Tyler Technologies Awarded $1.7 Million in New Contracts With Butler County, Ohio
DALLAS, June 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Dallas-based Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) announced today that the Butler County, Ohio Auditor has entered into new systems and services contracts totaling $1.7 million with Tyler's Cole Layer Trumble Company (CLT) unit. Under the contracts, Tyler will conduct the 2002 reappraisal of all real property in Butler County and will provide services associated with the implementation of its Geographic Information System (GIS). Butler County is located near Cincinnati in southwestern Ohio and has a population of 340,000.

"Butler County has been a valued software and services customer since 1988, when they first implemented our legacy tax accounting and mass appraisal software," said Bruce F. Nagel, CLT's president. "Tyler Technologies has been the leader in introducing technology-based advances to the assessment process, and we are pleased to provide Butler County with services and systems that incorporate the latest technologies."

"These new contracts with Butler County underscore the value of Tyler's end-to-end strategy of providing related services such as property appraisal and GIS implementation along with state-of-the-art Internet-enabled software products that local governments need to administer the property tax," continued Mr. Nagel.

"We originally chose Tyler because of its mass appraisal leadership position," commented Kay Rogers, Butler County Auditor. "Since then, our relationship has expanded through Tyler's development of the Integrated Assessment System (IAS), which Butler County has installed. Tyler was the first to develop a truly integrated, relational database system for property tax administration. IAS provides Butler County with a system that seamlessly integrates the Auditor's and Treasurer's offices and allows us to efficiently process all of the information regarding a property, from establishing an assessed value through the tax collection and distribution functions," added Ms. Rogers.

Butler County has also purchased Tyler's Community Access Response Environment module to allow for Internet access to property descriptions and property tax information. "The public can easily go to our website at www.butlercountyohio.org and follow the simple instructions to lookup information regarding a particular property," commented Ms. Rogers.

IAS was developed using the relational database and development tools provided by Oracle. Oracle is the second largest software company in the world and the largest supplier of relational databases -- with the top ten e-commerce companies using Oracle's relational database engine. IAS is the only total Oracle property tax administration system available to assessing and taxing jurisdictions in the United States and Canada.
