JIS MiCOURT Rollout Begins
Legacy Systems Retirement Looms
The new MiCOURT case management system will eventually replace CCS, DCS, PCS and TCS systems.
The implementation of MiCOURT in the 29th Circuit Court in Clinton County began in May of this year. The migration of the next eight circuit courts is planned for 2015, with 20 more courts in 2016 and the remaining in 2017. Based on the rollout plan, all courts currently using CCS will be migrated to MiCOURT by October 2017. Once the CCS migration is completed, the other JIS legacy systems will be retired as follows:
PCS application – January 2019
DCS application – March 2021
TCS application – May 2021

MiCOURT (Formerly known as MiCS)
In coordination with the latest software update, JIS has rebranded its Case Management system as MiCOURT. Formerly known as MiCS, the MiCOURT name will help JIS transition the 251 courts currently using JIS case management systems to the new application.
The new application name and new JIS logo are two initial pieces of the MiCOURT rollout plan. Currently in use in Berrien County for civil cases and by the Court of Claims, the 29th Circuit Court in Clinton County will implement MiCOURT in 2014. Starting with circuit courts, the JIS team will be ramping up implementations to eight in 2015, 20 in 2016 and more than 40 the following years.
You will begin to see MiCOURT replace references to MiCS, beginning with communications and the website. These changes will continue through the software and previously created documents.
New system implementing in Circuit Courts
MiCOURT is the new combined case management program for Circuit, District and Probate courts. Features of the previous JIS case management applications, as well as many new features, combine to create MiCOURT
Beginning with Circuit courts in 2014 and 2015, the updated implementation process will allow for multiple simultaneous projects. The implementation projects will continue ramping up to a peak of 50 courts transitioning annually.
