City of Durham, North Carolina, Leverages Tyler Technologies Enterprise Resource Planning Solution to Win Finance Award

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL - News) announced today that its client—the City of Durham, North Carolina—recently earned an award for excellence in accounting and financial management.

Durham’s Department of Finance received the North Carolina State Treasurer’s Governmental Award for Excellence in Accounting and Financial Management for its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) achievements. The honor aims to encourage local governments throughout the state to improve their accounting and financial management practices. The state determines awards for several categories based on population, including three for municipalities, two for counties and three for school districts. It also grants one award for special districts or public authorities.

According to Keith Hermann, interim director of the City of Durham’s Department of Finance, Tyler’s MUNIS system has enabled City employees to be more efficient and provide better customer service to Durham residents. “By receiving this prestigious award, it further illustrates to our citizens our commitment to sound financial practices and excellent stewardship of taxpayer dollars. Our ERP system from Tyler Technologies has allowed us to streamline all of our departments and functions onto one system, making us more efficient and thus more accountable to our citizens,” Hermann said.

Durham, which contracted with Tyler Technologies in June 2005, implemented a comprehensive solution from Tyler’s MUNIS financial management suite. At the time of purchase, Durham officials cited the ability of the MUNIS system to fit the City’s needs, Tyler’s strong presence in the state of North Carolina and the fact that Tyler performs its own implementations as key factors in its decision to purchase the product. The City’s implementation of Tyler’s MUNIS system, which went live on financials in July 2006, facilitated the management of financial data across departments, integrating it for easy access and reporting.

“We congratulate the City of Durham and its Finance Department for its recent recognition by the state of North Carolina. The City’s commitment and impressive progress in the area of fiscal accountability is commendable, as is its commitment to providing citizens with the highest level of service. Tyler is pleased that our MUNIS solution contributed to Durham’s success,” commented Richard Peterson, Jr., president of Tyler’s MUNIS Financial Management Solutions.

With a population of approximately 209,000, Durham is the fourth-largest city in North Carolina and is among the 100 largest cities in the United States. In addition to being known as the City of Medicine, it serves as a cornerstone of the Research Triangle region of the state and is home to both Duke University and North Carolina Central University.

Based in Dallas, Tyler Technologies is a leading provider of end-to-end information management solutions and services for local governments.
