PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) has signed a contract with Canada’s city of Kingston, Ontario, to implement Microsoft Dynamics® AX, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution with public sector functionality that Tyler Technologies jointly developed with Microsoft®. The contract includes software licenses, related implementation services, training and support.
Kingston conducted a competitive review process before selecting Tyler. The city will use Microsoft Dynamics AX to improve data-sharing capabilities, eliminate manual processes, improve access to information and follow financial management best practices. Kingston will also be able to access provincial and federal reporting within Microsoft Dynamics AX, as well as processing for the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). HST is in effect in five of the 10 Canadian provinces and is collected by the Canada Revenue Agency.
Built for the business of governments, schools and not-for-profit agencies, Microsoft Dynamics AX, with its out-of-the-box public sector capabilities developed by Tyler and Microsoft, includes core functions such as financials, project and cost management, supplier relationship management, and human resources management.
The city of Kingston has a population of 120,000 and spans 173 square miles. Two municipally owned utility companies, Kingston Hydro and Utilities Kingston, are included in the project.
For decades, Tyler has successfully developed, deployed and supported software solutions exclusively for the public sector. As part of the agreement between Tyler and Microsoft, Tyler is an authorized reseller of Microsoft Dynamics AX and delivers implementation, software support and other standard services.
