Monroe County, Wisconsin, Signs SaaS Agreement for Tyler Technologies’ ERP
County chooses integrated Munis system to enhance functionality and reporting
PLANO, Texas -- May 7, 2014
Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) has signed a seven-year software as a
service (SaaS) agreement with Monroe County, Wisconsin, for Tyler’s Munis^®
enterprise resources planning (ERP) solution to replace the county’s legacy
financial software system. The agreement includes related professional
services, training and support.
Monroe County will implement multiple Munis applications, including financial
and human capital management applications, which will enhance the county’s
reporting capabilities and access to information for employees, elected
officials and citizens.
The county’s competitive review focused on finding a cloud-based ERP solution
from a vendor who doesn’t rely on third-party hosting services — Tyler hosts
and manages its SaaS-based solutions from its data centers in Texas and Maine.
Another key Monroe County requirement was for a Web- and Windows-based ERP
solution that includes paperless document management, like Munis does.
By having Munis delivered via the SaaS model, Monroe County can reduce upfront
capital costs, IT personnel costs, license fees and hardware costs.
Additionally, because Munis is available anytime and anywhere, the county will
improve accessibility and provide network access for departments that
currently don’t have access.
“Munis met Monroe County’s very specific ERP solution needs, and we are
pleased they selected Tyler to help enhance functionality, service and
transparency,” said Chris Hepburn, senior vice president of Tyler’s ERP &
School Division. “The SaaS model provides our clients with Munis’ modern
technology without requiring an investment of upfront capital or a large IT
team to manage servers and other related infrastructure. Tyler looks forward
to working with Monroe County for many years to come.”
Monroe County is located in southwest Wisconsin and has about 45,000
residents. The city of La Crosse also uses Munis, and Portage County,
Wisconsin, recently chose to implement Munis as well.
