-- Austin, Texas - November 15, 2012: MyFileRunner is pleased with the announcement of a new efiling platform. OCA, Office of Court Administration, signed an agreement with Dallas-based Tyler Technologies for its Odyssey File and Serve system, which will replace the current statewide e-filing system, Texas.gov, in September 2013. The new platform, Texfile, will reduce costs and increase convenience for filers and provide for expanded efiling in Texas. MyFileRunner will continue to provide customers with a paperless environment with added capabilities and convenience.
“Our customers will benefit from the new systems increased functionality,”
says Yvonne Johnson, Vice President MyFileRunner. “We look forward to making this transition with the new vendor Tyler Technologies. Their experience in creating efiling portals in other states gives us confidence in the new system.”
The transition will happen over the next 15 months and in all courts currently participating in Texas efiling. District and county clerks in more than 50 counties, covering more than 80 percent of the state’s population, currently allow efiling. Nine of the 14 appellate courts in Texas allow eFiling, while efiling is mandatory for attorneys filing documents in the Supreme Court of Texas.
According to Office of Court Administration, electronic filings in Texas are anticipated to grow from just over half a million filings to several million filings per year over the next several years.
