Yakima County District Court has been working with Imagesoft to develop the OnBase system for management of documents and workflow processes in our Court. This project began over a year ago. Our objective in developing this new system is to gain greater efficiency in the processing of cases. Greater efficiency in court processing translates into overall cost savings, enhancement of our already excellent customer service and more services being made available to the public.
This project has had only one go-live date - July 26, 2016 and we expect to hit that target date. On July 26, 2016 OnBase will be operational in District Court. What that means is that any case filed after July 26, 2016 will be in an electronic format. Cases that were filed before July 26, 2016 will remain in a paper format. The public will be able to access our files in OnBase through a kiosk that will be available both in the Yakima and Grandview locations.
