The contract includes implementation of the company's enterprise resource planning software, called MUNIS, for financial, payroll and personnel and revenue and tax systems. The applications purchased by Albany County are based on relational databases and open architecture.
The implementation will take place in three phases, said county and company officials. Phase one will include payroll and personnel applications; phase two includes financial and most of the of the tax and revenue applications; and phase three includes the delinquent tax application. The project is scheduled for completion in mid-2002, said the company.
Among the companies that competed against Tyler for the contract were American Management Systems Inc., Fairfax, Va.; Oracle Corp., Redwood Shores, Calif.; and PeopleSoft, of Pleasonton, Calif., said Joe Pennisi, commissioner of the Department of Management and Budget, Albany County.
