Thriving urban environments need efficient legal systems that evolve to meet citizen needs and take advantage of technology trends. Microsoft CityNext solutions help city, municipal, and regional governments improve efficiency and reduce costs with solutions that take advantage of cloud, Big Data, mobile and social technologies.
Court and judicial management solutions based on Microsoft and partner technologies contribute to significant improvements in officer safety, decreased adjournments, more efficient processes, reduced backlog, and lower costs. The e-Justice solutions combine the benefits of the Microsoft platform and architectural frameworks with the industry and technology expertise of Microsoft partners worldwide. On-premises, cloud, and mobile technologies connect people and data, improve efficiency, and reduce error.
Court and judicial management solutions help collect, analyze, and circulate information across multiple jurisdictions, agencies, and organizations. These solutions adhere to jurisdictional standards, which helps simplify integration. For example, data collected by police is compatible with information applications and data used by attorneys, courts, jails, and prisons. The solutions integrate data and communication between multiple organizations throughout the complex judicial process.
Other features also increase efficiency, including improved case and records management, legal document storage, and archive practices. The new capabilities are a significant benefit in the document-intensive processes of criminal justice.
In addition, judicial management solutions such as in-court management systems can significantly improve processes for courts and prisons. These e-Justice solutions include public-facing portals, virtual courtrooms that take advantage of unified communications tools, mobile judges that use smartphones and other devices, and online contact or advisory centers.
Microsoft CityNext helps local governments streamline and improve court and judicial management with innovative solutions that connect data, people, and devices.
