Improving the speed and efficiency of the UK justice system has been a key objective for the government for the past 5 years, with the task of finding 15% savings on everyday expenditure and 50% reduction of back-office functions by 2020. However, by 2015, the length of court cases had in fact increased by 7% over the previous 4 years, showing a worrying trend that has continued to increase.
Recent research by the Ministry of Justice, Government think-tanks, and Accenture, looking at digital Justice and how speed and efficiency could be improved, has dubbed the use of Video Communication technology a key part of the answer to solving this challenge. Virtual courts for pre-trial and case-management could make major savings in police time, transport costs and custody resources, amongst much more.
