Yamhill County is Oregon's first county to pilot Tyler's Odyssey solution
Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced that Yamhill County, Ore., has successfully piloted Tyler's Odyssey®court case management solution. The State of Oregon selected Odyssey in 2011 for statewide implementation supporting state trial courts in each of Oregon's 36 counties.
Odyssey was selected to help meet the Oregon Judicial Department's eCourt goal of using technology to streamline court processes, reduce costs from handling and storing paper files, provide around-the-clock access to court information, and provide better information for judicial decision-making. Yamhill County, centrally located between the cities of Portland and Salem, was up and running on Odyssey within one year.
"This was an incredible team effort between local court staff, the Department's training and IT staff and Tyler Technologies' staff to be live in one year, and it validates our team approach to implementation," said Scott Smith, Oregon eCourt Program Director. "We chose Tyler because we had a high degree of confidence in the company and its solutions, and we are pleased with the results from our first pilot court. Having Tyler staff on the ground during implementation and go-live was a critical element in identifying issues and quickly correcting them. We are confident that this process will result in continued success as we roll out Odyssey to more counties."
Odyssey has replaced a 25-year-old court case management system at Yamhill County. More than 350,000 cases, 274,000 documents and 1,300 warrants were converted to Odyssey during the implementation phase to move the court toward a paper-on-demand courtroom.
"The successful Odyssey go-live in Yamhill County is the result of a proven, repeatable and highly reliable implementation process that Tyler has honed during six statewide Odyssey deployments and installations in more than 400 large and small counties nationwide," said Bruce Graham, president of Tyler's Courts & Justice Division. "Tyler's experience combined with the commitment of judiciaries like Oregon's and its counties creates efficient, digital courtrooms that we believe all court administrators, judges and attorneys want."
Tyler has successfully deployed Odyssey statewide in Indiana, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota and South Dakota, as well as in counties in eight other states. Clients include large sophisticated counties, such as Miami-Dade and Clark County Nevada (Las Vegas), as well as counties with populations as small as 25,000. The state of Maryland selected Odyssey in October 2011 and is currently being implemented in Anne Arundel County. Including Maryland and Oregon, Odyssey will serve approximately 450 counties with a combined population of more than 50 million.
