We know each have their own set of processing standards—and issues—to contend with. To provide a technology solution that truly works for the offices that process court filings, it takes a company who knows how those offices live and breathe. After decades of hands-on experience in court records, Cott Systems has compiled a wealth of inside knowledge to create a software suite that provides a full-circle data and image workflow along with a complete records management system to help your office streamline the process from inception to disposition or final judgment and on to archiving.
Serving Offices that Serve Justice
Verdict includes the following:
Criminal is designed to provide a data and image work flow to follow cases from inception through disposition and sentencing, and on to document archiving.
Civil is designed to provide a data and image work flow that will follow cases and advanced deposits from inception through disbursement and judgment and on to document archiving.
Jury is designed to manage precise, up-to-date records for the jury pool. Juror pools can be completely customized based on a combination of last service and last summons dates. Verdict Jury ensures random selection of jurors and provides meaningful reports for the Jury Commission to evaluate disqualifications or exemption claims. The Verdict Jury module has the capability for printing subpoenas, juror cards, labels, and checks. The Verdict Jury module operates according to the assumption that all registered voters are placed in what can be referred to as a “Population Pool”. Additional prospects for the pool are also solicited by the DMV driver licenses. A random selection by type of jury can occur at any time.
Probate is a new software system that can replace cumbersome register of wills state books. It is a streamlined, electronic system that tracks all the information that comes into the probate office daily. One of the biggest time savers this offers is no longer having to mail inheritance tax receipts. Verdict has made it possible to submit electronic inheritance tax receipts automatically to the state.
