Tyler Technologies has signed an agreement with Missouri City, Texas, to deliver its Munis enterprise resource planning (ERP) and Incode municipal court solutions under a software as a service (SaaS) agreement that enables the city to access current technology for a low upfront investment.

Missouri City has a population of approximately 64,000 and is southwest of Houston. During their search for new financial and court systems, city officials discovered that they could source both systems through Tyler rather than buying disparate applications from different vendors.

Missouri City’s agreement with Tyler also includes disaster recovery, which creates another layer of protection for the city’s data. And, because Tyler’s applications are browser-based, city officials can access Munis and Incode from any location that has an Internet connection.

The seven-year SaaS agreement, which includes licensing, related professional services and maintenance fees, is valued at approximately $1.8 million. As part of the agreement, Missouri City will use Tyler’s Web Services designed to help the city establish an online presence for easier staff and citizen access.
