Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced that the Superior Court of California, County of Kern, has selected Tyler’s Odyssey® court case management system to unify case management and streamline operations throughout the court.
Kern Superior Court selected Odyssey and its e-filing (electronic filing) solution to replace the Superior Court’s two, disparate case management systems. The current criminal and traffic court system is nearing the end of its life cycle, and other case types are handled by a completely different system. Because Odyssey is an integrated, end-to-end solution, it unifies case management across the court, streamlining processes and enabling court staff to focus on other critical operational matters.
“Odyssey checked off all the boxes of those items that we thought were crucial to a case management system that will serve us well into the future,” said Court Executive Officer Terry McNally. “Most importantly, it can be fully integrated with our justice partners, it has e-filing and document management capabilities and it reduces our maintenance costs significantly.”
The Superior Court is the third court 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. Kern County follows the superior courts of Kings, Orange, Merced, Fresno and San Luis Obispo in joining the Tyler community.
“As one of the larger California superior courts in terms of population and user base, Kern is a great example of a court pragmatically selecting a comprehensive technology solution to replace its disparate systems to better serve its constituents for years to come,” said Bruce Graham, president of Tyler’s Courts & Justice Division. “We are proud to partner with the Superior Court of Kern County as it unifies its case management system and streamlines judicial processes in the county.”
Kern County is located at the southern end of California’s Central Valley, just north of Los Angeles County, and has a population of approximately 850,000. The county seat is the city of Bakersfield.
In total, Odyssey has been selected for use by more than 500 counties in 20 states, serving more than 75 million residents. Odyssey has been successfully deployed statewide in Indiana, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota and South Dakota; statewide implementations in Idaho, Maryland, Oregon, Rhode Island and Washington are currently under way.
