Working with Orange County judges and clerk through the end of 2012 into 2013, Odyssey went live on January 22, 2013. Beginning to track all court case and financial information in a case management system instead of on paper brings its own set of challenges, but Orange County users have risen to the occasion. Since there was no data to convert, users are playing ‘catch up’ in getting all open cases entered into Odyssey.
Over the past four months, JTAC has been working with three Indiana counties to deploy the Supervision module of the Odyssey Case Management System.
Over the past two months, JTAC has worked with two probation departments and one alcohol and drug program to implement Odyssey Supervision. The software has been deployed to 26 probation departments, 5 alcohol and drug programs and 4 drug court programs across the state. These agencies combined manage over 21,000 cases within the Odyssey Supervision product center.
On June 18, 2012, the five LaPorte County courts and the LaPorte County Clerk’s office began using the Odyssey Case Management System, after a weekend of data conversion. At the close of business on June 15th, JTAC began converting approximately 630,000 cases into Odyssey from the county’s legacy system.
On May 15, 2012 the Clark County Probation Department became the 23rd probation department in the state to begin using the Supervision component of the Odyssey Case Management System. Clark County is using separate Supervision modules for their probation cases, court alcohol and drug clients, drug court supervisions, and home detention clients. In just four weeks, the Clark County Probation Department has entered over 2,600 cases into Odyssey Supervision.
