Supreme Court of the Federated States of Micronesia Modernizes with OnBase by Hyland

Celebrating a milestone in its history, the Supreme Court of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) today unveiled its OnBase by Hyland enterprise content management (ECM) solution, which makes case files easily accessible and searchable from four geographically separated island states. The Court also needed to streamline and better track cases as they moved through the judicial system. The solution delivers on several goals the Court had set for itself in its five-year Strategic Plan through 2017.

After working with its technology contractor Data Management Resources (DMR) to build a virtual server environment, the Court then turned to DMR, also an OnBase Authorized Solution Provider, to design an OnBase system that would provide the Court with the ability to assign cases electronically, route motions to assigned justices, and track the case status of Civil cases.

'But this is just the beginning,' said Chief Justice Dennis K. Yamase. 'We are already planning the next stage of our modernization using OnBase. The next step is to provide a public access portal so that private attorneys can search our public case documents. We are glad that we found a system that will help us realize our strategic goals as this Court matures, and we are pleased to be working with a seasoned technology partner here in the Pacific to help us meet our goals.'

Based in Guam, a U.S. Territory, DMR has been providing technology solutions since 1980, and has been an OnBase solution provider since 2010.

'It is exciting to see these milestones in the history of our Pacific Island nations,' said DMR CEO Richard Taitano. 'Technologically speaking, not too long ago Guam was where the FSM is now. However, the FSM has the advantage of being able to make technological leaps over months and years instead of decades because of solutions like OnBase.'

'More importantly, the staff and management of the FSM Supreme Court were open to these advancements in their processing, which is usually the biggest hurdle when introducing new technologies to an organization. It was refreshing to work with such a forward-thinking group who were committed to a specific vision and who remained open to new ideas.'
