Faced with declining revenues, courts around the country are struggling to keep up with rising caseloads and increasing service requests from judges, attorneys and the general public. Many times, courts and clerks are handcuffed by court technology that is severely outdated and systems that are incompatible with the public or even with other departments within the court itself.

The Municipal Court in Montgomery, Alabama found a solution to these problems by contracting with PTG to install Benchmark, a paperless court management system that speeds public service, unifies court processes, and allowed the court to work within existing budget constraints while also providing a substantial long term return on investment.

One important consideration in selecting PTG was the company’s ability to also securely scan and upload old paper files into the new system, giving the court immediate electronic access to many past years of court case files, images, and documents.

"I’d like to thank the entire PTG team and staff that worked so diligently on our conversion and implementation. The process was far more seamless than I could have imagined. Moreover, the gains in efficiencies were immediate, resulting in real time decreases in manpower costs. Again, Thank you" said Kenneth H. Nixon, Jr., Court Administrator for the City of Montgomery.

"We were thrilled to be chosen by the Montgomery Municipal Court to bring paperless court technology to Alabama, and we look forward to also going live in the Hoover Municipal Court later this year" said Steve Rumsey, President of PTG. "Courts throughout Florida have proven the cost savings and efficiency gains of our Benchmark system, and we're excited about moving forward with new opportunities with courts in several other states”.
