Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced that the Superior Court of California, County of Fresno, has selected Tyler’s Odyssey ® court case management system to replace the court’s two existing legacy case management systems into a single solution, thus streamlining the court’s overall judicial processes.
The Fresno Superior Court sought a modern, efficient, reliable, economical and proven case management solution that would handle all case types. As a comprehensive court management system, Odyssey helps eliminate duplicate data entry and simplifies access to relevant case data for judges and other court operational staff. By streamlining processes and enabling instant access to pertinent case data, the Superior Court can more effectively serve the residents and judicial community of Fresno County.
“Not only will Tyler’s solution take us from two very diverse, cumbersome case management systems to a robust, highly efficient and integrated system, in today’s environment of reduced funding and shrinking staff resources we are certain Odyssey will be a welcome relief to staff,” said Fresno Superior Court Presiding Judge Gary Hoff. “While we wholeheartedly liked the Odyssey product, it was the return on investment that sold us. Not only will the system pay for itself in a matter of a few years, we will start to have cost savings in the second year and sustained savings throughout the life of the system.”
After a comprehensive and competitive procurement process, the Fresno Superior Court’s selection committee chose Odyssey because it is a proven commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software solution that is highly configurable; as such, Odyssey minimizes the need for customization, thus enabling the court’s IT resources to focus on other critical court matters. The selection committee also saw value in Tyler’s 30 years of experience and track record of successfully implementing Odyssey in county and state courts across the country.
