CaseLines and Iken, leaders in digital case management for Local Authorities, today announce their joint initiative to deliver integration to allow Iken clients to send evidence documents directly from Iken to CaseLines Digital Courtroom technology.
For Iken clients, CaseLines integration removes the need to save evidence documents locally prior to loading into CaseLines. Tanya Corsie, Chief Operating Officer at Iken, said “this initiative addresses current requests from our clients. By teaming with CaseLines we have solved for our clients the problem of sending case files securely to the Courts – this eliminates the cost and complexity of using secure email or shared storage solutions.”
David Jackson from CaseLines said, “this initiative will simplify the adoption of CaseLines and allow local authorities to move quickly towards digital working in the Courts, following the successful model adopted by the West London Family Courts and in the Crown Courts.”
The integration will be available to existing Iken clients in early 2018. Iken users will be able to create new cases in CaseLines automatically and then add evidence directly to the bundle from the associated case file in Iken. Once the bundle is finalised and ready for Court, users can invite court staff and judges, who then have the option of downloading an electronic copy securely, or using all the courtroom presentation tools CaseLines offers to conduct a paperless hearing in the Court.
Iken is the market-leading Case Management software provider for in-house legal teams in the UK Public Sector with almost 200 local authorities and half of all UK police forces in the UK using Iken each day.
