Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced that California’s Superior Court of Merced County has selected Tyler’s Odyssey ® court case management system to modernize the Superior Court’s operations and provide the judicial officers, court personnel and all court customers improved access to court information.
Odyssey’s case management and document management solutions will be used throughout the Merced Superior Court. The agreement also includes financial management, public access, and SessionWorks ® Judge and Clerk editions to aid in courtroom efficiency. The court will also use Odyssey File & Serve for simplified e-filing (electronic filing).
“The court is excited about this project,” said Judge Brian McCabe, Presiding Judge of the Superior Court of Merced County. “The Tyler Odyssey system will bring us into the 21st century and allow court staff to perform their jobs more efficiently. We always strive to find new technologies that will provide the public improved access to justice.”
The Merced Superior Court is the first to procure a case management system using the Master Services Agreement (MSA) that gives California’s 58 Superior Courts the ability to purchase Tyler’s Odyssey integrated court case management system at pre-negotiated terms, conditions and pricing outlined in the MSA. Purchasing through this MSA will save courts time and money.The MSA was developed by a group of IT leaders and court managers within the California judicial system as a way for the state’s Superior Courts to efficiently purchase a case management system without the cost and inconvenience of conducting their own request for proposal (RFP) process. Merced will be the third California Superior Court to successfully contract with Tyler after the Judicial Council’s decision to stop deployment of the California Case Management System (CCMS) early last year. Merced follows the Superior Courts of Kings and San Luis Obispo counties in joining the Tyler community; both courts conducted their own individual procurements and independently selected Tyler.
