Versatrans 2014 Excellence Award winner:
Award submissions were evaluated by a panel of Tyler leadership. Entries were judged on business value, maturity, innovation and relevance to other public-sector organizations. Additional criteria met by award winners include:
Palmetto Bay used Eden and Tyler Cashiering to recoup lost revenue from credit card processing fees; TCOMM 911 reduced payroll errors and improved customer service with Eden’s human resource applications; and Asotin County used Eden’s OSDBA (operating system and database administration) support services to save thousands in employee costs.
Barrow County School System used Munis and Tyler Pulse to provide educators with data and track student results; Queen Creek reigned in its purchasing costs with the Munis purchasing card program, which allowed staff to import data daily; and Contra Costa COE improved overall efficiencies of its central check processing system with Munis.
Mission CISD invested in the Tyler SIS e-learning platform making it mandatory for all new teachers to complete training of Tyler SIS before the start of the school year, resulting in improved data accuracy and access to information. Joplin Schools was awarded for its use of Versatrans following the catastrophic tornado that struck the city of Joplin on May 22, 2011. The district used Versatrans to plan routes around destroyed or missing addresses and landmarks after the initial crisis and, most recently, to eliminate the extra buses and routes that were required to deal with the aftermath of the tornado.
Tyler Excellence Award winners were honored Monday, April 14, at the Tyler Connect 2014 user conference in San Antonio where they were presented with the award and given the opportunity to share their best practices and lessons learned with their public sector peers. Winners were also offered an expense paid trip for one to the conference.
