Five North Carolina schools select resource planning solution
Tyler Technologies Inc. (NYSE: TYL) announced that it has signed contracts with several North Carolina K-12 school districts under the Department of Public Instruction’s (DPI) School Business Systems Modernization Program. New Hanover County Schools, Stanly County Schools, Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools, Swain County Schools, and Craven County Schools have selected Tyler’s Munis enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to help enhance school business operations and improve overall efficiency in their districts.
After a thorough review, each district selected Tyler’s Munis solution, including financial, HR and payroll, procurement, and revenue management suites. These software solutions will be implemented in Tyler’s cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) environment, which provides secure, enterprise-class data storage and 24/7 remote access with built-in recovery services. As early adopters, these districts will play an important role in shaping future Munis implementations across the state.
“We’re excited to be the first local education agency in North Carolina to select Tyler’s Munis solution under DPI’s master services agreement,” said Mary Hazel Small, chief finance officer, New Hanover County Schools. “With 44 schools serving approximately 26,000 students, we knew we needed a powerful ERP system that would accurately and effectively manage a lot of critical information. Tyler’s Munis solution will bring us greater data transparency, improve processes, and streamline overall financial and HR management.”
Tyler’s Munis solution will empower the districts with:
- Integrated data
- Comprehensive financial and HR workflow
- Electronic document imaging
- Built-in disaster recovery protection
- Student activity management
- The addition of Tyler’s ExecuTime solution
“We’re pleased to have signed a growing number of school districts in North Carolina under the master services agreement, and we look forward to helping these districts improve overall information transparency while also enabling them to make important data-driven decisions,” said Chris Webster, vice president of implementation for Tyler’s ERP & Schools Division. “We’re eager to work with these early adopters on the implementations, and we’re confident that Munis will deliver advanced benefits like integrated data and streamlined workflows for each district.”
