Maine Launches e-Filing in Select Courts With Tyler Technologies' eFileMaine Solution

Statewide business and consumer court and Bangor-area courts offer e-filing and access to electronic court records

PLANO, Texas - Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) announced today that the Maine Judicial Branch (MJB) has successfully gone live with Tyler's Odyssey File & Serve™ solution, eFileMaine™. The solution allows the MJB to electronically review and accept court case filings from litigants.

The MJB, a unified state court system, selected Tyler's Odyssey File & Serve solution after an extensive RFP process. Odyssey File & Serve is a primary component of the state's new e-filing court case management system (eFCMS). Another component is a public web portal that enables the public, attorneys, and other stakeholders to have self-service access using a computer and web-browsing technology.

A key component of the eFCMS initiative is electronic filing. Tyler's solution enables e-filing for all litigants to support the MJB's mission: to administer justice by providing a safe, accessible, efficient and impartial system of dispute resolution that serves the public interest, protects individual rights, and instills respect for the law. eFiling is now available for litigants in the Penobscot County Superior Court, Bangor District Court, and the statewide business and consumer court, and will eventually be available in all Maine courts across the state for all case types.

"As a long-term technology partner to the Maine Judicial Branch, we're proud to announce the successful go-live of electronic filing in Maine," said Rusty Smith, president of Tyler's Courts & Justice Division. "Maine has been able to optimize its court filings and document management with the help of Tyler's solutions, bringing benefits such as decreased file processing time, a reduction in physical storage, and a decrease in cost-per-transaction with automated document processing."

With the successful implementation of eFileMaine, the MJB is empowering its litigants to file court documents electronically. In addition, the MJB can access filed case documents via one centralized location, easily track electronic service history and status for users, and view a master list of all parties that receive electronic filing service on a particular case.

Maine is the 16th state client to deploy Odyssey File & Serve, joining states such as Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Oregon, and Texas.

More than 2 million registered users submit electronic filings through Tyler's Odyssey File & Serve solution annually. The solution processes more than 45 million e-filings and 215 million pages every year.
