MILLAR COMPANY, LLC is a software development company dedicated to helping Courts and Prosecuting Attorneys increase their revenue and enforce laws and ordinances.
The business began in 1988 focused on custom software development. Its early successes included software for a national real estate firm to track properties and potential buyers/lessees and a program for a radio group to create daily music play lists.
Because of demand for computer and network support, the Company created a subsidiary (Computer Partners) in November of 1989. Computer Partners serviced accounts throughout North and Central Alabama for more than twenty years until the subsidiary was sold in 2013.
In 1992, Millar Company was awarded the contract to develop worthless check recovery software for the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office in Birmingham, Alabama. The Company retained the rights to its worthless check software and soon began licensing the software to other circuits.
Later that year, the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office instituted an Alabama State pilot project to collect outstanding court costs, fines, restitution, and bail bonds. This was among the first Restitution Recovery programs in the nation. After Alabama enacted Court/Restitution Recovery legislation, Millar Company released its Court/Restitution Recovery and Bail Bond Recovery software to other customers in 1996.
Between 1996 and 2000, Millar Company released its Data Archival software and File Storage Management software for State Government. By the end of 2003, the Company’s Criminal Justice software was used by eleven Alabama counties.
Even through the expansions, Millar Company continued as leading-edge innovators in the development of software. In 2003, Millar Company began creating a new generation of Criminal Justice software using C#, Microsoft’s Visual Studio.net®, and Microsoft SQL Server. The Company’s new bad check recovery software module (called C-RAE®) was released in 2006; its new Court/Restitution collection and recovery module in 2008; and its Bail Bond Recovery module in 2009.
With the help of customers, the Company has continuously expanded, improved, and supported C-RAE and its modules. Since 2010, C-RAE has had six major and 372 minor revisions.
