|Yulee, FL – July 9, 2012 - John Crawford, Nassau County Clerk of Court, is pleased to announce that the Nassau County Clerk of Court’s office has successfully installed its new case maintenance system, CLERICUS, this week.
The installation of this new software is a significant upgrade for the office, which anticipates increased efficiencies, better workflow, and a move toward a paperless office environment.
“Installing this innovative software will be a huge asset to the Clerk’s office, and will also benefit the citizens of Nassau County,” Crawford said. “Although our staff will have to get acquainted with the new software, we believe we will be better equipped to serve the people with this upgrade to CLERICUS.”
The new case maintenance system speeds up many processes that were formerly manual and now can be automated or generated much easier. Preparing appeals or creating ad hoc reports are much less time consuming with the new software.
The comprehensive system will also provide a seamless connection to the Florida Courts eFiling Portal, helping to eliminate the need for paper filings.
“It’s clear that as we continue to deal with tighter budgets and an increasing case workload, a paperless court system is the wave of the future,” Crawford said. “With CLERICUS now installed, the Nassau Clerk’s office will be better suited to deal with these challenges.”
CLERICUS utilizes cutting edge technology and complies with Florida Statutes and both local and statewide reporting requirements. CLERICUS is the only Florida-based case maintenance system that is developed for the Clerks by the Clerks.
