MCIS 2.0

MCIS 2.0 Project - 1 Page Overview

Seattle Municipal Court is replacing our legacy municipal court information system, MCIS, with a modern and adaptable case management solution that will increase accessibility and improve court business processes. We will implement technology that meets the business needs of the court and our broader criminal justice community.

In development for several years, MCIS 2.0 officially kicked off in 2016 when SMC began evaluating its options and developed a business case to secure funding. A new system could launch as early as 2020. Organizational change management has been integrated within the project to support court staff through the change. 

A competitive solution selection process in Phase 1 resulted in the selection of Thomson Reuters (TR) as our preferred vendor. TR's case management solution is called C-Track and was the best fit for SMC. TR is proposing to integrate C-Track with cFive (focused on probation services) and SMC's current jury management system.

MCIS 2.0 is co-sponsored by Seattle Municipal Court and City of Seattle Information Technology.
