Later this month, the Macomb County Circuit Court will be rolling out the first cash-dispensing jury kiosks in the State of Michigan. Their goal? To get jurors their payment as quickly as possible while keeping costs as low as possible.
Last week I stopped in to see one of our longest–standing clients, Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas in Dayton, OH. They were setting up for a presentation on their juror cash payment kiosk which they put on in connection with the Ohio Jury Management Association (OJMA). They wanted to show other courts a new payment method where jurors use self-service kiosks with cash-dispensers.
Courthouse Technologies is always trying to provide jury offices with useful information about how to make their jury operation better. One area that I discuss a lot when speaking to jury staff, is how they pay jurors or how they would LIKE to pay their jurors. Most jury staff want to pay jurors as quickly as possible without driving up the cost or inconvenience to the court. More importantly, they want to do this while still maintaining the court’s business policies and audit trails. Most see this as a conundrum.
We are always communicating and asking our clients about new ideas, policies and procedures they have incorporated (with the CHT platform) that change the way we all view how the modern jury operation should be conducted and how efficiencies can be gained.
