Los Alamos County, New Mexico, Selects Tyler Technologies’ EnerGov Planning, Permitting & Licensing Solution

June 24, 2014

County chooses SaaS delivery model for upfront cost savings, accessibility and long-term flexibility

PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) has signed a SaaS contract with Los Alamos County, New Mexico, for Tyler’s EnerGov® planning, permitting and licensing solution to replace the county’s legacy permitting solution. Los Alamos County chose EnerGov as part of its efficiency plans for the community and economic development department, which is responsible for the county’s planning and zoning, inspections and affordable housing programs. The three-year SaaS agreement includes related professionals services, training and support.

Los Alamos County chose to search for a new solution due to its legacy permitting application no longer being supported by the provider. The county was drawn to EnerGov because the platform automates and centrally connects critical processes, including regulatory management, land use planning, code enforcement, licensing and citizen requests. In addition, because EnerGov is commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software, it doesn’t require extensive customization.

EnerGov will help the county further streamline workflow processes, improve communication, and increase productivity for office and mobile workers alike. And EnerGov mobile applications will give employees real-time access in the field.

Like most of Tyler’s solutions, EnerGov can be hosted at the client site or delivered via SaaS, which is a popular model because it helps reduce upfront costs while eliminating costs associated with hardware maintenance and upgrades. A cloud-based solution also frees county IT personnel to address other demands and provides an automatic disaster recovery solution.

Los Alamos County has had a relationship with Tyler since 2011 when the county began using Tyler’s Eagle product suite for property appraisal and assessment. Los Alamos County, located in the mountains of northern New Mexico, is well known for its scientific research-and-development facilities, including the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The county has approximately 18,000 residents.
