Case Study: Improving citizen engagement through a cloud-based land records management system

Josh LaRussa is the Register of Deeds Clerk for Chester County, South Carolina. He runs a lean operation and is the only county employee who registers deeds, although he has cross-trained others to cover for him in case he is unavailable. About two years ago, Avenu’s Clearview GRIDS software system started to make Josh’s job easier. GRIDS is a cloud-based record-indexing solution that delivers functionality and peace of mind to those responsible for maintaining all current and historic land records for a county.

Learn what life was like for the Chester County Clerk’s Office before Clearview GRIDS, and how this solution transformed their office.

Following the transformation, Josh LaRussa stated, “Our citizens are happy with the convenience of being able to search online which has saved our staff considerable time and effort.”

Avenu Insights & Analytics Announces Its Statewide Implementation for South Carolina Family Courts

The effort was spearheaded by the South Carolina Family Courts, in coordination with the South Carolina Department of Social Services, to modernize its platform and bring better information sharing, centralized data sources, and add greater efficiencies across all county courts.

“Our Family Court System had two major motivating factors to move towards a statewide system,” stated Michael Leach, State Director with the South Carolina Department of Social Services. “First was to provide better access to more accurate case information to the Judges, Court staff, the bar, and to our constituents. The second factor is that each of our 46 counties will have system support, maintenance and upgrades, regardless of their size or budget.”

Avenu is a leading provider of court and justice software applications and is accustomed to providing county, state, and Federal implementations to include the Office of the United States Courts. The company has noticed a significant trend towards statewide implementations which benefit by having economies of scale for the upgraded technology.

“Avenu is excited to deploy another statewide solution,” shared Paul Colangelo. “South Carolina is one of our forward-thinking clients who decided to move to a single platform for case management system statewide. The benefits of this are enormous and include having a single source of truth in the data along with accelerated workflows for more streamlined operations.”
