Dallas, February 26, 2008 -- Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) announced today that St. Louis County, Missouri, has contracted to purchase its MUNIS financial management software solution. The agreement, valued at more than $4.6 million, includes software licenses and professional implementation services, as well as ongoing support and maintenance.
According to Glenn M. Pearl, County Administrative Processing System (CAPS) implementation director for St. Louis County, the County sought to migrate from its 25-year-old mainframe system to a fully integrated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution. "The St. Louis County CAPS program is focused on improving service to its constituents, making information more accessible, managing documents electronically and enhancing business processes as a whole. With Tyler's MUNIS solution, we believe we can achieve these goals," he explained.
Richard Peterson, Jr., president of Tyler's MUNIS Financial Management Solutions agrees. "Tyler's MUNIS ERP system is an outstanding match for St. Louis County. The MUNIS applications they have invested in will not only keep data at their fingertips and help them improve customer service, but will also facilitate the management of documents. By taking advantage of Tyler's integrated solutions, the County can expect to improve its business operations and workflow," he said.
The County, which has purchased Tyler's MUNIS financial and human resource applications, will also benefit from the implementation of products such as Tyler Content Manager, MUNIS Self Service, MUNS Work Orders and Tyler Cashiering. Tyler Cashiering centralizes the collection process, creating a single point of entry for data from multiple applications. The scalable product is easy to navigate and features a virtual tape, which serves as an electronic version of the traditional receipt spool tape and provides a running tape of all batch activity.
"St. Louis County looks to benefit from the real-time reporting capabilities of the MUNIS system, as well as to increase our operational effectiveness and productivity through implementation of the solution. We appreciate the Web-enabled self-service features that will reduce staff time typically spent handling employee and vendor requests. The County's use of Tyler's document management solution will give us the power to electronically manage documents specific to the MUNIS system," said Pearl.
St. Louis County covers 524 square miles and is home to one million residents, making it the most populous county in Missouri. It is part of the St. Louis metropolitan region. The County has approximately 4,000 full-time employees. Clayton is the county seat.
