Merced County replaces legacy system with Tyler’s modern, unified
system to increase court efficiency
Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced that California’s
Superior Court of Merced County has selected Tyler’s Odyssey®
court case management system to modernize the Superior Court’s
operations and provide the judicial officers, court personnel and all
court customers improved access to court information.
case management and document management solutions will be used
throughout the Merced Superior Court. The agreement also includes
financial management, public access, and SessionWorks® Judge
and Clerk editions to aid in courtroom efficiency. The court will also
use Odyssey File & Serve for simplified e-filing (electronic filing).
“The court is excited about this project,” said Judge Brian McCabe,
Presiding Judge of the Superior Court of Merced County. “The Tyler
Odyssey system will bring us into the 21st century and allow court staff
to perform their jobs more efficiently. We always strive to find new
technologies that will provide the public improved access to justice.”
The Merced Superior Court is the first to procure a case management
system using the Master Services Agreement (MSA) that gives California’s58 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. Merced will be the third California Superior Court to
successfully contract with Tyler after the Judicial Council’s decision
to stop deployment of the California Case Management System (CCMS) early
last year. Merced follows the Superior Courts of Kings and San Luis
Obispo counties in joining the Tyler community; both courts conducted
their own individual procurements and independently selected Tyler.
