Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:TYL) has signed a contract with Harris County, Texas, to implement Tyler’s Odyssey(R) court case management system at the county clerk’s office. The agreement is valued at $3.5 million and Odyssey will replace the office’s legacy solution for civil, probate and mental health cases. Harris County is the third most populous county in the U.S., with more than 4.4 million residents, and is home to the city of Houston.

“The Harris County Clerk’s Office constantly strives toward excellence by implementing the most innovative and proven technology throughout the office,” said Harris County Clerk Stan Stanart. “After careful consideration, we determined that Tyler’s Odyssey product is the best in the industry at this time and for the foreseeable future. We fully expect Odyssey to bring increased effectiveness and efficiency to our courts, while keeping pace with the latest technology necessary to support the third largest county in the United States.”

The Harris County Clerk’s Office selected Odyssey because of the system’s ability to be configured to meet the office’s business goals without requiring custom development, because it has proven functionality that works for Texas county clerk processes, and because of Tyler’s track record of successful implementations and financial stability.

In addition to core Odyssey functionality, the clerk’s office chose to implement Odyssey SessionWorks(R) Judge Edition to present case information on the bench via touch-screen technology. The county also selected Tyler’s public access portal to make case records and court dockets available via the clerk’s website. Odyssey is fully integrated with the state’s mandated e-filing platform for civil cases, eFileTexas.govTM, for which Tyler is the statewide infrastructure provider.

“Texas counties are choosing Odyssey because it’s a proven, long-term solution that can scale to meet their unique needs,” said Bruce Graham, president of Tyler’s Courts & Justice Division. “We’re excited to expand our partnership with Harris County as part of our commitment to serving court systems of all sizes in Texas.”

Tyler has proven its ability to meet similar needs in complex projects, including statewide Odyssey implementations and other high-volume jurisdictions such as Clark County, Nevada, home to Las Vegas, as well as Miami-Dade County, Florida. Odyssey was also recently selected by the Los Angeles Superior Court, which is the largest court system in the U.S.

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.
