Tyler Technologies Awarded New Contracts with Hawaii And Maui Counties in Hawaii
DALLAS, May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Dallas-based Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) announced today that the Counties of Hawaii and Maui, Hawaii have entered into software and services contracts with Tyler's Cole Layer Trumble Company (CLT) unit for the installation of CLT's Integrated Assessment System (IAS) to administer their property tax functions. The two-year contracts total $4.4 million and, when added to the Honolulu contract signed earlier this year, bring CLT's total IAS contract awards this year in the state of Hawaii to $6.8 million.

IAS is comprised of several modules that will provide the Hawaiian counties with the ability to maintain property descriptions, establish values, administer exemptions, calculate taxes, produce tax bills, collect property taxes and make property tax information available to the general public via the Internet.

"The Hawaii and Maui County Assessor's Offices have both been using our Mass Appraisal System (MAS) software since 1986 to manage the appraisal and assessment functions," said John Baker, CLT's Senior Vice President for Technical Sales. "After an exhaustive search for new software, Hawaii and Maui selected CLT to provide cutting-edge Internet-enabled software and services for the Tax Collector and to replace the MAS software with IAS in the Assessor's office. Hawaii County encompasses the island of Hawaii, also known as the "Big Island," while Maui County encompasses the island of Maui, along with the islands of Molokai, Lanai and Kahoolawe.

As part of the IAS implementation, CLT will install its web-enabled Community Access Response Environment (CARE) and the Spatially Enabled Access Module (SEAM). CARE and SEAM provide for Internet access to assessment and tax data, with the ability to display information on digitally displayed ownership maps. Property owners will be able to find their property on the tax map and review the parcel's description, valuation information and tax payment information via the Internet. The two counties also purchased CLT's Landisc product to store and retrieve digital images of each property, which will also be accessible to the public via the Internet.

IAS has been written using the Oracle relational database engine and Oracle development tools such as Developer 2000 to create the front-end user interfaces. IAS is the only "all Oracle" mass appraisal and property tax administration software commercially available to local assessing and taxing jurisdictions.
