Dallas, February 7, 2008 - Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) announced today that it has signed a contract to implement its Odyssey system in Galveston County, Texas. Odyssey is Tyler's Web-based courts and justice solution for the state and local government market.
Galveston County is a member of the Texas Conference of Urban Counties (CUC) and will adopt several Odyssey applications under the software license agreement signed in 2006 between Tyler and the CUC. Galveston County has separately contracted with Tyler for implementation and other professional services in this new agreement, which is valued at approximately $2.7 million.
In 2006, the CUC selected Odyssey in a $12.4 million software license agreement. The agreement gave existing CUC members the right to adopt Tyler's Odyssey Case Manager and Odyssey Prosecutor software applications. The agreement also gave CUC members that adopt the court management system access to other applications in Tyler's Odyssey suite of applications, such as Law Enforcement, Jail Manager and Check Manager.
The CUC is a non-profit organization composed of 34 member counties representing nearly 80 percent of the population of Texas. The CUC supports and coordinates communications among member counties, studies policies and programs of the State of Texas that affect urban counties, advocates county issues, primarily at the state level, and provides training and educational programs appropriate for urban county officials. All services and activities are pursued for the benefit of the people of Texas.
Located on the plains of the Texas Gulf Coast in the southeastern part of Texas, Galveston County is part of the Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown metropolitan area and its population is approximately 284,000. Galveston purchased Odyssey Case Manager, Odyssey Prosecutor, and Odyssey Check Manager to create an integrated courts and justice system. Implementation will begin first with Odyssey Case Manager in Galveston's Probate Courts.
"We are pleased to welcome Galveston County as a new Tyler courts and justice client. Through our agreement with the Texas Conference of Urban Counties, as well as contracts with other counties and states, Odyssey is rapidly becoming the gold standard in courts and justice systems not only in Texas but across the country," stated Dustin Womble, Tyler Technologies' executive vice president.
