Courthouse Technologies is pleased to announce that the Santa Barbara County Superior Court has begun implementation of a new jury system! The courts located north of Los Angeles, California has entered into an agreement with CHT to implement Courthouse JMS along with Courthouse eResponse, our browser-facing self-service application; Courthouse IVR, our telephony self-service application; Courthouse Kiosk, our kiosk software for JMS, and; Courthouse SMS, our text-messaging service for jury management. The project will replace the Court’s current implementation of Jury +, Jury System Incorporated’s jury management system.
Santa Barbara County will be the 2nd Superior Court in California to utilize the Courthouse JMS platform. “We are very excited to begin work with the goal of improving their jury management operation,” says CHT Vice President of Client Services, John Arntsen. “It’s an opportunity to expand our business in California and add onto the success we have seen in Placer County over the last couple of years. We believe that this is just the beginning.”
The project will begin at the summer of 2019, targeting the beginning of 2020 for Go-Live. This will allow the Santa Barbara County Superior Court to increase communications with the public via email, text, and phone while making life easier on the jury staff in providing this essential service. This in connection with their use of our summons printing, mailing, and address verification service, SummonsDirect, we are confident that their choice go with CHT will pay off in short order.
