About us

Who We Are

Over 30 years ago, Marquis Software’s founder, Ed Fishback, led the way in enterprise-wide automation of corrections software. Since then, we’ve pioneered data tracking for offenders from jail to prison to community supervision. Our comprehensive Electronic Offender Management Information System (eOMIS™) is considered to be the best on the market.  Now, we are leading the way again by integrating Electronic Health Records (EHR) management into correctional system operations. With tighter budgets and even more scrutiny over large state projects…shouldn’t you consider a trusted, proven software from a company touting over 350 years of combined experience on its staff?

Experience Marquis Software for yourself.
