How Montana moved its codification process away from the mainframe

Before working with Propylon®, codification was complex and manual. Attorneys printed the Montana Code Annotated (MCA) on paper, marked it up, and hand-typed the statute into the mainframe. The goal was digitalization and modernization of the system and progress from paper-based processes.

Now staff can easily manage the workflow of changes and track the status of the bill. The solution has all but eliminated paper from the process and allows annotations to be completed in a third of the time.

You'll discover how:

  • The solution allows attorneys to collaborate in real-time, identify conflicts and enables consistency.
  • Codification is now completed in a timely manner
  • A perfect audit trail of changes ensures there is complete transparency over how a bill came to be in its final form.
