Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Goes Live with Tyler Technologies’ Munis and ExecuTime Solutions

PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Tyler replaces 25-year-old legacy system

Tyler Technologies Inc. (TYL) announced today that the city of Baton Rouge/Parish of East Baton Rouge consolidated government has successfully gone live with Tyler’s Munis® enterprise resource planning (ERP) and ExecuTime Time & Attendance solutions.

Baton Rouge’s legacy solution, consisting of several disparate systems with limited software integration, data extraction, and connectivity capabilities, was in place for more than 25 years. Baton Rouge selected Munis and ExecuTime as the solutions to meet these evolving needs following an extensive procurement process, during which Baton Rouge representatives conducted significant research into and reviewed first-hand ERP solutions deployed in other municipal markets.

Baton Rouge is already experiencing many benefits from Tyler’s Munis and ExecuTime solutions, including:

  • Vendor self-service functionality, which allows vendors to update their profile information and view past transactions without needing to contact the City-Parish
  • A significant reduction in the time it takes for a vendor to be compensated for goods or services
  • The ability to extract Munis data and easily connect to Tyler’s Socrata Open Checkbook and Socrata Open Expenditures solutions, two key elements of the City-Parish’s award-winning open data program, Open Data BR
  • Streamlined workflows that allow departments to immediately check a document’s status in real time
  • Overall increased efficiency for day-to-day ERP tasks

“Our ERP implementation has been a complex process as we’ve worked with Tyler to replace and consolidate more than 20-year-old systems into one streamlined solution for our City-Parish government,” said Mayor of Baton Rouge Sharon Weston Broome. “After this successful deployment, I am confident that we will continue to see improvements and benefits of the software as our users become more familiar with the technology and new business processes. These solutions will bring increased efficiency, better workflows, data transparency, and increased functionality to all aspects of our processes.”

“We’ve had a strong partnership with Baton Rouge throughout this implementation, and we’re pleased to see them taking advantage of many benefits from their new software,” said Chris Hepburn, president of Tyler’s ERP & Schools Division. “We’re especially excited about the integration between Munis and Baton Rouge’s existing Socrata solutions, where the City-Parish can have better insights into data to make informed decisions.”

Tyler continues to increase its footprint in Louisiana, adding Baton Rouge to its existing client base of 37 clients across the state. Baton Rouge is the capital of Louisiana and located on the eastern bank of the Mississippi River. It has a population of approximately 225,000.
