“Automated electronic processes free up our clerks to do more professional legal work, rather than simple administrative tasks,” said Yarden Yardeni, the project manager at Israeli Courts. “Now, they can use their time more effectively.”
At a glance, Israeli Courts can see how many cases are open, monitor the workload for each team and drill down to identify which cases are at which stage in the process.
“For the first time, we now have information about the status of all our cases and can monitor workloads,” Yardeni said. “This insight will allow us to allocate work to judges and clerks more effectively and process cases efficiently.”
The new case management process completely eliminates the need for courts to handle and file paper-based reports, forms and correspondence. Of the 100,000 new documents that enter the court system every day, 40,000 are received or generated electronically. The remaining 60,000 paper-based documents are now scanned on receipt and shared and stored electronically. This reduction in paper limits the need for storage space and filing cabinets in offices.
