PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) has signed a contract with the city of Huntsville, Alabama, for Tyler’s Munis® enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, which will provide the city with a fully integrated financial and human resources system. The agreement includes related professional services, training and support.
Huntsville chose Munis because of its proven technology platform, system functionality that met the city’s technological requirements and Tyler’s success with other public sector clients.
Munis was reviewed as part of Huntsville’s plan to modernize and enhance numerous business systems and processes, as it worked to replace aging systems with leading-edge technologies that easily integrate with current IT platforms. As a comprehensive ERP system, Munis not only addressed the city’s functionality requirements, but it also met Huntsville’s high standards of service.
“Tyler’s Munis solution empowers the city to fully integrate key finance, budget and human resources functions and provide our employees with information-rich systems and business protocols that help them perform more efficiently,” said Huntsville Finance Director Randy Taylor. “With Munis, the city can begin to move away from the use of paper and utilize electronic processes to streamline business processes, which saves time and ultimately saves taxpayers money.”
In addition, the city valued Tyler’s evergreen philosophy, which includes future Munis updates as part of annual maintenance at no additional cost to Tyler clients.
“Newer technology is easier to maintain and is more dependable and secure than the older legacy systems we have been using for the past two decades,” said Huntsville Director of Information and Technology Services Bill Steiner. “Huntsville is a very forward-thinking, technology-oriented city, and we’re excited about our collaboration with Tyler. We gain a solid, functional system with offsite disaster recovery services that help minimize potential risk management issues.”
As part of its selection process, Huntsville also considered vendors’ longevity and financial stability.
“We were pleased to demonstrate Munis’ strong functional fit for the city of Huntsville, as well as explain how Tyler’s business model and financial strength makes us a solid, long-term partner for the city,” said Chris Hepburn, senior vice president of Tyler’s ERP & School Division. “Tyler provides clients with the same level of transparency that taxpayers expect, and it’s from that foundation of open communication that Tyler builds meaningful relationships that deliver value to municipalities and residents.”
Huntsville has more than 2,200 employees serving approximately 180,000 residents. The city is consistently ranked among the best places to live and work by national business publications, which often cite its high-tech and well-educated population. For decades, Huntsville has played an integral part of America’s space and defense industries, and it is home to the U.S. Army’s Redstone Arsenal, NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, and Cummings Research Park.
