Court goes paperless, sets standard for nation

May 13th, 2014 | Posted by Kevin Corley in Workflow

The Jefferson County, Kentucky, circuit courtroom system has invested in significant IT solutions to bring its operations into the 21st century and optimize its processes through document management software and advanced audio-visual communications. Setting a strong standard for other courtrooms across the nation to aspire to, these changes focus on the day-to-day activities of the courts, as well as expediting trials to ensure a swift and productive judicial system.

According to The Lane Report, the court now takes audio-visual recordings of ever proceeding to supplement its records, while incorporating video testimonies and other paperless processes with its proceedings.

"We are building the courtroom of the future to adapt to the juries of the future," Patrick Michael, a partner with the Louisville office of Dinsmore and Shohl, and JCUP's chief  executive officer, told the news source. "Millennials are used to seeing and using multiple streams of information at once. They expect rich information and can process it intelligently – this system speaks to the Millennial generation's needs for learning and listening. Besides that, this is a big step in moving to a paperless legal system with this project."

The focus on paperless operations for any branch of local government isn't complete without the deployment of paper conversion services to take its documents and records to digital formats as well. Courtrooms, administrative branches and other areas of leadership can optimize their workflow and efficiency and ensure they are properly handling documents in modern fashion with the right equipment and services to assist them. For many, this will provide significant savings and the cost of paper and related supplies are cut, and efficiency is enhanced to handle matters, including budget strategies, more effectively.
