Government ERP Financial Platform
Springbrook Software, a leading cloud-based ERP platform provider for local government agencies today announces that the City of Peekskill, New York has selected Springbrook's Cirrus Cloud platform to run its agency's entire financial and administrative operations. The City selected Springbrook over another regional software provider as part of a modernization initiative.

Peekskill acquired Springbrook's Finance, Property Tax, Payroll, Fixed Assets, Purchase Orders and Accounts Receivable modules. All modules are delivered on a single, integrated platform which enables data to flow accurately and in real-time across all departmental units within the City, thereby ensuring accuracy, efficiency and transparency of information.

"We started down the path of selecting an ERP system that enabled us to run our municipality from a single platform and found, through trial and error with another vendor, that Springbrook was the best alternative in the marketplace. We needed to get all our data into one single platform, and Springbrook's modern, cloud based Cirrus solution was the right answer for us."

Matt Alexander, Finance Director for the City of Peekskill

"The efficiency, data security and scalability of Springbrook's software means our entire back-office process is in sync," he added. "This accuracy and speed will help us respond to our commissioner requests and citizen needs with confidence."

Tyler Technologies to Provide Public Safety and Justice Solutions to Fairfield County, Ohio

Tyler Technologies | June 16, 2022

Tyler Technologies, Inc. announced that it has signed two agreements in Fairfield County, Ohio. The first is with the Fairfield County Probate and Juvenile Court for Tyler’s Enterprise Justice suite, powered by Odyssey®, and the second is with the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office for Tyler’s Enterprise Public Safety suite, powered by New World™. The Probate and Juvenile Court is currently operating a legacy case management system that is based on older technology and no longer serves the needs of the courts. The courts selected Tyler’s Enterprise Justice and Enterprise Supervision solutions to improve case management, streamline court processes, and manage all supervision processes and pretrial services more efficiently. These SaaS solutions will run on Amazon Web Services (AWS), the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud offerings. This offering will bring added benefits to the courts that include increased availability and uptime of the products and enhanced security and compliance. This environment will also eliminate the need for the courts to build and maintain local servers. “We are excited to modernize our court operations with Tyler as we’ve outgrown our current case management solution,” said Fairfield County Probate and Juvenile Court Judge Terre Vandervoort. “Deploying the solutions in the cloud gives us the added benefits of less strain on our internal IT resources and knowing we’re always receiving the latest software updates.” The Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office has selected a number of solutions from Tyler’s Enterprise Public Safety suite, including Enterprise Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD), Enterprise Law Enforcement Records, Enterprise Police and Fire Mobility, and Enterprise Corrections. These fully integrated solutions will enable fast, easy access to critical information and improved workflow to make the agency work more efficiently. Not only do the solutions provide accurate and secure information for dispatchers, first responders in the field, and command staff, but the solutions will also ensure the sheriff’s office is compliant with state and federal mandates. “The addition of these public safety solutions from Tyler will improve efficiency for all of our major activities, from dispatch to records and corrections management,” said Fairfield County Sheriff Alex Lape. “Our number one priority is keeping our community safe, and by having these comprehensive and accurate solutions assisting our first responders and dispatchers, we’ll be able to serve our community even better.” We’re pleased to bring our premier justice and public safety solution suites to Fairfield County. The courts and sheriff’s office are already doing impressive work serving their constituents, and we are excited to help them increase efficiency, improve processes, and help their staff focus on the most crucial tasks.” Rusty Smith, president of Tyler’s Justice Group Fairfield County is located in central Ohio and is part of the Columbus metropolitan area.
