Leading UK court technology innovator Digital Courtrooms (www.digitalcourtrooms.co.uk) is now available as a supplier on G-Cloud 8, the Crown Commercial Service's procurement framework for Cloud based computer services, hosted via the Digital Marketplace.
The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) works with both departments and organisations across the whole of the public sector to ensure maximum value is extracted from every commercial relationship and to improve the quality of service delivery. The CCS goal is to become the “go-to” place for expert commercial and procurement services.
The Digital Courtroom solution is a complete software and service package, which provides all the necessary tools required to digitise the UK court system. By eliminating paper-based practices, the Digital Courtrooms solution enables court processes to be streamlined, significantly reducing costs, removing the stress of missing files and greatly boosting efficiency.
The solution combines services from three leading legal technology organisations: ProjectFusion with its secure Data Room system, Zylpha’s with its widely acclaimed e-bundling technology and technical support from South London Legal Partnership. Digital Courtrooms has already proved itself to be a success in a mainstream family court environment at both the West London and Central London Family Courts.
Project Fusion’s Data Room provides a simple to use virtual interface, which delivers a secure digital space protected by the latest security technology. Zylpha’s widely acclaimed digital e-Bundling software eliminates the strain of creating and maintaining paper court bundles and removes the risk of lost documents. The digital bundles can be updated, repaginated and distributed safely in a matter of minutes – a process that previously took many hours to complete. The final element is a high quality support programme, supplied through South London Legal Partnership, the shared legal services operation for Kingston, Merton, Sutton and Richmond councils.
Commenting on the news, Zylpha’s CEO Tim Long said, “The Digital Courtrooms service has received a great deal of interest, regarding its combined solutions, from both the UK Court system and related government bodies. Naturally, therefore we are extremely happy to be part of G-Cloud 8, which provides central government departments, executive agencies and UK Courts with a rapid and cost effective method of accessing and purchasing government approved IT Cloud products and services. We look forward to identifying and assessing those areas of the Court System where the Digital Courtrooms services can work best.”
Digital Courtrooms is a partnership between Zylpha, ProjectFusion and South London Legal Partnership. It provides a solution that enables UK courts to digitise existing manual systems for the distribution of court bundles.
Digital Courtrooms makes it easier to get legal information (regardless of file type) to the correct people, at the right time and with significant financial savings. In doing so, it eliminates the need for overly expensive computer systems or prolonged training courses and is already in use across multiple courts and local authorities since its launch in early 2016.
