5 Reasons to Choose a Small Business Over Big Corporations

Posted by John Arntsen on Thu, Feb 08, 2018 @ 09:00 AM

Small-Business-Sign-300x256.jpgWhy a court would purchase software from a small, boutique software vendor rather than from a more conventional, larger corporation? Its an interesting question. It implies that it is riskier to do business with a smaller firm. We know this because big corporations tout their size, the number of employees and resources they have at their disposal as one of their main selling points. At face value, a bigger company feels like a safer pick. However, I believe that picking a vendor because of its size is misleading. Here are 5 reasons why you should think twice before going with a big corporation.

If Your JMS Could Talk...

Posted by John Arntsen on Tue, Jun 07, 2016 @ 06:00 AM

When Courthouse eResponse was first released, we allowed jurors to respond to their summons online, fill out their questionnaire, make requests, and determine their service requirements. Later, when Courthouse SMS was developed, we enabled JMS users to send jurors automated and manual text messages related to their jury service. In our continuing effort to offer the most comprehensive jury platform available, we have developed functionality to combine the benefits of Courthouse eResponse and SMS together. Courthouse SMS Response allows jurors to correspond with Courthouse JMS directly through a text message conversation. This latest functionality is designed to provide even more convenience for your jurors by offering another method to communicate with the court. They are able to:

Is Your Jury Operation ADA Compliant?

Posted by John Arntsen on Tue, Mar 29, 2016 @ 10:30 AM

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities. Under this law, people with disabilities are entitled to all of the rights, privileges, advantages, and opportunities that others have when participating in civic activities, including jury duty. This can apply to the physical access required to be a juror like courthouse or courtroom access as well as self-service functions available to the public, like online services, communications, and software. The question, then, is how can your jury management system accommodate someone with a disability with the same access as everyone else? How can we achieve this? Where are the areas to focus on?
