Tyler Technologies Expands School Transportation Solutions to Canada

PLANO, Texas — Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) announced today that its student transportation solutions, including Versatrans Routing & Planning and Traversa, have been selected to join the Ontario Education Collaborative Marketplace (OECM) in Canada. OECM provides cooperative purchasing services for 33 consortiums representing 71 school boards in Canada’s most populous province.

OECM conducted a rigorous procurement process which included evaluating and testing each solution’s routing software and capabilities. Both of Tyler’s routing solutions, Versatrans and Traversa, were selected. As a supplier partner to OECM, Tyler will be able to provide its routing system without school boards and consortiums having to conduct their own competitive procurement.

“By joining OECM, we’re able to showcase our industry leading routing and planning solutions to Ontario and its school districts,” said Ted Thien, vice president and general manager of Tyler’s transportation solutions. “We look forward to building long term partnerships with these districts by helping them manage their school bus routing through the use of our products, ultimately saving them time and money. Tyler’s Traversa and Versatrans suites of products deliver intuitive, comprehensive transportation management that is scalable to districts of any size.”

Through this distinction, Tyler’s solutions can be selected to serve more than 800,000 students that are transported daily in Ontario by allowing for seamless interactions between route, vehicle, and student data. Tyler transportation solutions offer online and mobile student information portals to keep parents and students informed of bus route changes or other routing alerts and provide fleet maintenance reporting to ensure timely vehicle maintenance and avoid breakdowns.

Tyler offers a broad portfolio of school solutions in addition to transportation software, including data analytics, document management, incident management, student information, and financial management.
