Our History

The NET Data Corporation was established by David Graves on June 1, 1983 with two customers, Hopkins County Tax office and Hopkins County Appraisal District. A programmer by trade, David originally programmed many of the applications we use today. Financial Management, Records Indexing, Voter Registration, and Property Tax Billing and Collection were the first of the 16 software applications that are currently in use.

David Graves laid the foundation on what NET Data is based on: Quality Product. Quality Customer Service.

In 1984, NET Data started to grow and other software applications were developed by David, including Voter Registration and Jury Selection applications. Although NET Data had several software applications available it wasn't until 1987 that the company became a recognized competitor and contender in the County Government software industry.

Continuing the family legacy, Dave Graves, named President of NET Data in January, joined the NET Data team as a Hardware Support Representative in 2005. In the summer of 2006, realizing a need for added services in the Justice of the Peace collection arena, GHS, Ltd. was established. Dave was named Director of Operations of GHS, Ltd. (Graves Humphries Stahl, Limited). In less than 10 years Dave and his GHS team have acquired more than 200 JP Court customers. While delivering new ideas and promoting growth, Dave will continue to focus on what’s important; customer relationships, quality product and exceptional customer service.

Scott Stahl accepted the role as Vice President in 1985. Another programmer by trade, he developed the Motor Vehicle, Law Enforcement, Hot Check, Parks and Wildlife software applications as well as enhanced other existing applications such as the Justice of the Peace application. He has been a part of the NET Data team almost from the beginning and has strived to stay ahead of the software technology game producing applications that work more efficiently to serve customers better and save taxpayers money.
