We remove the constraints of time and place for public service agencies and the people they serve.

Serving the public demands more from government agencies than ever before. Survive and thrive with faster access to better information.

GovLink

Our team has raised the level of connectivity, effectiveness and confidence among those who rely on the solutions we provide in public service and in other industry settings. In early 2020, we recognized the need to formalize our work so public service agencies could benefit more easily.

 

GovLink is the combination of our acumen, experience and work products specifically deployed for public service agencies like Offices of The Attorney General and Child Support Enforcement (IV-D). In other words, GovLink exists to remove the constraints of time and place for public service agencies.

 

For agencies that have invested in case management systems, litigation support applications and document management solutions, GovLink can connect those pieces with courts and other agencies.

 

For agencies that do not yet have the benefit of their own solution, GovLink can provide filing, research, access and communication tools that are far superior to a generalized solution provided for the litigation community at large or one borrowed from another agency.

Made to fit people and processes

Connects existing systems

Zero software maintenance

Continuous improvements

PeachCourt

Prior to 2014, only a small number of courts in Georgia were interested in – let alone able to – accept electronically filed case proceedings. Between 2014 and 2018, we brought more than 200 trial courts into the modern era of electronic filing.

 

The success of the Georgia electronic filing program we created, known as PeachCourt, hinged as much on building trust and unearthing deeply buried expectations as on developing APIs and mapping data structures. We earned an exclusive endorsement from and partnership with the Council of Superior Court Clerks of Georgia and contributes significantly to the Supreme Court of Georgia’s Standing Committee on Technology and other rule-making groups.

 

We have engineered connections with a variety of court case management systems (seven and counting), many of which had never considered an integration of this scale. Like the interpersonal connections described above, we invest great effort to ensure that every connection remains beneficial to all involved.

 

The Georgia State Legislature mandated civil eFiling beginning in 2019. Lawmakers were confident in passing this legislation because GreenCourt had already raised the level of collaboration– personal and technical – across the entire state.

 

County populations in “The PeachCourt Family” range from fewer than 2,000 to more than 1 million. Court case volumes range from fewer than 100 new cases per year to several hundred new cases per day.

Milestones

  1. PeachCourt Debuts

    Prior to 2014, only a small number of courts in Georgia were interested in – let alone able to – accept electronically filed case proceedings. GreenCourt set out to bring more than 200 trial courts into the modern era of electronic filing.

  2. PeachCourt for Each Court

    In 2015, GreenCourt began engineering connections with a wide variety of court case management systems (seven and counting), many of which had never considered an integration of this scale.

    Of note is the diversity of the counties and courts that chose to join “The PeachCourt Family.” County populations range from fewer than 2,000 to more than 1 million. Court case volumes range from fewer than 100 new cases per year to several hundred new cases per day. GreenCourt has never refused to integrate with any system and has never required an agency or court to upgrade or replace an existing system.

  3. Criminal Justice Reform

    In addition to building Georgia’s civil eFiling structure from the ground up, GreenCourt has invested in several initiatives that benefit state-wide programs. GreenCourt’s team invests legal, policy, financial and technical expertise to solve problems, often in situations that traditional vendors flee for fear of disruptingtheir business plans.

    In 2016, more than a dozen criminal justice partner agencies across Georgia began a criminal case eFiling, eAccess and data exchange program. GreenCourt was one of several service providers involved in the pilot and emerged as the leader in terms of expertise, engineering acumen and speed-to-market.

  4. Alternative Dispute Resolution

    In 2017, Georgia’s 9th Judicial Administrative District asked GreenCourt to develop a proof of concept to assist the Office of Alternative Dispute Resolution. A small group of mediators uses the proof of concept system to electronically transmit mediation certificates to the Clerk’s Office, Judge’s Office, and District ADR Office.

  5. Single Sign-On

    In 2018, Georgia’s Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) invited all electronic filing service providers to participate in a single sign-on initiative. To date, GreenCourt is the only provider to have accepted the AOC’s challenge. The outcome of GreenCourt’s work is a first-of-its-kind integration among the State Bar of Georgia’s membership system, the AOC’s Judicial Gateway and PeachCourt.

  6. Mandatory Statewide eFiling in Georgia

    The Georgia State Legislature chose to mandate that all civil case proceedings filed by an attorney be filed electronically beginning in 2019. Lawmakers were confident in passing this legislation because GreenCourt had already raised the level of collaboration– personal and technical – across the entire state.

    Of note is the diversity of the counties and courts that chose to join “The PeachCourt Family.” County populations range from fewer than 2,000 to more than 1 million. Court case volumes range from fewer than 100 new cases per year to several hundred new cases per day. GreenCourt has never refused to integrate with any system and has never required an agency or court to upgrade or replace an existing system.

  7. GovLink Debuts

    Based on the success of the PeachCourt program in Georgia and hastened by the COVID-19 pandemic, GreenCourt debuted GovLink in 2020.

    GovLink is a platform for connecting the “unconnectable” across public service agencies. People, processes and systems that hold critical information can be linked in helpful and safe ways to benefit everyone involved.
