Texas Judiciary Chooses Tyler Technologies To Streamline Electronic Court Filing Statewide

Stocks in this article: TYL

Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced that the Texas Office of Court Administration (OCA) has selected Tyler to provide a unified, statewide electronic filing system that will reduce costs for filers while providing a robust platform for the expansion of electronic filing in Texas, thereby creating efficiencies for court clerks, staff, lawyers and litigants.

Electronic filing (eFiling) allows attorneys and litigants to initiate new cases and file subsequent pleadings and documents to a court via a Web portal. Upon acceptance by the court, the documents can be automatically transmitted to the court’s case management system, as well as to other case participants, providing a completely paperless process. Tyler was selected as part of a competitive bidding process and brings experience successfully managing eFiling in seven other states, including four statewide implementations.

“Tyler’s success providing eFiling services elsewhere gave us confidence that they would provide a solid, reliable and easy-to-use system,” said David Slayton, administrative director of the OCA. “The OCA is continuously looking for ways to increase efficiencies in a cost-effective manner, and through this contract we are able to provide that efficiency at a 40 percent reduction in user fees compared to the current eFiling system. At the same time, Tyler’s eFiling system will improve services to court constituents, including judges, court staff, clerks, attorneys and litigants.”

Court clerks and staff will see their workloads streamlined, while attorneys will benefit from the system’s lower fees and increased functionality. Currently, more than 330 courts in over 50 Texas counties, representing over 81 percent of the state’s population, allow electronic filing. Courts currently using eFiling will be transitioned from the existing system to Tyler’s platform in the next 15 months.

“Tyler is proud to be selected by Texas for this important statewide initiative, which we believe will help transform how the Texas judicial system does business,” said Bruce Graham, president of Tyler’s Courts & Justice Division. “Our experience in other states shows that the benefits of eFiling grow as filer adoption increases. Tyler looks forward to expanding its partnership with Texas courts to deliver cost and workload efficiencies to constituents of the state’s judicial system.”
