Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced that the Idaho Courts have selected Tyler’s Odyssey ® court case management system for statewide implementation. The contract includes software licensing fees, professional services and a multi-year maintenance agreement.
The Idaho Courts submitted a request for proposal (RFP) for an integrated court case management solution to replace its decades-old system which had reached its end of life. After a comprehensive and competitive bidding process, the state’s selection committee chose Odyssey because it will improve access to court information for internal and external stakeholders, improve integration of information with judicial partners, and maximize the efficiency of the court’s business processes. Tyler’s significant track record of successful statewide implementations also factored into the decision, as did Tyler’s ability to provide a comprehensive solution and on-going maintenance and support at the lowest cost.
Chief Justice Roger S. Burdick, chair of Idaho’s Court Technology Committee, said, “The Idaho Courts are excited to move forward from an aging computerized case management system to a modern Web-based electronic court records system, subject to appropriations. This shift will improve the efficiencies and effectiveness of our courts as we transition to an electronic court record. Tyler’s proven solutions will help us streamline court operations, improve the delivery of information to judicial partners, provide enhanced services to the public and save costs.”
The state chose multiple Odyssey applications to help meet its operational goals, including court case management, content management, financial management, jury management, public access, and electronic filing (e-filing). Odyssey SessionWorks ® Judge and Clerk editions were also selected to present data digitally to clerks and judges on the bench via touch-screen technology.“By going through a competitive bid process and by investing in proven technology, the Idaho Courts and its technology selection committee have shown leadership and established a technology path for the future,” said Bruce Graham, president of Tyler’s Courts & Justice Division. “Tyler proved to the state that Odyssey will help the Courts improve its business practices and provide Idahoans with increased access to court information. We’re proud to partner with the state of Idaho and look forward to a successful implementation.”
