PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Indiana Supreme Court has selected Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) to provide a statewide e-filing system and replace the longstanding practice of accepting paper filings under a four-year, fixed-price agreement. The Odyssey File & ServeTM platform will be used for E-file Indiana and will accept all case types and work with multiple e-filing service providers.
The Indiana Supreme Court selected Tyler as its new e-filing manager after a thorough and highly competitive review, with a selection committee that included the Division of State Court Administration, a Circuit Court clerk, a member of the Indiana State Bar Association, and a national expert on e-filing. Hamilton County will serve as the pilot court and e-filing is scheduled to begin in the county within six to eight weeks.
The court previously chose Tyler’s Odyssey® court case management solution to manage cases for Indiana trial and appellate courts. This new agreement to implement Odyssey File & Serve, as the platform for E-file Indiana, allows the court to move from paper-based processes to more efficient and cost-effective e-filing. The court also selected Odyssey SessionWorks® Judge Edition to present case information on the bench via touch-screen technology.
More than 1.5 million new cases are filed annually with nearly 400 Indiana courts, and millions of additional document pages are filed in older cases through outdated processes that use large amounts of court staff time and space. E-filing will deliver convenience and cost savings to Indiana citizens and attorneys as they will be able to file court documents electronically at any time through an online Web-based process.
