Superior Court of California, County of Sonoma, Selects Tyler Technologies’
Odyssey Integrated Court Management System
Odyssey chosen to streamline and unify case management across the court
PLANO, Texas -- June 5, 2014
Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced that the Superior Court
of California, County of Sonoma, has selected Tyler’s Odyssey^® court case
management system to unify case management and streamline operations
throughout the court.
Odyssey was selected by the Sonoma Superior Court after a competitive review.
A fundamental requirement for the court case management system is that it has
the functionality to integrate with the current data management applications
developed and maintained since the 1980s by the county, known as the
Integrated Justice System (IJS). IJS serves the county’s key justice partner
offices: the district attorney, probation, public defender, courts, sheriff
records, detention and law enforcement. Odyssey is replacing the IJS’s court
system for all case types, which includes criminal, civil, traffic, family,
juvenile and probate.
“Tyler’s Odyssey has been selected as a tool to advance our court’s goals in
carrying out our core case management functions in the most cost-effective
manner and leveraging on modern technology to enhance access and e-commence
capabilities; this is a long time coming and we can’t wait to implement it,”
said Honorable Kenneth Gnoss, presiding judge of the Sonoma Superior Court.
The court’s license agreement incorporates all of Odyssey’s core court
capabilities, including case management, public access, document management
and financial management. The court also selected Odyssey SessionWorks^® Judge
Edition, a powerful, electronic courtroom system that presents judges with
data digitally on the bench via touch-screen technology, as well as Odyssey
SessionWorks ^ Clerk Edition to aid in courtroom efficiency and support
business best practices.
Sonoma Superior Court used the state’s Master Services Agreement (MSA) which
gives California’s 58 superior courts the ability to purchase Odyssey at
pre-negotiated terms, conditions and pricing outlined in the MSA. 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.
Located about 50 miles north of San Francisco, Sonoma County has approximately
500,000 residents and is part of the state’s storied “Wine Country” region;
its county seat is the city of Santa Rosa. The county recently licensed
Tyler’s Eagle recording and document management solution, and has used Tyler’s
AES residential computer-assisted mass appraisal (CAMA) solution for
California since 2010. To date, 19 California superior courts have announced
that they have chosen Tyler’s Odyssey court management solution.
In total, Odyssey serves more than 100 million residents, a third of the U.S.
population, in more than 600 counties across 21 states. Odyssey has been
successfully deployed statewide in Indiana, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New
Mexico, North Dakota and South Dakota; statewide implementations in Idaho,
Maryland, Oregon, Rhode Island and Washington are currently underway.
