Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced that 13 Texas counties in the past 18 months have selected Tyler’s Odyssey® integrated courts and justice software solution to modernize county court processes. Counties using Odyssey Case Manager now make up 55 percent of the population of Texas.
Texas counties selected Odyssey because the system eliminates manual processes, provides a paperless workflow and delivers data integration between courts, prosecuting attorneys, law enforcement and corrections, which creates efficiencies across county offices. The counties that recently selected Odyssey are Smith, Henderson, Andrews, Childress, Atascosa, Refugio, Montgomery, Parker, Brazoria, Howard, Morris, Winkler and San Jacinto. This new group of Odyssey clients includes satisfied Tyler clients extending their relationship and moving to the Odyssey case management system, as well as new members of the Tyler family. Of these 13 counties, 10 have selected Tyler’s Odyssey software as a service (SaaS) offering.
Each county had its own unique business needs, but most are integrating their court system with their jail and prosecutors’ offices. The same is true of most of the more than 50 Odyssey counties in Texas. With this integration across the court, the jail and the prosecutor’s offices, counties save staff time and reduce errors by eliminating the need to duplicate information across multiple systems, and court cases and inmate processes are managed more efficiently and safely. Having a single integrated system also allows counties to eliminate paper from their processes, and provides citizens better access to information online.
“We are committed to serving court systems of all sizes and our industry experience makes Tyler the clear leader in the courts and justice market, with more than 30 years of successfully implementing software in county and state courts across the country,” said Bruce Graham, president of Tyler’s Courts & Justice Division. “Texas counties are selecting Odyssey because they value their investment in technology and Tyler’s evergreen philosophy provides the return on investment they’re looking for by including all future Odyssey updates as part of the annual maintenance agreement.”
In addition to now providing the Odyssey case management systems to more than 50 Texas counties, the Texas Supreme Court recently mandated e-filing in civil matters and selected Tyler to be the statewide infrastructure provider for its eFileTexas.gov solution. More than 53 counties are live on the Odyssey-based e-filing platform which now has more than 60,000 registered users. All 254 counties are anticipated to be functional on the system by July 2016.
