Washington, DC – July 13, 2017 – The Integrated Electronic Case Management System (IECMS) developed for the Government of Rwanda by Synergy received a prestigious 2017 Top Ten Court Technology Solution Award at the 8th International Conference organized by the National Association for Court Management and the International Association for Court Administration in Washington, DC.
The conference theme, “Excellence on a Global Scale”, reflects the commitment of both NACM and IACA to the worldwide improvement of the administration of justice. The conference brings together hundreds of judicial administration professionals, judges and technology companies around the world to network and share the experience on how to effectively overcome the challenges of the justice sector and strengthen the rule of law.
Rwanda’s Minister for Justice – Mr. Johnston Busingye welcomed the recognition, saying the system was designed and developed to match the country’s legal system.
“It is deployed in all courts and prosecutions across Rwanda. All court users access the courts through this system. The recognition validates our work and commits us to double our effort,” he said.
Rwanda IECMS is a sector-wide platform connecting all justice government institutions involved in the provision of justice, including Rwanda National Police, National Public Prosecution Authority (NPPA), the Judiciary, Rwanda Correctional Services, and the Civil Litigation Service. It is available nationwide and is utilized by thousands of Rwandans every day, improving access to justice and improving court efficiency. A case study of the IECMS has been published as part of the IACA Journal.
Synergy International Systems has been working on this project since 2015 after being selected by Ministry of Justice through an international competitive bidding.
