Infosys Public Services or IPS, a US-based subsidiary of Infosys, completed the pilot of a blockchain solution to improve the access, efficiency, and security of vital recordkeeping in Riverside County, California. The blockchain solution will help county employees to manage data securely and effectively while enabling easy access and lowering the cost of operations.
Eric Paternoster, CEO, Infosys Public Services, says that Blockchain technology presents a new opportunity for governments to advance their digital agenda and jump into the next era of secure, citizen-centered services. He added that they are thrilled about this project with Riverside County Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder Office and appreciate the chance to demonstrate how blockchain can enable the County to become more secure, connected, and digital.
The Infosys Public Services blockchain network, developed in partnership with Amazon Web Services, Inc. using Amazon Managed Blockchain, helps in the modernization of the once paper-centric operations of the Riverside County Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder Office. The introduction of blockchain technology will help the Office store, recreate, and retrieve verifiable digital records, reducing the need for physical storage.
Peter Aldana, who is the Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder at the County of Riverside, noted that As Riverside County’s Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder, they aim to provide recordkeeping, record issuance, and property valuation in a secure, timely, and cost-effective manner. He also said that Adopting blockchain technology will significantly advance their digital transformation journey towards achieving their goal.
Infosys Blockchain network offers the County the ability to reduce costs associated with the physical storage of the official records. Currently, at Riverside County, all vital records requests are fulfilled through issuing of physical paper certificates. Adopting the Infosys Blockchain Network will help citizens obtain vital digital records securely within minutes and achieve higher efficiency within the office operations. Infosys Public Services and AWS will continue working with the County to assess how blockchain technology can benefit more departments and processes, increase efficiency and effectiveness of public services while minimizing the cost of operations.
