Technology Experts for Courts & Justice
Courts are operating under severe economic pressures and facing increasingly complex workloads. Technology is a powerful enabler that can empower courts to meet core purposes and responsibilities despite economic limitations.

- Efficient justice
Harnessing the multitude of technologies and processes that operate within the different branches of justice and law enforcement organizations can be a challenging process. Sciens brings order to technology. Having worked with courts and law enforcement agencies worldwide, Sciens understands the entire process from the time the call is initiated at dispatch through adjudication.
Central to this vision are unified records management, and robust mobile technologies. We streamline forms and processes to eliminate redundancy or inefficiencies, and manage the implementation of state-of-the-art technologies. Working with law enforcement and court staff members, Sciens can assess each step of the justice process and identify opportunities for improvement.
Automation, records management & mobility
Our teams understand the justice process, and how information is captured and transferred to the courts. Records management systems and mobility are the cornerstone of workforce automation and information sharing. These robust technologies can improve the accuracy of data capture, and analytics after the event for accurate investigations. A seamless process from booking to court appearances is key to reducing errors, redundant efforts and operational costs.
Our experienced consultants offer insight into optimal processes and technology use. Automation solutions can expedite work flow between investigations and the District Attorney’s Office through digital case records. Managing jail occupancy efficiently enables people to move through the system faster, which reduces maintenance costs and limits potential security breaches. In the end, everyone benefits from swift, expeditious justice.
Lowering costs through consolidation
Budget constraints are pressuring jurisdictions to find ways to lower their operating expenses. Consolidating systems and processes is an effective approach to cutting costs and enhancing services. Although consolidation offers numerous benefits, it can also present challenges. Concerns about consolidation and new technologies can cloud perceptions and slow the opportunity for organizations to advance. Governance, funding, and control of the consolidated body can many times prevent adoption. But experience has shown that agencies with consolidated operations have greater access to federal and state grant funding.
Sciens collaborates with agencies to assess their current environments, examine the real value of any consolidation to each of the jurisdictions, and make recommendations based on information – not perception. Our consolidation plans include a budget, technology recommendation and timeline. More importantly, we support efforts to build a consensus for change.
