Senior Manager Conn McAnally recently hosted an informative ‘Lunch & Learn’ session for the Clarity team, delving into the diverse phases of our work with the Cook County Clerk’s Office. He covered all the various projects, highlighting essential learning experiences and emphasizing the benefits of clear and effective client communication.

Clarity’s partnership with the Cook County Clerk’s Office commenced in 2016, marked by crucial infrastructure support for that year’s elections. Over time, our involvement expanded to encompass a wide array of projects. Some of the notable achievements include:

  • Re-platforming the Website to Drupal: We successfully executed the migration of the Clerk’s website to Drupal 7, ensuring enhanced user experience and streamlined content management.
  • Drupal Upgrades and Ongoing Election Support: Our team diligently performed various Drupal upgrades, from 7 to 8 and then 8 to 9, keeping the website secure, up-to-date, and fully functional. Additionally, we’ve continued to provide support during subsequent elections.
  • Building and Maintaining 30+ .NET Applications: Clarity spearheaded the development and maintenance of more than 30 .NET applications, tailored to meet the Clerk’s specific needs.
  • AWS Hosting Expertise: Leveraging our proficiency in AWS (Amazon Web Services), we optimized hosting solutions for the Cook County Clerk’s Office, ensuring scalability and efficiency.
  • Revamping the Cashiering System via OnBase: Through the integration of custom components via OnBase, we are facilitating a seamless update to the Clerk’s cashiering system, improving overall operations.
