Increase Jury Satisfaction
CourtFunds creates a win-win situation for your court and your jurors. Jurors can choose their preferred fund retrieval method – a bank transfer, gift card, prepaid debit card, PayPal, charity donation and more. Let your jurors use funds in a manner most suited to them for the best consumer experience.
Provide Relentless Customer Support
Once your jurors receive their prepaid debit cards, customer support is on us. CourtFunds comes with a 24/7 IVR system for cardholder support and live customer service. Instead of dealing directly with your court, jurors can access their online account for real-time reporting on their card activity.
Modernize Your Court
Courts are often reluctant to adopt new technology which deprives your staff from the benefits of automation. CourtFunds brings your court to the forefront of digital innovation and modernizes manual outgoing payments. By implementing an electronic payment platform, our clients operate with frictionless disbursements and win the Court Innovation of the Year award.
Avoid Check Fraud
Over 70% of issued checks experience fraud. CourtFunds prevents you from becoming another statistic by digitizing outgoing payments. When you swap stuffing envelopes for an electronic platform, you ensure the disbursements will be delivered to your jurors in a matter of minutes without any fraud.
Save Court Budgets
Relying on time-consuming checks comes with unnecessary expenses. By switching to digital disbursements, prepaid debit cards, and electronic gift cards, your court can save roughly $7.78 per load. CourtFunds leaves no chance for check fraud and eliminates the expense of returned or uncashed checks.
Identify Accounting Errors Faster
Get a 360 view of your accounts. CourtFunds streamlines regular bank reconciliations to spot accounting errors and investigate discrepancies faster. Our platform ensures accurate and efficient accounting activities, free from manual, error-prone practices. Maintaining the quality and accuracy of financial data at your court is easier with CourtFunds.
Unclaimed funds won’t go unnoticed. At a glance, you can monitor when payments were issued and what their claim status is. CourtFunds prevents escheatment by closing out uploads and reconciliation once the payment is made. In case escheatment occurs, the CourtFunds team takes the burden off your court and handles the complex processing.
Streamline Court Processes
CourtFunds takes the hassle out of jury disbursements by automating complex, tedious processes. You can upload disbursement files using a web portal or SFTP and get instant reports on all of your accounts in real-time. Because we transfer funds electronically, you can have immediate reconciliation at your fingertips.
Seamless Process Change
The implementation of CourtFunds in your court is a breeze. We ensure that the platform setup, thorough testing and end-to-end team training occurs within weeks, not months. We launch CourtFunds quickly and efficiently, leaving the burdensome process of cutting checks in the past.
Go Paperless. Go Green
In one year, the average office uses over 10,000 sheets of paper. Together, American offices are responsible for nearly 4 million tons of copy paper per year. The checks issued by courts are adding up to the overconsumption. With CourtFunds, you are setting a green standard for other courts to follow and helping to save millions of trees each year.
Simplify Intra-county Disbursements
Manual payments slow down the cooperation between different departments within your county. CourtFunds replaces time-consuming checks with robust electronic payments that instantly reach the department you have intended. With an electronic payment system taking over disbursements, you can spend time on fostering communication with colleagues in your county.
Prepare for Successful Reelection
CourtFunds becomes your best ally in leaving a lasting impression on your jurors. Provide a personalized gratitude to jurors who may cast a vote for you in the future. CourtFunds offers several options to express your appreciation for jurors’ duty and keep you top-of-mind during the next election.
