Charleston sought scalable planning, permitting and licensing
solution with GIS integration to support operational goals
PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) has signed an agreement with the
city of Charleston, South Carolina, for its EnerGov®
planning, permitting and licensing software solution after conducting a
competitive review. EnerGov was chosen to help the city simplify its
operations and work-management processes. The agreement includes
software licenses, implementation services, related professional
services and support.
Charleston selected EnerGov because it met the city’s requirement for a
commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) system that is scalable to meet future
business needs. Tyler’s EnerGov solution will expand the city’s public
access availability with Web-enabled applications that support payment
portals, electronic plan reviews and public information requests.
Additionally, EnerGov’s mobile applications will provide Charleston
staff with enhanced, real-time access to data while in the field and its public
maintenance management suite will streamline the city’s work order
and public asset management processes.
“EnerGov will consolidate and standardize data from different
operational areas that managers, analysts and key stakeholders across
the enterprise can use to measure performance and support
decision-making,” said Charleston’s Chief Information Officer Wes
Ratterree. “We plan to streamline processes by establishing and
improving performance metrics and improving the accuracy of our data,
which will reduce operating costs, improve data quality and reduce
processing times. Overall, EnerGov will support our city-customer
partnership by providing methods that encourage quality customer
service, promote government transparency and add value for the public.”
“EnerGov’s platform was designed specifically to connect governments
with customers, like those at the city of Charleston, and to automate
business processes to meet operational goals,” said Brett Cate,
president of Tyler’s Local Government Division. “Tyler is committed to
putting its clients first, working with them directly during data
conversion and implementation to ensure their success. We look forward
to a long partnership with Charleston.”
The second most populous city in South Carolina, Charleston is the
county seat of Charleston County. The city has received many accolades
as a world-renowned destination and has a broad-based economy focusing
on tourism, technology, higher education, maritime activities and small
business. Charleston joins a growing list of Tyler clients in South
Carolina including the counties of Georgetown, Horry, Charleston and
Berkeley, the towns of Hilton Head and Bluffton, and the cities of
