WASHINGTON–Avenu Insights & Analytics (“Avenu”), a leading provider of revenue recovery and administrative solutions for state and local governments, announced today that it has acquired Judicial Innovations.

Avenu is a portfolio company of Arlington Capital Partners (“Arlington”), a Washington, D.C.-area private investment firm specializing in government regulated industries.
“With Judicial Innovations’ technology, we’re set to redefine what’s possible in the GovTech space, enhancing our ability to support government operations with innovative solutions. We look forward to welcoming Jarrett Gorlin and the entire Judicial Innovations team.”
Headquartered in Alpharetta, GA, Judicial Innovations is a provider of cloud-based payment and case management solutions for state and local government agencies. With over 180 customers, Judicial Innovations delivers an end-to-end solution that helps streamline payments and case management for the probation, court, and traffic end markets, resulting in cost savings, maximized efficiency and an enhanced user experience.
