LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Lafayette moves forward in its effort to update their software for the first time in 15 years.
The Lafayette Board of Works approved Tuesday the recommendation to use Tyler Technologies Munis as the developer to replace the Enterprise Resource Planning System.
The new software will give citizens the opportunity to pay utility bills electronically along with updating Human Resource and payroll technology for the city.
The cost of the software is $1.2 million over 5 years and IT director Andy Milam said the software will save the city money by not having to spend money in certain areas as they currently do.
"There will be some savings where we can eliminate some one-off applications that we have put in place over the years to make up for shortfalls in our existing solution," said Milam. "Also, this is going to be a paperless system."
Milan hopes to have a contract worked out with Tyler Technologies and begin implementing the software sometime in January.
