Court Calendar Kiosk

The United States Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania sees a high volume of cases with each case lasting a short time. In order to keep the flow moving smoothly, it is important to provide information to upcoming participants so that they know what is currently occurring in the court, and when their case is going to be coming up. The United States Bankruptcy Court contracted Flipside to create an on-site kiosk-based system to provide real-time information about the current and upcoming cases. The system included a backend server running Node.js that received data from the court's internal scheduling system in an XLM data format. The server then rendered out a high-resolution page listing the day's cases, which was displayed on a 55" HD monitor. Additionally, Flipside created interactive touchscreen kiosk interface that allowed participants and lawyers to search for their upcoming case and retrieve pertinent information.
