Tyler Technologies Inc. has won a $7.6 million contract from Kansas to install property tax administration software, the company announced today.
Under the contract, Tyler Technologies of Dallas will install several modules of its Orion property tax administration software as part of a pilot project in Johnson, Douglas and Riley counties, before rolling out the solution to all 105 counties in the state.
Johnson County, the state's largest county, is part of the Kansas City metropolitan area.
Tyler Technologies' Orion property tax administration product is a new, browser-based system designed to provide assessing and taxing jurisdictions with an easy-to-use interface with property information databases.
The software offers imbedded document imaging, property inquiries and appeals and links to track owners, related properties, multiple mailing addresses and exemption information.
The system uses extensible markup language, n-tier architecture, an ultra thin-client footprint and component-based design, the company said.
Tyler Technologies offers information management solutions and services to local governments. The company has about 1,230 employees and annual sales of $133.9 million, according to Hoover's Online of Austin, Texas.
