Wednesday, May 11, 2016
The Honorable Harvey Ruvin (Miami-Dade) has been recognized by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce for outstanding use of technology as an award finalist.
“On behalf of 1,200 employees of our office, I am honored to receive this recognition,” said Harvey Ruvin, Miami-Dade County Clerk of Courts.
Since Ruvin’s election as Clerk of Courts, the organization’s vision has been based upon his technology mantra of serving the public “online rather than in line,” empowering his staff to act as change agents, seeking opportunities to introduce and embrace electronic business process transformation where needed most.
The organization was challenged to automate the office’s paper-intensive workflows as custodian of Miami-Dade’s court, property, and county commission records to promote access, transparency and convenience for the public and generate operational efficiencies in order to save taxpayer’s money. During his tenure, mostly by progressively applying cutting-edge technology, the Clerk’s office has been able to reduce staffing by 20 percent, even in the face of increasing workloads.
