In today's world, change moves at a breakneck pace. To survive, you must keep up. To be truly successful, however, you must stay ahead of the curve … anticipating needs, innovating to meet those needs, and then driving the change.
Communications mogul Rupert Murdoch captured this concept perfectly when he famously noted: "The world is changing very fast. Big will not beat small anymore. It will be the fast beating the slow."
FY 2017 marks another successful year for the Georgia Superior Court Clerks' Cooperative Authority, and this quote highlights much of the reason why. Of course, the Authority would not exist without the paradigm-shifting vision of our founders and the continued support and collaboration of Georgia's 159 clerks of Superior Court. But just as critical to our success this past fiscal year and for the past two decades has been a continuing commitment to streamlining our operations, delivering solid results, providing unmatched customer service, and, perhaps most important in today's fast-paced, competitive environment, remaining focused on innovation and at the forefront of technology. Anticipating and meeting the evolving needs of Superior Court clerks and providing them with the tools to help them not just remain relevant but be successful is our overarching vision and guides every aspect of our business.
From the beginning and rooted to its core, innovation, collaboration and vision have defined the Authority. Although the culture remains the same, the GSCCCA is a very different organization today than the one that opened its doors in 1995. Since its establishment, the Authority has not only fulfilled its original purpose of establishing a statewide system for the indexing of UCC documents, but has successfully developed and implemented, at no cost to the state, a variety of additional projects. Effective collaboration with other state agencies and numerous not-for-profit groups for the benefit of the State of Georgia and its citizens has become one of the hallmarks of the Authority's success and why it is respected both locally and nationally for its progressive, innovative and effective approach to problem solving.
For over two decades, the Authority has been an innovator within the public records arena and has led the State of Georgia to the forefront of court technology. Using a mix of old-fashioned cooperation and state-of-the-art technology, the GSCCCA has taken abstract ideas, that many believed were not possible, to the concrete world of implementation, and in so doing, has changed the way many do business and made life easier for those accessing real estate records, financing statements, civil and criminal case data, and other legal documents.
