North Texas city chooses integrated Tyler solutions to replace outdated, standalone systems
Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced that the city of Mesquite, Texas, chose its Incode® court case management and Munis® enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions to replace multiple standalone information systems, and to create efficiencies across the city's 16 departments. The agreement includes related professional services, training and support.
The city chose Tyler's integrated ERP and court case management solutions for their ease of use, broader functionality and deeper reporting capabilities, and expects to improve overall functionality and increase the number of users that interact with the systems. Incode and Munis are contemporary, long-term solutions for the city, which currently uses aging applications that in many cases are no longer supported by their providers.
The city will rely on Munis to produce easy-to-read and timely financial reports and eliminate poor integration between multiple financial systems that often result in duplicate data entry and redundant or irretrievable data. Munis will also replace the city's core financial accounting system whose limited abilities have been outgrown by the city's information needs.
Tyler's single-vendor solution enables the city of Mesquite to interface existing applications with Munis and Incode, thereby increasing efficiency, reducing data entry and lessening the risk of human error.
"Tyler is proud to partner with the city of Mesquite and deliver exactly the kind of broad ERP functionality that was central to the city's decision-making process," said Richard E. Peterson Jr., president of Tyler's ERP & School Division. "With Munis, the city will have a powerful, centralized financial system that helps streamline workflow while making it easier for employees to find, process, report and share financial information with the city's constituents."
"Incode is a proven partner to more than 450 courts in Texas and we believe that meant a lot during the selection process," said Brett Cate, president of Tyler's Local Government Division. "We look forward to delivering our court case management system to the city of Mesquite, and to helping the city, its courts and citizens quickly benefit from the productivity gains that come from using Incode."
The city of Mesquite, whose municipal court became a court of record in 2012, has about 1,000 employees and serves approximately 140,000 residents; it borders eastern portions of Dallas. The Mesquite Independent School District, with 39,000 students and 46 campuses, has been a Munis client since 2003.
