Court-Focused Technology Platform Comparison Guide

Resources / Technical Assistance Bulletin / Court-Focused Technology Platform Comparison Guide

As courts across the country adjust to the rapidly changing environment that COVID-19 has presented, the use of technology has become even more critical. The use of various modes of technology, including online video conferencing platforms has assisted courts with adapting to new ways of conducting hearings and remaining open during this pandemic. As courts work to re-open, technology will continue to play a critical role and be a valuable resource. This Court-Focused Technology Comparison Guide provides information on some of the most commonly used technology platforms but does not identify courts currently using each platform. This guide is not exhaustive, nor meant as an endorsement by the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ), and the platforms listed were selected based on their widespread use, security features, and accessibility.
