About Us

For the Record Group is a fast growing, global business with operations in 65 countries and 50 US states. The digital solutions and services provided by our Companies assist Courts around the world to capture, distribute and maintain court recordings. We are currently experiencing incredible global growth (particularly in the US), with our latest industry-leading technologies driving digital transformation in the justice system.

Our global group of companies, including Auscript, has served courts for almost 100 years. Today, we boast over 27,000 installations, across 62 countries. Our customers include Massachusetts Trial Courts, Irish Courts Services, United States Federal Court, International Criminal Court, New York State Courts, Federal Court of Australia and High Court of Australia.

Our Tech and Tools

We host our infrastructure on AWS and Azure and use IaC to define it (Terraform, CloudFormation). For the most part our backend services are deployed as containers (ECS, Kubernetes) and are written in TypeScript and Node.js. You'll also find a few services which use Python, C#, and Java, as well as some serverless deployments.

For the frontend of our application, we've built a responsive and accessible SPA with Angular 9 (Webpack, PostCSS) which is deployed and hosted on a CDN. Microsoft Power Platform is used for rapid development and deployment.

Everything we build has several levels of automated testing and gets released through our CI/CD pipeline (Jenkins).
