Case Study - Clerk of the Circuit Court Alachua County, Florida

The Clerk of the Circuit Court required assistance migrating from an IBM 4381 mainframe to an AS 400 system. The migration carried existing software from one platform to another with no changes in the software. While this relieved the burden of maintaining the IBM 4381, the clerk believed changes should be made in the software to reflect current office needs.

Andrew Z. Adkins, III was retained to perform a detailed workflow study of the information needs in the clerk’s office. The study, prepared in flow chart and text format, detailed the flow of documentation as it comes across the front counter, through the clerk’s office, courts and judges, and to file archive. This study was the prelude to developing detailed software requirements for a new software automation system.

The second task performed was to develop detailed specifications and workflow requirements for installing an imaging system for the Official Records department. This project involved preparing a Request for Proposal, delivering to imaging systems integrators capable of handling the project, and helping negotiate the final vendor selection.
