Alaska Court System Awards GeoNorth Appellate and Website Contracts
Anchorage, Alaska - GeoNorth, LLC, one of the country’s premier Information Technology solution providers headquartered in Anchorage, Alaska, has just been awarded a case management system contract from the Alaska Court System. Through a public and competitive RFP process, GeoNorth was awarded a project-based contract from the Court System to redesign their Appellate Court Case Management System into an updated version with enhanced features and functionality.
“GeoNorth took a very analytical look at the lengthy and detailed requirements the Alaska Court System had for this project and felt a custom approach to be their most cost effective solution,” says Bob Johnson, Sales and Marketing Manager. “No doubt there were numerous Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) solutions available to the Court System. However, when a client outlines very specific needs that must be fulfilled as the Court System did, COTS solutions typically address only a portion of those needs, leaving the client with not enough of what they want, and too much of what they don’t. The client then incurs additional, unnecessary costs; customization to account for areas the canned solution lacks, and paying for parts of the solution they don’t need, but can’t avoid because it’s part of a pre-packaged solution. In the case of this award, by offering the Court System a custom solution for the Appellate Court case management application, GeoNorth is able to provide them with only the features and functionality they asked for, and none of what they didn’t, equating to the most cost effective choice possible.”
The Appellate Court Case Management System contract is the second award the Alaska Court System has granted to GeoNorth in the past several months. In the summer of 2010 the Alaska Court System awarded GeoNorth a contract to redesign their website with updated and streamlined features and functionality, enhanced usability and accessibility for Court System staff, and a completely new look and feel.
