Northern Ireland Court Service (NICtS) - Integrated Court Operation System (ICOS) – Period of Association > 17 years
The Northern Ireland Court Service (NICtS) provides administrative support for Northern Ireland courts and certain tribunals. NICtS was hampered by existing business systems that consisted of over 30 fragmented databases and hundreds of manual and paper-based processes. Fujitsu was awarded a contract with the NICtS for the ongoing development and management of its IT infrastructure, corporate applications and courtroom technology. As part of the agreement Fujitsu was also tasked to design and implement an Integrated Court Operation System (ICOS) that would standardise and automate its business processes, improve resource management and be accessible by all court users. The design and implementation of ICOS included support for online services, wider justice integration and new courtroom technologies.
ICOS application developed by Fujitsu provides comprehensive case lifecycle management from initiation through to disposal and appeal, including access to a full case history and the integrated creation and control of all documents, such as initiating, procedural and evidential documents, results/court orders, warrants and notices. To manage any fees and fines, ICOS supports payment over the telephone by debit/credit card, Chip and Pin integration and the electronic processing of credit transfers and is also fully integrated with the Accounts system and performs an automatic bank reconciliation.
Before commencing development, Fujitsu worked closely with NICtS to ensure that it fully understood the business drivers and requirements for the new application. Its look and feel was then developed using a workshop approach to maximise commonality, while also accommodating the unique working practices of each court system.
