Cameron County, Texas, Signs $3.7 Million Contract for Courts Software



January 5, 2009 By

Cameron County is a member of the Texas Conference of Urban Counties (CUC), a non-profit organization consisting of 35 counties across the state, which accounts for approximately 80 percent of the state's population. As a CUC member, the county will deploy Tyler's Odyssey Case Manager software based on the software license agreement signed in 2006 between Tyler and the CUC. Under the most recent contract, Tyler will provide implementation and related professional services for Cameron County. In addition to Case Manager, the County will use the Prosecutor, Check Manager, and Jail Manager and Law Enforcement applications from Tyler's integrated court solution.

"Cameron County is doing what many counties throughout Texas and courts across the U.S. have done -- turn to Tyler for its courts and justice software solution," said Bruce Graham, president of Tyler's Courts & Justice Solutions. "With Tyler's Web-based, integrated solution, Cameron County will experience increased efficiencies and improved integration by replacing the disparate systems it currently uses with a single solution from Tyler."

"We anticipate that the implementation of the new software will benefit Cameron County in many ways," commented Robert L. Lopez, director of administrative services for Cameron County. "Aside from the obvious benefits of modern technology, it will bring all justice departments under one umbrella and improve the channels of communication. We also look forward to having the ability to scan documents into the system and gaining the incident tracking and monitoring benefits of the Law Enforcement product center. Commissioner Sofia C. Benavides and Judge Migdalia Lopez, our IT committee co-chairs, should be commended for their efforts to bring everyone together during the selection process."
