PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) announced an agreement with Travis County, Texas, for Tyler’s Modria® online dispute resolution (ODR) software. Under the agreement, the Travis County Justice of the Peace, Precinct Two, will use Modria to help residents resolve disputes online.
Travis County is the first court in Texas to select Modria, allowing parties involved in a lawsuit to engage directly with each other to reach a resolution without coming to court. This will save residents and the court time and money.
“We believe Tyler’s Modria solution will not only facilitate quicker resolution in legal disputes, but it will also create greater access to justice for the many members of our community who cannot easily travel to the courthouse,” said Randall Slagle, Travis County Justice of the Peace, Precinct Two. “Providing online dispute resolution is another way our organization is working to ensure all members of our community have access to a fair and impartial court system.”
ODR creates opportunity for resolution without having the parties physically come to the court; if parties can't solve their dispute online, they still have the option to appear before a judge. Tyler’s Modria solution offers the workflows and communication tools necessary to facilitate any kind of resolution, from simple debt disputes to complex family and custody cases. Its intuitive user experience and workflow tools are designed to resolve issues in a fast and efficient manner, with a fair and transparent process for all participants.
“Travis County continues to be a leader in innovative approaches to justice, and we’re eager to begin implementing Tyler’s Modria solution for civil case types in Travis County,” said Jamie Gillespie, general manager of Tyler’s Modria solution. “Modria successfully resolves disputes, and it’s great to see Travis County take a leadership role in improving access to justice here in Texas.”
Modria continues to gain momentum in courts across the country. Williamson County, Texas, recently became the second Texas county to adopt Modria. Fulton County, Georgia, also recently signed a Modria contract for Small Claims and Landlord Tenant cases, and Clark County, NV (Las Vegas), is up and running with Modria for creation of parenting plans in Contested Divorces as of April.
Travis County is home to the Texas state capitol in Austin, and is the fifth most populous county in Texas with a population of more than 1 million. Tyler also provides its Brazos™, SoftCode™ and Odyssey solutions® to Travis County.
