Finnish Legal Register Centre chooses TietoEVRY to digitalize case management for courts and prosecutors
01 September 2021
Finland’s Legal Register Centre has chosen TietoEVRY as its partner for maintaining and developing the Material Bank System (AIPA) of the National Prosecution Authority and general courts. The aim is to enable agile and efficient digital ways of working for courts, and to offer citizens better and faster services when dealing with judicial authorities.
TietoEVRY has won the competitive tendering for the maintenance and development services of the Finnish National Courts Administration’s Material Bank System (AIPA). Through the project, the National Prosecution Authority and general courts will transition to using only digital working methods. The high-quality function of the AIPA system plays a critical role in making the day-to-day operations of courts and prosecutors function smoothly.
“Efficient digital ways of working speed up the processes of courts and facilitate the lives of citizens. Reliable and smooth document and case management lead to, for instance, faster court processes and thereby improve the legal protection of citizens,” says Pasi Kumpula, Director at the National Courts Administration’s Development Department.
The working methods of courts are supported by the new information system entity, which digitally handles all functions related to judicial proceedings – from the moment proceedings become pending, to solving and archiving the case. The system also enables cross-governmental digital co-operation with other authorities.
“AIPA is one of our spearhead projects. The high-quality and smooth production, maintenance and development of the system play a critical role in the day-to-day operations of Finnish courts,” says Unto Kariniemi, Branch Manager at the Legal Register Centre’s Information System Services.
“This co-operation within the AIPA expands our good and long partnership with the Legal Register Centre. We are proud that we can participate in developing smoother citizen and governmental services, and promote the digitalisation of society,” says Petteri Äijö, Client Executive at TietoEVRY.
The agreement is valid on an ongoing basis and its total value is approximately EUR 14 million over six years.
