The Rhode Island Judiciary has signed an agreement with Tyler
Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) for its Odyssey®integrated
courts and justice solution. The agreement is valued at
approximately $6 million and includes software licenses, related
professional services, maintenance and support. Rhode Island represents
Tyler's ninth statewide client for Odyssey.
The Rhode Island Judiciary has invested in a wide range of integrated Odyssey
applications, including case management, financial management, public
access, supervision and SessionWorks® Judge Edition and Clerk
Edition to aid in courtroom efficiency. Additionally, the Judiciary will
use Odyssey File & Serve, replacing their current manual filing
processes, for simplified e-filing (electronic filing) that will benefit
the courts and legal community.
"We were looking for a vendor that had proven experience with statewide
court case management implementations and e-filing; after a thorough
competitive evaluation it was clear Tyler was our best choice," said
Peter Panciocco, Rhode Island Supreme Court's executive director and
member of the state's courts executive committee and vendor evaluation
team. "Odyssey's large network of successful users will provide Rhode
Island a valuable resource, and we plan to leverage their best practices
and apply those lessons to our new business processes. In addition,
e-filing will provide tremendous benefit to the state by eliminating our
current paper process, saving time and money."
The comprehensive Odyssey solution selected by Rhode Island will create
an end-to-end electronic process - starting at the initiation of the
case, via e-filing, and ending with an electronic case file used by
judges on the bench. The Rhode Island Judiciary serves a population of
approximately 1,050,000 with seven physical court locations throughout
five counties. Odyssey will support approximately 750 internal court
users at Rhode Island's Supreme Court, Superior Court, Family Court,
District Court, Worker's Compensation Court and the Rhode Island Traffic
In addition to innovative products, Tyler has mature systems and expert
processes that help courts generate efficiencies and cost savings from
their technology investments. This has led to a track record of success
for Odyssey clients in more than 450 counties across 18 states serving
more than 75 million citizens.
"We are proud that Rhode Island has selected Odyssey to create an
electronic process from initiation to disposition," said Bruce Graham,
president of Tyler's Courts & Justice Division. "We look forward to a
long and successful partnership supporting the Rhode Island Judiciary's
current and future court technology needs."
