File & ServeXpress Showcases Choice for Courts at eCourts Conference
In a time of shrinking budgets, File & ServeXpress offers courts a way to save time and money, no matter their size or solution design, with e-Filing solutions without software licensing fees.
IRVING, TEXAS – File & ServeXpress, a newly formed company that combined e-Filing pioneers File & Serve and CaseFileXpress, is featuring versatile e-Filing solutions for courts this week at the eCourts Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. With the CaseFileXpress and File & Serve products, File & ServeXpress offers a universally compatible e-Filing offering that can meet the needs of all sizes of courts and case types.
Whether a court wants a complete system that bolts onto its existing document and case management systems, is a small court that requires a lighter version that still communicates with its CMS or has interest in implementing an open EFM system, File & ServeXpress offers the choice without licensing fees.
“In the past, courts have been limited in their choice and in many cases have decided to invest in expensive, license-based solutions. That particular choice and expense is not necessary,” said Tammy Carter, Senior Director of File & ServeXpress. “In these tight budget environments, File & ServeXpress gives courts choices within one company that they have never had before.”
File & ServeXpress offers courts the opportunity to implement a solution that meets the needs of all stakeholders. From judicial, to court administrators, to all filers, File & ServeXpress offers a solution for all. With File & ServeXpress as a partner, courts can choose a multi-vendor model, a statewide model, an integration model or a large case solution. Courts can also choose how the system is implemented through transaction based fees, cost recovery or court investment. These options are available for the first time through one company.
Many e-Filing systems have excess financial costs associated with in-state and local filing, but utilizing File & ServeXpress provides ease of use for the courts by enabling File & ServeXpress to process court fees and deposits directly into the court’s bank account, provide reports for financial reconciliation and allow attorneys to pay for service through transaction fees.
The File & ServeXpress products enable attorneys and their staffs to e-File, e-Service and batch e-File multiple pleadings, while providing judicial and clerk document workflow tools. These workflow tools enable clerks to perform reviews on incoming documents and judges to easily rule upon documents and distribute orders and other judicial communications out to all the case parties. Filed documents are stored in PDF formats as well as native formats for ease of use. Additionally, File & ServeXpress solutions are supported with a help desk, 24/7, and because the solutions are hosted and run on an Internet browser, the court needn’t worry about keeping up with system requirements, software upgrades or being assessed high maintenance fees.
“As an extension to the court, File & ServeXpress offers the court significant cost reduction and improved efficiencies,” said Chris O’Clock, Senior Director of File & ServeXpress. “We believe the best use of the court resources is to focus on the judicial processes, access to justice, and business of the court while File & ServeXpress can provide the needed technology and fee collection capabilities. It really is the best investment courts can make.”
