Dallas Business Journal recognizes Carter for leadership in Dallas-Fort Worth technology community.
IRVING, TEXAS (Sept. 12, 2017) – File & ServeXpress CEO Tammy Carter has been named to the Dallas Business Journal 2017 Women in Technology Awards list. The annual awards honor 25 female technology leaders in North Texas.
Now in its fourth year, the Dallas Business Journal's Women in Technology Awards recognizes women in the North Texas business community that lead technological innovation across a multitude of industries. Honorees are selected from North Texas executives who: lead established or startup technology companies, have leadership roles in technology or science in a technology company; or are an IT/technology research leader in a non-tech organization.
When Carter was named the CEO in late 2016, she became the first female CEO in the legal eFiling industry. However, she is no stranger to the legal technology industry, having founded CaseFileXpress in 2002. At that time, she was pioneering a new space with a vision that eFiling could be a game-changer for how law firms and courts communicated. Now, 15 years later, her impact is clearly visible nationally.
Her vision for bringing technology to the process of filing documents for courts and law firms has had a significant impact on those law firms and courts that saw the vision as well. Before eFiling implementations, courts and law firms racked up millions of dollars for paper storage alone. Some courts, such as those dealing with Asbestos cases, had multi-story buildings filled with paper. Carter has helped shepherd the legal industry through this automation transformation. As a leader in this technology and with 75 million documents in the File & ServeXpress system today, Carter has helped save taxpayers, courts, and law firms millions of dollars.
The Dallas Business Journal 2017 Women in Technology Awards will be held on Tuesday, October 3, at the Westin Galleria in Dallas.
