Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:TYL) has signed an agreement with DeKalb County, Georgia, to implement Tyler’s Odyssey(R) court case management solution. The contract, valued at approximately $2.6 million, includes software licenses, related professional services, maintenance and support.

“We are excited to begin the implementation of our new case management system, Odyssey; this has long been a goal for me that our county utilize and benefit from the best,” said DeKalb County Clerk of Superior Court Debra DeBerry. “I am grateful to my partners, the CEO, Board of Commissions and our IT folks for making this possible. I also want to thank the DeKalb County Bench, Magistrate, State and Superior courts, and the sheriff and district attorney for their cooperation in providing efficient, cutting-edge technology to better serve the citizens of DeKalb County.”

The county selected multiple Odyssey applications, including case management and financial management, to integrate processes across the county’s offices. The county, a suburb of Atlanta, has a population of 713,300, making it the third-most populous county in Georgia.

DeKalb County can also access Tyler dataXchangeTM, which allows neighboring jurisdictions to share data, thereby automating the flow of information and streamlining operations across offices and agencies. DeKalb County’s location between two other Odyssey clients, Rockdale County and Fulton County, makes sharing information about warrants, citations and more between counties particularly valuable. Odyssey is also fully integrated with the county’s e-filing platform, Odyssey eFileGATM, which is also provided by Tyler and is being used by courts in the Atlanta metropolitan area.

“We’re excited to expand our partnership with DeKalb County’s court system to help them move closer to their goal of an integrated court system,” said Bruce Graham, president of Tyler’s Courts & Justice Division. “Tyler has decades of experience successfully implementing software statewide and in counties of all sizes. We look forward to continuing this long-term relationship that will transform DeKalb County’s justice community into a cohesive, connected enterprise that can efficiently grow and evolve to meet the future needs of its constituents.”

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.
