Today we've been working on the details of our plan to implement electronic recording. We've thoroughly tested the software on a practice database, but until we actually load it onto our main system and start using it, we really won't know the issues that we will have to resolve. Over the next few weeks we will begin experimenting. Our intent is to proceed slowly and methodically and we will use the blog to keep everyone posted. Just out of curiousity, I searched the phrase "electronic document recording" in Google and found a large number of press releases posted by counties across the country (Wisconsin, California, Washington, Florida, for example) announcing their entry into the world of electronic recording. Each of them seemed to say that electronic recording will "improve the operational efficiency and better serve our customers." That sound pretty good to me.
