Infosys Public Services (IPS), a subsidiary of Infosys, has completed the pilot of a Blockchain solution designed to improve the efficiency, access and security of vital record keeping in Riverside County in California.  

The Blockchain network enables county employees to manage data effectively and securely, while easing access and lowering cost of operations.

“Blockchain technology presents a new opportunity for governments to advance their digital agenda and leapfrog into the next era of secure, citizen-centered services,” said Eric Paternoster, CEO, IPS.

“We are excited about this project with Riverside County Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder Office and appreciate the opportunity to demonstrate how Blockchain can enable the county to become more digital, connected and secure.”

The pilot Blockchain network, developed in collaboration with AWS using Amazon Managed Blockchain, modernizes the once paper-centric operations of the Riverside County Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder Office. The introduction of Blockchain enables the Office to store, recreate and retrieve verifiable digital records, reducing the need for physical storage. The solution will also provide citizens more timely and accurate access to their records.

“As Riverside County’s Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder, our goal is to provide record keeping, record issuance and property valuation in a timely, secure and cost-effective manner,” said Peter Aldana, Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder at County of Riverside. “Adoption of Blockchain technology will greatly advance our Digital Transformation journey towards our goal.”
