spreadsheet outlining projected cost savings for a court system transitioning to remote signing of documents over a three-year period:
|Cost Category||Current Cost||Estimated Savings with Remote Signing||Annual Savings||3-Year Savings|
|Travel expenses||$500 per case||$0 per case||$500 x number of cases per year||$500 x number of cases per year x 3|
|Printing and mailing costs||$100 per case||$0 per case||$100 x number of cases per year||$100 x number of cases per year x 3|
|Staff time handling paperwork||$50 per hour||Reduced need for staff||$50 x number of hours saved per year||$50 x number of hours saved per year x 3|
|Total savings per case||$650||$650||$650 x number of cases per year||$650 x number of cases per year x 3|
Note: These cost estimates are purely hypothetical and will vary depending on the specific needs and circumstances of a given court system. It's also important to consider that the cost savings from remote signing may change over time as the court system becomes more efficient and adapts to the new process.
In addition to the cost savings listed above, it's worth considering other potential benefits of remote signing, such as increased accessibility for individuals with disabilities or living in rural areas, and increased security and integrity of the legal process.
