Pulaski County to Keep Current Court Software

Pulaski County’s court system will keep using its current software for at least the next few years.

Earlier this month, the county commissioners were asked to consider switching to the Odyssey case management system. The change would bring Pulaski County in line with most of the rest of the state and would also save the county $25,000 a year.

But County Clerk Christi Hoffa told the commissioners this week that county officials have since learned that it would be two or three years before the switch could be completed. That means the county will have to stick with the CSI system they’ve been using.

While the change would have brought Pulaski County in line with most of the rest of the state, Hoffa and other county officials had several concerns. For one thing, new computers would need to be purchased, and the county’s Internet service would need to be upgraded. The switch would also delay the implementation of e-filing, which has to be in place by the end of next year. Hoffa also said other county clerks who use Odyssey have been unhappy with the company’s tech support.
