Tyler Technologies Signs Municipal Court Software Contracts with Birmingham, AL and St. Louis County, MO

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL - News) announced today that it has signed contracts to implement Tyler’s INCODE municipal court case management solution at courts in the City of Birmingham, Alabama and St. Louis County, Missouri. The agreements, which include software licenses, as well as professional services, maintenance and support, are valued at nearly $1.6 million in total.

Under the agreements, both Birmingham and St. Louis County have invested in Tyler’s INCODE Court Case Management product to effectively manage municipal court cases and document processing. In addition, each will improve management of documents with the Tyler Content Management application.

Brett Cate, president of Tyler’s INCODE solutions, believes these contracts point to Tyler’s strong reputation for providing municipal courts with a solution to meet their specific needs. “Tyler has proven its ability to meet the needs of court systems throughout the United States. Our INCODE court solution is fully integrated and customizable. We are pleased to provide the municipal courts in St. Louis County and the City of Birmingham with the technology required to improve services to the public and achieve optimal operating efficiency,” he stated.

Renee Hines-Tyce, court administrator for St. Louis County, commented on the County’s decision to invest in Tyler’s INCODE court solution. “We expect Tyler’s INCODE court solution to increase our court case processing productivity and improve functionality in court operations. Implementing Tyler’s solution will enable e-court initiatives, including enhanced customer service, Web self-service, Web payments, and document filing. It will also facilitate e-communication between St. Louis County departments,” she explained.

Hines-Tyce stated that Tyler’s INCODE court solution will replace many of the St. Louis County Municipal Court’s paper-oriented processes through the use of e-forms and document imaging. She believes the solution will provide an increased Web presence for easier access to general court information and specific case related information. As a result, Hines-Tyce anticipates that implementation, which currently has an October target date for going live, will increase the overall accuracy and timeliness of information provided to court customers.

A client of Tyler’s Appraisal & Tax solution since 1981, St. Louis County initially purchased a mainframe system before investing in appraisal software in 1998. The County purchased iasWorld software in 2003 to effectively manage assessment data and administration. More recently, St. Louis County has added several assessment administration productivity tools, in addition to choosing Tyler’s MUNIS financial management solution. St. Louis County covers 524 square miles and is home to one million residents, making it the most populous county in Missouri. A part of the St. Louis metropolitan region, Clayton is the county seat.

According to Bettye M. King, court administrator for Birmingham Municipal Court, Birmingham’s Municipal Court Selection Team, which was charged with evaluating and choosing the new court case management system, decided to invest in Tyler’s INCODE court solution because it provides the functionality the Birmingham court system requires without the need for extensive customization. “The INCODE solution will replace the City’s legacy system, which requires extensive data entry and a programmer to make modifications. The ability of Tyler’s INCODE system to interface with the Police Department and e-citations, as well as Traffic Engineering and handheld parking tickets factored into our decision to purchase Tyler’s solution,” she stated.

King believes implementation of Tyler’s INCODE court solution will facilitate operations. “We appreciated Tyler’s INCODE system’s ability to provide greater flexibility related to the handling of court operations, collections, warrant issuance and service, data entry, posting of cases and scheduling. Additionally, Tyler’s document management and workflow capabilities appealed to us. These features will enable the City’s court system to achieve paperless status, as well as improve electronic retrieval and dissemination of records, leading to greater operating efficiency,” she explained.

Situated at the base of the Appalachian Mountains, Birmingham is Alabama’s largest city and is home to approximately 234,000 residents. It was founded in 1871 and is the county seat for Jefferson County.
