Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:TYL) has signed an agreement with Franklin County, Ohio, for Tyler’s CLT Appraisal ServicesTM to conduct multiple appraisal and reappraisal projects. The agreement, valued at $12.3 million, includes services for the county’s 2017 sexennial reappraisal and new construction appraisals for 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Franklin County selected Tyler’s CLT Appraisal Services after a competitive review process. The county currently uses Tyler’s iasWorld(R) Computer-Assisted Mass Appraisal (CAMA) software solution and has previously used Tyler VerifyTM Street-Level Imaging services for the collection and verification of property in the county.

“Franklin County taxpayers can feel confident that our relationship with Tyler Technologies will allow for an extremely accurate appraisal of their home and business properties within the county,” said Franklin County Auditor Clarence Mingo. “Tyler’s use of innovative and cost-efficient technology will allow us to offer Franklin County residents a wide array of dynamic services that will continue to be beneficial to our county’s bottom line.”

CLT Appraisal Services staff will use tablet devices to verify and review data while working in the field during Franklin County’s appraisal services projects. The use of this mobile technology will help eliminate printing of documents and increase efficiencies by giving staff the ability to access and update data in iasWorld directly while standing on the property. Additionally, workflow functionality will eliminate many manual steps used to prepare documents, maps and property records in a traditionally paper-laden process.

Tyler’s CLT Appraisal Services – the country’s only national mass appraisal services company – has appraised more than 30 million parcels across 46 states.

“Franklin County is a technologically progressive county and they recognized that Tyler is the first in this industry to use integrated technology and services to make everyday appraisal tasks easier,” said David J. Johnson, president of Tyler’s CLT Appraisal Services. “The county’s continued investment in Tyler’s appraisal and tax solutions speaks to the professionalism and expertise of our staff, and the value provided by our products and services.”

Ohio state law mandates that property values be updated every three years. Franklin County has almost 450,000 parcels and is the state’s second-most populous county with 1.2 million residents.
