Superior Court of California, County of Sonoma, Selects Tyler Technologies’ Odyssey Integrated Court Management System

  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  Business Wire  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.
