Shreveport, Louisiana Achieves Immediate Success with nCourt’s Traffic Violation Payments Service
Citizens Embrace New Payment System, Generating Significant Revenue and Cost Savings
Woodstock, GA, July 6, 2010 – nCourt, LLC, a leading national provider of electronic filing, traffic citation and other government ecommerce solutions that enhance court/ citizen interactions, today announced that the City of Shreveport, Louisiana has successfully implemented the company's electronic traffic and citation payments system. Having launched in early March, the city has already processed nearly 230 tickets online, leading to over $23,400 in collections from the nCourt system.
"We were amazed at the immediate benefits we have received with nCourt," said Virginia Hester, Clerk of Court/Judicial Administrator for the City of Shreveport. "We did not advertise the service right away, yet we had a tremendous number of payments come in as soon as we went live. Clearly this indicates people were proactively seeking out this type of convenience. What we found was that the majority of the initial payments came from overdue fines that were holding up people's ability to renew their drivers licenses or registrations. Also, our clerks noticed a marked decrease in courthouse traffic, which has helped take some of the pressure off day-to-day operations.”
Those who are facing a traffic violation citation simply visit www.ncourt.com and select Shreveport, Louisiana from the menu. The convenient, easy-to-follow system is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It enables payments to be made and confirmed within minutes, ensuring completion and avoiding further potential penalties. The nCourt service also provides a free, bilingual customer help center.
"The significant return Shreveport has already experienced is very exciting for us," said David Morris, CEO of nCourt. "The fact that people started taking advantage of the service before it was even publicized proves that what we are providing is a win-win for everyone. Our system dramatically increases the efficiency of court operations and offers convenience to the public, all while generating much-needed revenue."
In addition to Louisiana, nCourt also serves the eFiling and online payment needs of courts, cities, counties and their other revenue-generating departments for over 500 jurisdictions in 16 other states.
