Jury2018Plus Jury Management System is the most advanced, integrated jury management system available. Because no two courts are alike, Jury2018Plus, the most comprehensive Jury Management System on the market today, is designed to match each court’s unique requirements. By working closely with each and every jurisdiction since 1982, we have a unique and thorough understanding of the many different court processes. Jury2018Plus makes extensive use of user-defined tables, which allow courts to customize the application to their own environments and business practices.
Referencing my many conversations with the NCSC, there are three prominent companies in jury management. I have reviewed and researched all three, as well as receiving quotes. I find the best in price, technology, capability and service is clearly Judicial Systems, Inc. out of Tyler, Texas.
