Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) announced today that New Hanover County Schools, located in Wilmington, North Carolina, is the first school district in North Carolina to go live on Tyler’s Munis® enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution within North Carolina’s School Business System Modernization (SBSM) program.
Through an agreement with the Department of Public Instruction's (DPI) Education Business Systems Advisory Committee and its School Business Systems Modernization Group, Tyler's Munis ERP solution was named to the North Carolina K-12 schools master services agreement as an approved vendor. As an approved statewide vendor, Tyler meets and exceeds the core tenets of a modern, flexible, and efficient ERP offering as defined by the Department of Public Instruction. As part of Tyler’s commitment to the state project, Tyler will provide statewide reporting that meets the needs of the State Board of Education and local school districts from the same flexible system. To date, 28 school districts have elected to partner with Tyler Technologies through the SBSM program.
“Our core project goal is to increase operational efficiency and productivity through implementation of a modern ERP system by streamlining business processes, reducing duplication of effort, and improving overall transparency,” said Mary Hazel Small, chief financial officer, New Hanover County Schools.
In addition, Tyler’s Munis solution will allow New Hanover County Schools to have comprehensive financial and HR workflow, integrated data, electronic document imaging, built-in disaster recovery protection, student activity management, and the addition of Tyler’s ExecuTime™ time and attendance solution.
