About Us

Record Information Services, Inc.'s mission is to provide our customers with the most current and accurate public record data in Illinois.

Our History

Record Information Services, Inc. was founded in 1993 with the simple concept of delivering timely and complete public record data through paper reports. Our first clients mainly included the banking industry, legal services, and credit and collection services. With the evolution of the internet, our data offerings saw phenomenal growth, and our customer diversity grew as well. We currently offer 18 different Public Record Databases through our online portals, which cater to the business and consumer community alike. Our mission is to deliver low-cost public record data to businesses, government entities, not-for-profits, and consumers, to help their business grow. Our growth strategy includes continuing to develop new and innovative portals of data access using BIG DATA strategies and concepts.

  • Our organization has been working with Record Information Services for over 20 years. They provide us with a number of court data related services that are vital to our business needs. We know we can always count on RIS for consistent, timely service of the highest quality. Due to changing market conditions we have had to ask RIS to make many changes to the data that we request and RIS has always come through for us and provided us exactly what we need. Jeff Metcalf and his team provide our staff with an excellent level of customer service and they always have time for us. We do not look at RIS as a vendor but rather as a valued business partner.
