Tyler Technologies Inc. has won a $1.5 million contract from Lancaster County, Neb., to provide appraisal and document management software, the company announced today.
Tyler of Dallas will provide software to support the county's needs related to tax and assessment administration, appraisal and document recording.
The new software will give the county a browser-based system that includes imbedded document imaging, property inquiries and appeals, and extensive linking capabilities to track owners, related properties, multiple mailing addresses and exemption information.
The county will use the applications for computer-assisted mass appraisal, assessment administration, personal property administration, inquiry and appeals tracking, tax billing and collection, and delinquent tax administration.
In addition, the Lancaster County Register of Deeds office will implement Tyler's n-tier document recording and imaging system to support an annual recording volume of about 100,000 documents. The new system will manage cashiering, scanning, workflow, indexing and verification, basic optical character recognition and reporting functions in the office.
The system's Web services application program interface will allow other applications to access recording data and images, and the county will use Web services to develop a portal for providing public access.
Lancaster County, which includes the state capital of Lincoln, has a population of more than 250,000.
Tyler, a provider of information management solutions and services to local government, has 1,200 employees and annual sales of $145 million.
