Arkansas State Courts Improve Service with E-Filing Solution from ACS, A Xerox Company
Technology will streamline court administration
DALLAS -- Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. (ACS), A Xerox Company (NYSE: XRX), is helping transform operations in Arkansas’ court system with technology to electronically file and manage court documents.
The state’s Administrative Office of the Courts has awarded ACS a contract to implement e-filing in the State Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, Circuit Court and District Court. E-filing will save time and money for the courts and attorneys.
“With e-filing, attorneys can securely submit court documents online, anytime, saving the cost of delivery and document processing. For the courts, receiving and processing documents electronically means new efficiencies and fewer redundant tasks,” said Timothy N. Holthoff, director, Court Information Systems Division, Administrative Office of the Courts.
The project is expected to begin in the first quarter of this year with a pilot in the Pulaski County Circuit Court in Little Rock. A program to roll out e-filing statewide is scheduled later in the year.
“Arkansas will have a solution to a problem that courts across the country face every day—how to best manage an overwhelming amount of information,” said Joseph Doherty, executive vice president and group president, ACS Government Solutions. “E-filing is a game changer. It will eliminate a huge administrative burden and enable the courts to maximize resources and improve operations.”
The e-filing software, provided by Tybera, will integrate with ACS’ Contexte case management system currently used in the state’s courts to easily share information and manage court operations.
