ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Winnebago County has initiated the system conversion activities to move to the “FullCourt Enterprise and FullCase Software”. We believe we have new systems that are stable and predictable that will run our business in the Courts, Circuit Clerk, Probation, Public Defender and State’s Attorney offices.
At this stage, conversion activities are running according to plan and we should be fully operational Monday, November 15, 2010 in the morning. We anticipate “bumps in the road.” At this time, we do not see anything that would cause us to reverse course.
Remember we are converting 1.8 million cases from the old system to the new which constitutes 110 million rows of data and over 2 million digital images. There have been over 500,000 lines of program code developed to accommodate Illinois Courts, the 17th Judicial Court, and local processes. We easily have over 50,000 labor hours invested and have integrated with many other systems (OffenderTrak, CitePay, Traffic School, Office of Illinois Courts, States Attorney, Public Defender, CAPS (citations, arrest warrants, orders of protection and sex offenders), Bottom Line (check printing), collections (multiple vendors), PostivePay (bank reconciliation), and VINES (Victim Information and Notification Everyday).
The primary purpose of this government initiative is to improve operational effectiveness and efficiency in the criminal justice process. More specifically – move cases more quickly through the system; improve fines and fees collection; continue to move Criminal Justice and Public Safety to paperless and streamlined processes; and control costs.
