Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) has signed a contract with
California's Tulare County for Tyler's EnerGov®
planning, permitting and licensing software suite. The agreement
includes related professional services, training and support.
Tulare County selected EnerGov for its overall scalability and
flexibility in automating processes for permitting, regulatory licensing
and citizen engagement. EnerGov will replace the county's current
technology to improve customer service and streamline the review
process. Once implemented, EnerGov will integrate with the county's GIS
platform to provide time-saving permitting and inspection field
services, as well as real-time spatial analytics that will allow for
better planning, forecasting and decision-making within Tulare County.
The county conducted a competitive RFP process that included an
extensive product and customer evaluation before choosing Tyler.
Jake Raper, director of the Tulare County Resource Management Agency -
the entity responsible for land use planning and permitting - says that
the EnerGov software is an innovative technology solution that allows
the applicants to monitor the status and progress of land use
entitlements and building permits in real time. The system will also
assist emergency services with information tracking.
"This software solution allows property owners to log in and keep track
of the progress of their development project, improving the customer
service experience for the public we serve," said Raper. "In business,
time is money, so it is vitally important that as a public agency we use
every tool we can to be responsive and transparent about how we conduct
the public's business. By making our permit processing more responsive
and streamlined, we are in essence encouraging economic development by
ensuring a business-friendly environment."
"EnerGov's Web-based automation platform is flexible enough to
interconnect across departments, while providing better customer service
delivery to residents and increased field mobility for employees," said
Brett Cate, president of Tyler's Local Government Division. "Tyler is
committed to delivering award-winning mobile applications into the
field, lowering costs and helping local government entities like Tulare
