Instead of the intimidating task of barcoding and physically storing almost 200 years worth of court and land transaction paperwork, a New York county administration chose to invest in a Laserfiche document processing system. In the end it is projected they will save nearly $5.5 million on document management. Fierce Content Management brought this news to us in their article, “County clerk drives down records management costs with mobile document services.”

Courtroom paperwork that used to take days to process is now done on the fly and typically available to judges and attorneys by day’s end. Closed cases are accessed instantly on laptops and mobile devices via an online portal.

Any records management system requires a system of indexing to create findability. We know that indexing against a strong, standards-based taxonomy can ensure comprehensive search results. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ISO/ANSI/NISO compliant taxonomies to produce comprehensive results.
