DALLAS, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Dallas-based Tyler Technologies (NYSE: TYL) announced today that it has been awarded a $5.3 million contract with the Business Services Department of the Illinois Secretary of State's office. Under the five-year contract, Tyler will install and manage a new digital imaging system and perform related services, including technology updates, back records conversion, digital microfilm production and process workflow implementation, for all divisions of the Business Services Department.

The new system will be the cornerstone of the Secretary of State's e-commerce initiative.
