PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) signed a $6.9 million agreement with Clayton County, Georgia, for Tyler’s Odyssey solution. The Tyler Alliance project includes Odyssey Case Manager™, Odyssey Jail Manager™, Odyssey Attorney Manager™, Odyssey Supervision™, and Odyssey Jury™, as well as Brazos™ eCitations and Tyler Eagle™.
After more than twenty years of using an in-house developed solution, Clayton County leadership required an updated case management system to manage its growing caseload and technology needs. The county selected Tyler because Odyssey is an end-to-end justice solution and has a strong presence in the Metro-Atlanta area, with 10 metro clients using Odyssey. The county was also familiar with Tyler’s expertise in the public sector, having partnered with Tyler on eFileGA since 2014.
“We look forward to bringing greater access to justice through Tyler’s fully integrated solution, as well as having the ability to share information with our justice partners at the jail and probation officers as well as with other courts in the Metro-Atlanta area,” said Detrick Stanford, Clayton County chief operating officer.
Odyssey Case Manager will manage all case types for the Superior, State, Magistrate and Probate courts. It will provide financial and document management, and includes a suite of Odyssey e-solutions, such as Odyssey ePayment Manager™, Odyssey Portal™, and Odyssey Guide & File™. The suite of solutions will enhance access to justice for the county’s constituents, allowing self-represented litigants to file and retrieve information about their own cases electronically.
This project will utilize Tyler Alliance to share information across departments, agencies and jurisdictions. Tyler Alliance is a multi-agency, distributed platform that integrates public safety and criminal justice systems. The Odyssey solution will manage data as soon as it is entered into the jail and will flow seamlessly between product centers across the Odyssey platform. Odyssey Jail Manager will securely manage inmate information at Clayton County’s jail with advanced solutions for pretrial services. Information will move to the prosecuting offices and through the courts with minimal data reentry. On the bench, judges will have the tools to review, write, and sign documents electronically. Finally, Odyssey Supervision will be used to assist with Clayton’s in-house probation services. The criminal justice process will be greatly enhanced through these processes.
Additionally, Clayton County and all Georgia courts using Odyssey will benefit through another component of Tyler Alliance: Tyler dataXchange™. This tool allows the criminal justice information services (CJIS) community to communicate and share information in real time, across jurisdictions. These clients include six contiguous counties: Clayton, Fulton, DeKalb, Forsyth, Rockdale, and Spalding, ultimately connecting roughly a quarter of Georgia’s population through these Metro-Atlanta courts.
“We’re eager to bring a fully integrated solution to Clayton County to help them manage the flow of information in the county more efficiently,” said Bruce Graham, president of Tyler’s Courts & Justice Division. “We are confident these solutions will not only assist in helping constituents, but also will make communication easier with fellow courts in Georgia.”
