Clerk’s office one of four government agencies to win award
WEST PALM BEACH, FL (October 22, 2015) – The Clerk & Comptroller, Palm Beach County recently received the national “Rookie of the Year Award” from Corporation Service Company for leadership in eRecording.
eRecording is the secure electronic submission of real estate and other documents to the Clerk & Comptroller’s office for recording into the official records of Palm Beach County – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This process eliminates the need to mail or hand deliver documents to the courthouse and allows title companies and attorneys to submit their documents through third-party vendors.
Since the launch of the program:
- More than 56 percent of all documents received from submitters have been electronically processed
- More than 109,000 documents have been eRecorded since 2014
“As Clerk, I am dedicated to saving time and money for our customers. The launch of our eRecording program is a major benefit to the entire community and one I am very proud of,” said Clerk Sharon Bock.
