Tools to Simplify, Streamline, and Share

Let us help you automate your court, make work easier, and make cash collections less cumbersome.

Automated Processing

Wouldn't it be nice to come into the court every morning to find all your cases updated — and warrants, courtesy notices, show cause orders, and other documents ready to print? With Municipal Justice automated processing, your day just got a whole lot simpler. Tyler makes it easy.

  • Maintain consistent rules and workflow for court dates, fines, judgments, and print documents.
  • Eliminate tracking cases that need a warrant. Our automated warrant process issues warrants on cases meeting your criteria, automatically increasing fines and adding fees.

Go Paperless

You can eliminate hours of manual labor by eliminating the need to file, retrieve, copy, and produce paper files. Using Municipal Justice's integrated document processing, you can cut out paper completely, and securely manage all key information electronically.

  • Increase customer satisfaction by reducing wait-time at the window.
  • Increase the speed and efficiency of your court when you no longer have to transport files into the courtroom and refile cases.
  • Pull paper case files for trial and allow judges and clerks to view documents simultaneously — allowing the court to get more done with fewer resources.

Streamline Your Workflow

By maintaining consistent rules and workflow designed specifically for each court, Municipal Justice software automatically updates cases so warrants, courtesy notices, show cause orders, and all other documents are always accurate and accessible. This automation not only saves time, but can also reduce overhead costs when paired with other applications like Tyler's Content Manager. This allows you to eliminate hours of manual labor by going paperless with integrated document processing.

  • Flexibly drill down into cases directly from the Control Center to update and edit by batch or individually.
  • Access key information with the click of a button — obtain cases, view citations, process defendant records, change court dates, and print letters and forms.
  • Update files automatically and on-the-spot — edit fees, amend cases, apply bonds, print documents, enter judgments — all from one screen, without having to search for the case.

Integrate Financial, Collections, and Payments

A complete financial and collection system is integrated into the court software. It can support a variety of payment scenarios, including partial payments, payment plans, or multiple payments on one receipt. Cash, surety, and PR bonds, as well as jail and community service credit, can all be managed through the payment system.

  • Make payment processing easy to manage from within the system and communicate payment information throughout all Municipal Justice modules automatically.
  • Utilize user-defined fees, which can be adjusted when payments are entered.
  • Eliminate additional financial processing through a direct integration with all Tyler General Ledger applications.

Customize Reporting and Analytics

With more than 80 standard reports, including all state and federally mandated reports, Municipal Justice also allows individual customization for reporting and analytics. Using specially designed macros, each court can create everything needed to accurately and efficiently share key information.

  • Easily create the exact reports you need with a drag-and-drop report writer for an unlimited number of custom reports on the fly.
  • Save reports as templates, or use them as one-time exports — all without a third-party tool.

Integrated Jury Management

Get the flexibility you need to tailor the jury process to fit your court.

  • Manage the jury wheel and organize pools and panels.
  • Check in jurors electronically and accept juror questionnaires online.
  • Allow jurors to reschedule service based on your court’s restrictions.
  • Shuffle jurors for quick changes in courtroom assignments.
  • Create and maintain unique codes for exemptions, demographics, precinct, and court types.
  • Print juror service checks and maintain charity lists for donation of service fees.
  • Integrate with Municipal Justice and Financial Management Pro.
  • Meets all local, state, and federal jury requirements.
