Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced that Loudoun County, Va., has chosen Tyler’s iasWorld® Online solution to enhance their computer-assisted mass appraisal (CAMA) capabilities and provide residents with easier access to accurate real estate valuation and tax data. The agreement is for four years.
iasWorld Online is an integrated appraisal and tax solution that houses all actions and information in a central location, bridging the gap between information silos and improving efficiency in operations. Using Tyler’s software, Loudoun County can now provide more accurate information to its taxpayers in a ready and efficient manner.
Implemented on a software as a service (SaaS) platform, iasWorld Online will be hosted in one of Tyler’s wholly owned data centers; disaster recovery services include geographic redundancy via backup servers in another Tyler data center. In addition to operational benefits, Loudoun expects to realize cost-savings because the SaaS model allows the county to avoid purchasing new hardware, installing the software or managing the county’s expansive appraisal and tax database.
“Our decision to implement this mission-critical system with Tyler’s software as a service model is an important step for the county,” said Gene Troxell, Loudoun County’s director of information technology. “Without the burden of purchasing, installing and maintaining the hardware and software to support the system, our IT staff is able to turn their attention to other important initiatives.”
Loudoun is one of Virginia’s largest counties with more than 300,000 residents. The task of managing vast amounts of data, along with the changes in market values, makes it essential for Loudoun to have a flexible system that can handle frequent changes while consistently delivering accurate information.
As part of the iasWorld Online implementation, Loudoun will receive updates to their website that allow taxpayers to have on-demand access to information, pay taxes and interact with one another online.
Loudoun’s neighbor, Fairfax County, has more than 1 million residents and is a long-time client of Tyler Technologies. Fairfax has used Tyler’s appraisal and tax solutions, including iasWorld since 2002. Loudoun factored Fairfax’s positive experiences with Tyler into its decision to choose iasWorld Online.
“Loudoun County is committed to delivering modern appraisal technology and services to their citizens while creating efficiencies, cost savings and operational improvements for the county itself,” said Andrew D. Teed, president of Tyler’s Appraisal & Tax Division. “Tyler looks forward to building a long-lasting relationship with Loudoun County.”
