Additional criteria met by award winners include:    *Creating a unique process that utilizes a Tyler application   *Realizing significant savings after implementing a Tyler product   *Increasing staff productivity by implementing a Tyler product   *Empowering employees, citizens or vendors  San Luis Obispo Superior Court exhibited leadership by moving quickly to consolidate 25 disconnected systems onto a single Odyssey platform; multiple Collin County offices were recognized for an integrated use of Odyssey across the county in order to efficiently share information between multiple agencies — including constables, district and county clerks, the jail, and the courthouse; and the Texas Office of Court Administration deployed Odyssey File & Serve to support a statewide e-filing platform, known as eFileTexas.gov, with an expected savings of 24 million sheets of paper in 2014.  Tyler Excellence Award winners were honored on Monday, April 14, at Tyler’s Connect 2014 user conference, where they were presented with the award and given the opportunity to share their best practices and lessons learned with their public sector peers.  “We are pleased to publicly recognize clients like the Texas OCA who mandated e-filing statewide to reduce costs for filers and improve efficiencies for courts, and San Luis Obispo who created a model for other California courts to leverage to meet their case management needs in a streamlined way,” said Bruce Graham, president of Tyler’s Courts & Justice Division. “Sharing successes shows what is possible, and helps us all make our courts better. Congratulations to the winners of Odyssey’s Tyler Excellence Awards.”  San Luis Obispo Judge Dodie Harman recently outlined the successful implementation of Odyssey during the April 24-25 California Judicial Council meeting.
