Two Global 360 Customers Selected As Finalists In 2011 Global Awards For Excellence In Adaptive Case Management
Los Angeles County Information Systems Advisory Body and the Pinellas County Clerk of the Circuit Court selected for demonstrating excellence in implementing innovative ACM solutions
Global 360, a leading provider of process and case management solutions, today announced that two of its customers, the Los Angeles County Information Systems Advisory Body (ISAB) and the Pinellas County Clerk of the Circuit Court, have been selected as finalists for the 2011 Global Awards for Excellence in Adaptive Case Management. Co-sponsored by the Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC) and KM World magazine, these awards recognize user organizations that have demonstrably excelled in implementing innovative adaptive case management (ACM) solutions.
Los Angeles County ISAB implemented a centralized, web-based DNA Offender Tracking System (DOTS) using Global 360's case management solution as the application platform. The DOTS system creates case folders for the estimated 1,200 daily criminal arrests, as well as for the more than 21,000 incarcerated inmates.
Los Angeles County ISAB now enjoys visibility and control over the third largest DNA database in the world. The DOTS system tripled the DNA collection rate while ensuring compliance with legal requirements. DOTS saves Los Angeles County law enforcement staff around 20 minutes for every DNA collection case they process. With Los Angeles County processing more than 1,200 criminal arrests every day, the result is an additional 400 hours of time a day that personnel can spend on other value-added activities.
DOTS tracks collections that enable payment from a state-provided reimbursement fund for every collection made. With each collection costing around $40 and an average 7,465 DNA samples collected every month, this automated payment method ensures that local law enforcement agencies quickly recover almost $300,000 in expenses every month with little to no manual effort.
Ali Farahani, Director, Integration Services, Los Angeles County ISAB, said, "Global 360's case management solution is the primary reason we have been successful with DOTS. It has a very clean design and a nice architecture. If you have to integrate with other products, Global 360's case management solution has one of the best APIs I have seen in any product and has great documentation. Our implementation has been very successful, deploying in a very short time. We received excellent support from Global 360."

The Pinellas County Clerk of the Circuit Court uses Global 360's case management solution to support them in making all court files and their supporting documents electronically available to all Pinellas County judges, lawyers, office staff, the public, and the entire county judicial system. Global 360's case management solution also enables Pinellas County to provide improved court file workflow, create an improved audit trail within the system, and comply with the state of Florida legislative mandate requiring them to support e-filing and make records publicly available via the Internet.
Going "green" and eliminating the need to handle, file, and route court files and paper documents has resulted in an annual savings potential in the millions of dollars. Improved information access has reduced lost or misplaced documents and files and improved collaboration and decision making. The robust search and retrieve functions enable case retrieval times to be decreased from days to seconds. The solution has delivered better business control for visibility and productivity across the legal system, workload balancing, and audit trails that meet operational and governance requirements.
Ken Burke, Clerk of the Circuit Court, Pinellas County, said, "Global 360 has changed the way work gets done at the Pinellas County Clerk of the Circuit Court's office by making us more efficient and more effective."
