Cotecna launches Atlas®, a pioneering land and property tax solution

Cotecna Inspection S.A. is pleased to announce the launch of Atlas®, a solution designed to manage the property tax system on behalf of local governments. The service is based on cutting-edge technology and helps them boost their property tax revenue in a cost-effective manner.

Property tax is a valuable source of revenue for governments, yet they often lack the resources to fully benefit from it. Atlas® is a “one-stop-shop” which provides a comprehensive management support across the entire process from identifying and recording all properties via satellite imagery, to implementing targeted enforcement measures in line with local legislations.

Sébastien Dannaud, CEO, Cotecna Inspection S.A., comments: “Atlas is a modular and scalable solution that offers governments flexible processes, access to experienced professionals, advanced technology and stable funding. It is unique in that it brings immediate and tangible benefits to both the government and the taxpayer.” 

The benefits of Atlas® include:

  • Increase in revenue through fair property valuation and optimised tax collection
  • Revenue projection and budgeting based on reliable information
  • High level of compliance and efficient enforcement mechanism
  • Enhanced public awareness about the importance of property tax

This new offering confirms Cotecna’s ambition to diversify its portfolio of services aimed at government agencies and boasting the latest technology. The company which recently acquired a leading Indian laboratory, Shiva Analyticals, aims to increase its geographical coverage in key regions and expand its reach through organic growth and acquisitions.
