HAMILTON, OH - Butler County Auditor Roger Reynolds has announced that the Auditor’s Office has secured a contract with Tyler Technologies, Inc. to provide a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) financial solution for Butler County. The decision was the result of a committee comprised of county employees from several offices that studied the need for an integrated financial system.

Tyler Technologies is a national and highly respected company which specializes in ERP solutions for the public sector. Having a one-system, ERP solution has the potential of saving the county millions of dollars over the next five years.

“Our success is measured by operational efficiencies for county offices. Tyler’s ERP solution eliminates waste, reduces duplication, improves online access and utilizes electronic transactions in place of paper for county departments and fiscal officers,” said Auditor Roger Reynolds. “We chose Tyler’s system because it is complex enough to meet our demands as a full service county government, yet agile enough to meet our specific needs without extensive maintenance or IT support.”

“The county system has been a piecemeal operation that duplicates resources, adds a tremendous amount of paperwork, and complicates our payment process. Tyler is a perfect fit for what we sought to achieve. I was targeting a system that is fully integrated and government specific, and Tyler has that system,” Reynolds said.
“The ERP system will provide the tools for a faster, cleaner, and more responsive system, such as electronic payments that will eliminate over 60,000 paper checks annually; budgeting with more accurate information; and electronic time keeping that will reduce costly data entry expenses.“

“In essence, the ERP solution provides tremendous upgrades, specifically in five key areas: Internal controls, reporting, asset tracking, record storage, and grant management. The improvements will be numerous: County information won’t be splintered; reports won’t be bogged down in multiple computer systems; the use of paper and work hours will be greatly reduced; record storage space will be downsized; information will be gathered quickly and in one software program; resources will be shared; and the county will be harmonious and efficient in its reporting methods. These are tremendous advantages,” according to Reynolds.
