Today’s state court systems are under pressure to do more with less. To keep pace with growing service demands while budgets stagnate or shrink, courts rightly look to automation as a way to conduct daily business more efficiently and cost-effectively. But purchasing business solutions from the big national vendors can be prohibitively expensive. The alternative of developing solutions in-house has its own shortcomings, often resulting in long delays and a patchwork of single-purpose applications that are difficult to integrate and maintain.
RSI offers a solution for state court systems looking to modernize their operations while holding down costs: a fully integrated, end-to-end judicial case management system that fits comfortably in your budget.
Forecourt is a Complete Judicial Case Management Solution
The Forecourt® Judicial Case Management System (CMS) is a packaged solution that supports the entire court case lifecycle. Forecourt CMS enables court clerks to initiate, schedule, track, search, and report on judicial cases through an intuitive browser-based interface. Along with delivering these core case management functions, the Forecourt product suite offers optional modules for:
- Sending electronic notices to attorneys and case litigants.
- Integrating with ECF-compliant judicial e-filing systems.
- Publishing non-confidential case information to a searchable web portal for public access.
- Document storage and retrieval.
You can even extend Forecourt with special-purpose judicial mobile applications that meet the particular needs of specific roles within the court system, such as judges and clerks.
Forecourt Won’t Bust Your Budget
As a small IT solutions company that focuses exclusively on the New England public sector market, we’re able to deliver high quality affordable IT solutions for state government across the region. Forecourt and other solutions from RSI cost substantially less than solutions from the big national and global vendors, both in capital expense and in ongoing licensing and support costs. Forecourt’s modularity is another feature that helps to control your costs: you buy only the capabilities that you need.
Forecourt Can Be Custom-Tailored to Your Needs
RSI has a long history of building successful software solutions for New England state courts and agencies.
