loan and foreclosure filings

As proven with the development of aiSMARTBENCH®, our methodology allows us to quickly deliver on a working proof-of-concept in real-world scenarios. Our expert systems can be applied to a number of challenges in industries overwhelmed with paper and the proliferation of information.

Mentis has a history of delivering rapid, “go-live” projects that capitalize on our ability to mine and digitize content and provide a configurable interface adapted to how the user works naturally.
