CourtCall, a provider of remote video court hearing technology, has developed what it considers an economical alternative to platforms that require software downloads such as Zoom, Skype and Webex, according to a press release.
CourtCall is browser-based and does not require downloads to court or law firm networks. Sessions are passcode protected and multiple parties cannot participate on a set of shared codes. Scheduling is provided and caucus rooms are activated in real-time to replicate the court and legal environment for private communications while integration with Docusign allows for the immediate and in-platform execution of orders, stipulations and agreements. CourtCall has the elements to support the workflow of judges and attorneys.
“As just one example, for smaller communities, we can provide fully remote video arraignment services between a courtroom and a CourtCall customized detention facility kiosk for $1,200.00 per month — often less than the cost of transportation of inmates for one day, saving a community hundreds of thousands of dollars each year,” Bob Alvarado, CEO of CourtCall, said in the press release. “Of course, we are also scaling those systems to suit dozens of courtrooms in larger communities. In our 25 years of service to the courts and legal community, we have tailored our service to every situation imaginable and continue to enable courts to make audio or video remote appearances a part of every element of their daily work from civil, family, criminal, juvenile and mental health matters to fully remote trials, settlement conferences, arbitrations and mediations.”
