Hood County, Texas recently licensed aiSMARTBENCH® for their judges, clerks and court coordinators.
“There are several reasons why we chose aiSMARTBENCH,” said Hood County judge Darrell Cockerham, “First, it will be beneficial to the County Clerk’s office, helping them to be more productive. Second, we need to move away from all of the paper we create for Probate and Guardianship cases. Currently I review the paper files that are delivered to my office. There have been times when a file goes missing during the exchange between our offices. Using aiSMARTBENCH will eliminate that problem.
“I also like the idea of being able to sign documents while out of the county. Often there are time-sensitive documents that need to be signed…right now! This will allow me to sign them even while at a judicial conference. We live in a modern electronic world and there is a need to move the county in that direction.”
