CLERICUS is a Florida-based case maintenance system developed exclusively for Florida Clerks by Florida Clerks.  CLERICUS, as the newest version of the court case system which is currently implemented in thirty-five counties in the state of Florida, will provide a state-of-art upgrade to the existing case maintenance applications supported by the FCCC Services Group (FCCCSG).

CLERICUS is developed using Microsoft .Net framework and utilizes a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA).  This design allows for tighter integration among the various programs as well as allowing other applications to be developed by third parties that utilize the common functionality.
