Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:TYL) has signed a seven-year software-as-a-service (SaaS) contract with the Fayette County Board of Education, in Fayetteville, Georgia, for Tyler’s Munis(R) enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. The agreement includes hosting services, support, training and related professional services.

The board of education sought to replace its legacy system with an integrated ERP solution for the collection, processing, reporting and analysis of key administrative information across the district. They wanted a solution that would manage their core operations, including finance, budget, school-level accounting, procurement, human resources and payroll. Additionally, they needed software that would interface with other internal software to ensure consistent data throughout the organization.

The Fayette County Board of Education chose Munis for its modern technology with features such as online, real-time and Web-based access to information along with complete integration throughout the Munis software. Munis also delivered on the board of education’s need for a system that is flexible, easy to maintain, reduces paper flow and is cost-effective to operate. Tyler’s track record of successful Munis implementations in K-12 school systems also played a key role in the board of education’s decision.

The cloud-based Munis solution enhances the board of education’s cost-effectiveness by enabling its technical staff to free up their time for other projects across the county. Fayette County will benefit from Tyler’s evergreen perpetual licensing approach that provides regular and significant, yet manageable, software enhancements without an additional relicensing or service fee, ensuring all systems are using the latest technology.

With 3,200 employees, the Fayette County Board of Education is the county’s largest employer; it serves more than 20,000 students in 24 schools across the communities of Brooks, Fayetteville, Peachtree City, Tyrone, and Woolsey.
