Plano-based Tyler Technologies Inc. (NYSE: TYL) has acquired Courthouse Technologies (CHT), an industry-leading provider of jury management systems. CHT will complement and elevate Tyler’s software offerings for domestic and international court clients, the company announced in a news release.
“The acquisition of Courthouse Technologies strengthens Tyler’s courts and justice portfolio to better serve our clients and their communities,” says Lynn Moore, president, and chief executive officer of Tyler. “In our view, CHT is the strongest solution for jury management in the market, and we look forward to enabling courts to make their jury operations more efficient.”
Founded in 2005, CHT was the first company to develop a commercial-off-the-shelf web application for jury management.
Today, it offers the industry’s only fully integrated, end-to-end software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution to manage all facets of juror management from source list generation to juror processing and payment.
The turnkey solution helps courts meet specific requirements and jury goals including optimizing workflow efficiencies, increasing juror yield, improving juror experience, and generating tangible cost savings.
“Courthouse and Tyler are both leaders in the courts and justice market,” says Scott Kerr, founder of CHT. “We are excited to become part of a larger company that shares our vision for technology in this space, our company culture, and our strong client retention rate. We look forward to seeing the positive impact we will make together to the courts and justice market.”
CHT’s solution serves court systems of all sizes and is used by a diverse client base spanning 60 U.S. counties across 18 states (including five statewide agreements), and two Canadian provinces.
Co-founded by Scott Kerr and Paul Arntsen, CHT is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, in Canada. CHT management and staff will become part of Tyler’s Courts & Justice Division and its current employees are expected to remain in the current office space in Vancouver.
Founder Scott Kerr will lead the business unit as general manager.
Tyler has more than 21,000 installations across 10,000 sites, with clients in all 50 states, Canada, the Caribbean, Australia, and other international locations. Tyler has achieved double-digit revenue growth every quarter since 2012. It was also named to Forbes’ “Best Midsize Employers” list in 2018 and recognized twice on its “Most Innovative Growth Companies” list.
