SMS information system has been fully supported by all the public authorities in Turkey. It was awarded for annual e-government prize of Turkey in 2008 in the category of providing public services from government to citizens. This award was given to SMS information system for enhancing the quality of judicial information services for the public, creation of transparent and efficient administration of justice and the contribution for the transformation of information society. In the near future it would be possible to transfer this system to other EU member countries. Achieving this goal will result in swift informing of services for the people of the EU about the legal processes happening in different countries. Compared with cross-border delivery of information in conventional courts, access to information in the courts supported by mobile phones will be less costly, easier and more convenient for both parties.
