JIMS Jury Phone System

Handling juror telephone inquiries can be time-consuming and labor intensive. With the Juror Information Management System (JIMS), a significant reduction in the amount of time your staff spends responding to routine juror telephone calls can be realized. JIMS allows prospective jurors to obtain their qualification status and retrieve reporting information over the telephone 24-hours-per-day, 7 days-a-week. Jurors may respond to qualification questionnaires, reschedule their service date as well as being informed of up to the minute reporting instructions. With user defined parameters, within our Interactive Voice Response system, you take control of just how much latitude each prospective juror is allowed when requesting an excuse or reschedule of their service date. Using prerecorded voice files, the JIMS system can speak information to your potential jurors and prompt them to provide data needed to complete many of the routine telephone inquiries. Multiple Language Support is also available.

In my judgment, JIMS is a wise investment for any Jury Commission. It certainly makes our job easier. I highly recommend it to you.
