Metropolitan Court Clerks Association in Georgia Selects Tyler Technologies to Provide a Unified E-Filing Platform
Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:TYL) today announced that Gwinnett County, Georgia, and the Metropolitan Court Clerks Association have selected Tyler’s Odyssey eFileGATM solution to provide a unified electronic filing platform under a master services agreement (MSA). Any Georgia court may use the MSA to procure Tyler’s e-filing solution.
Odyssey eFileGA allows attorneys and other parties doing business with the courts to file cases, pleadings, motions and other documents online without having to travel to a physical court location. In addition to Gwinnett County, the rapidly growing number of Georgia counties that have selected eFileGA includes Bibb, Chatham, Cherokee, Clayton, DeKalb, Douglas, Floyd, Fulton, Rockdale, Glynn State Court and Houston State Court.
“We selected Tyler Technologies because of the company’s unmatched track record in providing integrated e-filing solutions for court systems for all court sizes regardless of volume. Most important, the Tyler e-filing solution is compatible with any case management system, as it is Web-based. Our goal is to provide one common platform for all attorneys to use for all filings – in the metro area and across Georgia,” said Richard T. Alexander Jr., Gwinnett County Clerk of Courts and President of the Metropolitan Court Clerks Association. “The master services agreement provides uniformity to court filers and helps ensure that state requirements have been met. We are excited about the opportunity to drive economic, environmental and technological change in courts across the metropolitan Atlanta area and Georgia, and we invite any court in Georgia to join eFileGA.”
Odyssey eFileGA is delivered as a Tyler-hosted solution and allows users to file documents with the courts 24 hours a day, every day of the week. As part of Tyler’s e-filing solution, courts can provide payment services securely online.
“Tyler has worked hard to broaden partnerships within Georgia’s judicial communities, and the new agreement with the Metropolitan Court Clerks Association means Tyler’s e-filing system now connects half of the state’s population with one unified system,” said Bruce Graham, president of Tyler’s Courts & Justice Division. “Odyssey eFileGA requires no out-of-pocket expenses for counties and quickly provides efficiencies for courts, lawyers and clerks. We are proud that the Metropolitan Court Clerks Association determined that eFileGA was the best platform for their customers, and we believe their criteria and selection process could be a good model for other Georgia judicial systems that are considering e-filing solutions.”
The Georgia Council of Magistrate Court Judges also selected Odyssey eFileGA and is the first in the state to expand access to justice by offering Tyler’s Odyssey Guide & File solution, which helps self-represented litigants with the self-service filing process via a simple-to-use Web portal. Tyler’s Odyssey e-filing platform currently processes almost 1 million filings per month and provides support for 300,000 e-filing users nationwide. The state of Texas recently implemented Tyler’s Odyssey software and hosted infrastructure for its mandatory e-filing platform called eFileTexas.govTM.
