Tyler Technologies Acquires Digital Health Department, Inc.

Tyler enters public environmental health market and broadens its EnerGov enterprise permitting and licensing offering

Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced it has acquired the assets of Digital Health Department (DHD), a company that provides environmental health software, offering a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution for public health compliance and inspections processes.

With this acquisition, Tyler will broaden its EnerGoventerprise licensing and regulatory solution by adding environmental health-market-focused inspections and a compliance offering. The offering aids local and state governments with managing the critical processes of protecting the community's public health, related to the programs of health and environmental compliance and inspections of food and restaurant, pool and recreational health, wastewater and septic, drinking water, solid wastes, hazardous materials, vector control, daycare, tattoo and body art, tourist accommodations, campgrounds, and other services.

As state and local government programs that address protecting the public's health become an increasing citizen concern, Tyler's clients, particularly those currently leveraging EnerGov, Munis,® and Incode®, can benefit from an additional and expanded Tyler solution to ensure the safety of its community's public health. For DHD's existing clients, Tyler brings the resources, long-term stability, and best practices in the public sector space to help further strengthen their current environmental health solution offerings. DHD's long history in the environmental health and safety vertical supports clients including the states of Georgia and Hawaii, and the city of San Antonio, Texas.

"This opportunity with Tyler is a natural fit for our company and will help us accelerate the offerings we currently provide in the environmental health market," said Rahul Saxena, chief executive officer, Digital Health Department. "Health inspections are becoming increasingly important to government agencies, and we're looking forward to being able to provide our existing and prospective clients the option to further enhance their enterprise permitting and licensing needs through Tyler's solutions."

"We are excited to enter the environmental health market by adding Digital Health Department's offerings to Tyler's EnerGov solution suite," said Rusty Smith, general manager of Tyler's EnerGov solution. "In an increasingly safety-conscious world with increasing demand for public transparency, Tyler now will provide a leading solution for agencies to manage the complex and critical processes related to health inspections, and, in turn, help their constituents feel at ease knowing their safety is a top priority."

All of DHD's employees will remain with Tyler to continue to serve clients and integrate processes, products, and services into Tyler's offerings for enterprise community health solutions.
