Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) announced today that it has acquired
MyCivic, a rapidly growing provider of citizen engagement applications.
MyCivic will elevate Tyler's current citizen-facing applications by
enabling clients to provide a single app for citizens to interact with
their local government in multiple ways.
"The acquisition of MyCivic supplements Tyler's Connected Communities
vision and business plan by providing connected applications and
personalized portals for a customized experience for constituents," said
Lynn Moore, president and chief executive officer of Tyler. "By bringing
together Tyler's mission-critical foundational software for government
and MyCivic's expertise in citizen-facing applications, we will be able
to empower connected citizens who can easily engage with their local
government in a meaningful way."
MyCivic currently provides its product to clients across the United
States and Canada. Its main application offering brings "city hall into
citizens' hands" by connecting citizens to all the services, resources,
and information that their city has to offer, including bill pay,
reporting features, events calendars, and business directories. A few
features of the app include:
Mobile capabilities, allowing local government and agency staff to
efficiently manage assignments, information, and internal
communication to improve services at their desk or in the field
A complete business directory, which can be used to promote the local
economy by adding a directory for dining, shopping, and local

bulletins, patrol requests, and crime tips to improve communication

its citizen-facing applications with the addition of MyCivic," said T.J.
Sokoll, CEO and founder of MyCivic. "We know how powerful it can be when
citizens have direct access and a clear line of communication to their
local government. By combining Tyler's experience within the public
sector with MyCivic's proven platform, we are confident that our
solution will be more advanced and intuitive to fit the needs of
communities of all sizes."
This acquisition will benefit Tyler's entire client base as MyCivic has
applicability across most of Tyler's solution areas. Its unified design
brings together many different user groups such as citizens, parents,
public safety agencies, and businesses, and its mobile platform enables
rapid development and deployment for clients, averaging a quick, 30 to
45-day implementation timeline from contract signing to go-live.
