Rhode Island Judiciary to use Tyler’s comprehensive Odyssey® court case management and e-filing solution
DALLAS – The Rhode Island Judiciary has signed an agreement with Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) for its Odyssey® integrated courts and justice solution. The agreement is valued at approximately $6 million and includes software licenses, related professional services, maintenance and support. Rhode Island represents Tyler’s ninth statewide client for Odyssey.
The Rhode Island Judiciary has invested in a wide range of integrated Odyssey applications, including case management, financial management, public access, supervision and SessionWorks® Judge Edition and Clerk Edition to aid in courtroom efficiency. Additionally, the Judiciary will use Odyssey File & Serve, replacing their current manual filing processes, for simplified e-filing (electronic filing) that will benefit the courts and legal community.
“We were looking for a vendor that had proven experience with statewide court case management implementations and e-filing; after a thorough competitive evaluation it was clear Tyler was our best choice,” said Peter Panciocco, Rhode Island Supreme Court’s executive director and member of the state’s courts executive committee and vendor evaluation team. “Odyssey’s large network of successful users will provide Rhode Island a valuable resource, and we plan to leverage their best practices and apply those lessons to our new business processes. In addition, e-filing will provide tremendous benefit to the state by eliminating our current paper process, saving time and money.”
The comprehensive Odyssey solution selected by Rhode Island will create an end-to-end electronic process - starting at the initiation of the case, via e-filing, and ending with an electronic case file used by judges on the bench. The Rhode Island Judiciary serves a population of approximately 1,050,000 with seven physical court locations throughout five counties. Odyssey will support approximately 750 internal court users at Rhode Island’s Supreme Court, Superior Court, Family Court, District Court, Worker’s Compensation Court and the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal.
In addition to innovative products, Tyler has mature systems and expert processes that help courts generate efficiencies and cost savings from their technology investments. This has led to a track record of success for Odyssey clients in more than 450 counties across 18 states serving more than 75 million citizens.
“We are proud that Rhode Island has selected Odyssey to create an electronic process from initiation to disposition,” said Bruce Graham, president of Tyler’s Courts & Justice Division. “We look forward to a long and successful partnership supporting the Rhode Island Judiciary’s current and future court technology needs.”
