Nevada county taps Tyler Technologies for court software

Nevada's Clark County hopes to improve the way it manages information related to court cases with a new automated case management system from Tyler Technologies Inc.

Under the $4.5 million contract, Tyler Technologies of Dallas will furnish software licenses to the 8th Judicial District Court, the Office of the Clark County Clerk and the Las Vegas Justice Court. The agreement also covers professional services, maintenance and support.

Tyler will implement its Odyssey case management software for the district court and county clerk to use in criminal, civil, family and juvenile court cases, and for the Las Vegas Justice Court's use in criminal and traffic cases.

Tyler also will perform project management, data conversion, customization, configuration planning and training for the project.

The system includes electronic document management for all court documents filed in these cases, judicial assignment and scheduling, and management and assessment of court fines and fees.

The new system also will give Clark County expanded statewide reporting capabilities, as well as integration with various local agencies and the courts' electronic filing provider. Fine payments and public access to data via the Internet are also new features.
