Journal Technologies & JustWare

In 1992, New Dawn started in a spare bedroom with a developer creating a case management solution for a statewide government customer. Since that original version, we have added extensive functionality and released versions of JustWare for all types of courts and justice agencies. We have also released our Adaptive Case Management solution that is configurable for all types of government agencies. We maintain a 98% customer retention rate, which includes the first customer to ever purchase JustWare.

In December 2012, New Dawn joined Sustain Technologies and ISD corporation combining our strengths and experience with the mission to delight our customers under the ownership and guidance of the Daily Journal Corporation senior leadership. The Daily Journal Corporation (DJCO) is the publicly held publisher of the Los Angeles and San Francisco Daily Journal and numerous other publications serving the legal industry.  In 2015, Sustain Technologies and ISD Corporation merged into New Dawn Technologies thus becoming Journal Technologies, Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of the Daily Journal. With more than $180 million in cash and marketable securities, the Daily Journal brings the financial stability to allow Journal Technologies to be strategic and agile in market and product decisions. The Daily Journal also brings the executive leadership of Charlie Munger, the chairman of the Board.  Mr. Munger is also the Vice Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway.  Journal Technologies supplies case management software to courts, prosecutors, public defenders, probation and other justice agencies. We serve over 500 courts and agencies in 42 states.
