Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) will enable the Town of Enfield and its Board of Education to enhance reporting, workflow, and customer service by providing its Munis ® ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solution. The solution is backed by a support infrastructure built entirely to support the unique needs of municipalities and schools.
Enfield has invested in a full range of Tyler’s Munis financial, human capital and citizen service applications. Under the five-year agreement, Tyler will host Enfield’s Munis software applications and data at its secure facility. Tyler will provide ongoing support, maintenance and upgrades for software, hardware and operating systems. The contract is valued at more than $1.4 million.
“The ASP option will keep us current with hardware and networking technologies through upgrades and system enhancements,” commented Paul Russell, chief technology officer for Enfield. “It also gives us a highly available solution with full disaster recovery services and provides a higher level of service from system experts. Our onsite technical resources will be free to focus on local support of the network, end-user devices and report writing.”
Russell said Enfield expects to reap multiple benefits from implementation of Tyler’s fully integrated solution. “Enfield looks to improve financial management for the Town and Board of Education through the enhanced reporting, dashboards and standard reports available in Munis.”
He also believes using Tyler’s software will automate manual and redundant processes with its built-in workflow features and improve customer service with the Citizens Self Service portal. Applicant Tracking and Employee Self Service will ease management of human resource-related information.

Peterson, Jr., president of Tyler’s ERP & School Division. “We’re happy to have been selected and look forward to enabling Enfield to operate more efficiently with our fully integrated ERP solution.”
