IT consulting firm Modis has won a $203,000 contract to provide software maintenance for the NSW Department of Justice’s (DoJ) jury management system (JMS).
The Australian professional staffing and solutions specialist will also act as the official reseller for the system, developed by the Courts & Tribunal Services NSW (CaTS), following a tender process.
The reseller deal will allow every court jurisdiction in Australia and abroad to buy the cloud-based solution to help speed up and manage the selection and activities of juries.
“Modis is excited to add this unique cloud-based solution to our solution portfolio and we will ensure the JMS continues to optimise the jury management selection process by streamlining and automating the selection activities and improving service quality and efficiency,” said Peter Hawkins, solutions and innovation practice lead at Modis.
Launched in 2014, the $4.2 million self-service platform allows jurors to have their own personal online profiles on which they can update details, apply to be excused from jury duty, nominate dates they are not available or request court attendance reminders.
“The JMS improves stakeholder engagement, is a digital platform to remove manual processes, and in return will provide a process and cost saving to court jurisdictions worldwide," said Byron Rudenno, executive general manager for sales and consulting services at Modis.
The contract comes one year after Modis rebranded itself from Ajilon Australia in an effort to promote itself as a global player in the technology professional staffing and solutions space.
Part of Adecco Group, a human resources solutions provider, the company has offices in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
