Georgia’s Third Largest County Simplifies Filing Process with Tyler Technologies’ Odyssey® eFileGA Solution
DeKalb County chooses Odyssey eFileGA as the single source for attorneys and courts to file and manage documents across the county
PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Georgia’s DeKalb County Superior, State and Magistrate courts have selected Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) for its Odyssey® eFileGA software solution built on the technology of Tyler’s Odyssey File & Serve e-filing product. Designed around the state’s unique needs, Odyssey eFileGA streamlines e-filing processes, reduces costs and eliminates the need to file paper documents.
“Odyssey eFileGA does not require any out-of-pocket expenses for the county and will provide efficiencies across the board for courts, lawyers and clerks”
DeKalb County selected Tyler’s e-filing solution during a competitive review process that included judges from the county’s court systems and directors at the county. The courts chose Odyssey because it offers a simplified online portal, was overall the best product reviewed and is backed by Tyler’s financial strength and experience with e-filing in 11 other states.
“Odyssey eFileGA is an efficient use of tax dollars and will provide our customers with enhanced access to justice,” said DeKalb County Clerk of Superior Court Debra DeBerry. “With e-filing, there is no such thing as a lost document and there is less room for human error. By selecting Odyssey eFileGA, we are securing our future for DeKalb County courts’ filing systems and I hope in my lifetime to see a wholly paperless clerk system.”
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 the solution, courts can provide payment services securely online.
“Odyssey eFileGA does not require any out-of-pocket expenses for the county and will provide efficiencies across the board for courts, lawyers and clerks,” said Bruce Graham, president of Tyler’s Courts & Justice Division. “DeKalb County’s court system was quick to see the value in automating court filing processes and securing their future through a sound investment in court technology.”
DeKalb County, a suburb of Atlanta, is Georgia’s third most populous county with approximately 740,000 residents and is the sixth county in the state to select eFileGA. The county’s three courts process more than 80,000 new case filings annually. Tyler’s Odyssey e-filing solution currently processes more than 750,000 filings per month and provides support for more than 145,000 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.gov.
