Tyler Technologies Announces New Cloud-based Transportation Management Solution

Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) today announced the release of Traversa®, a groundbreaking school transportation management solution designed to transform K-12 school bus management operations and help school districts meet transportation objectives.

Traditionally, transportation software has been offered as stand-alone modules, each with different interfaces, disparate data sources and varied installation and training requirements. Traversa is the first transportation solution on the market to offer a comprehensive, customizable, Web-based solution with a suite of transportation applications in one system. The core functionality of Traversa includes bus routing, trip and activity management, work orders, fleet maintenance and GPS tracking.

Traversa is being offered as a cloud-based solution administered by Tyler’s experienced staff. The product’s HTML5 foundation provides a touch-screen interface which has been optimized for tablet and traditional desktop user experiences. Traversa’s mapping and routing functionality is built upon GIS technology from Esri® and is coupled with GPS tracking technology. This powerful combination gives users a total view of their operations and allows them unprecedented capabilities to make real-time adjustments to transportation plans. It also facilitates data analysis to make operations more efficient and tools to manage the daily rollout of vehicles.

“The Traversa transportation solution is the result of significant research and development with considerable input from our valued clients; Traversa is so easy to use, you can draw your bus route by tracing the map with your finger,” said Ted Thien, senior vice president of Tyler’s Versatrans solution. “Offering Traversa as a cloud-based solution gives school districts a robust transportation management solution with low upfront investment costs and a reduced implementation timeline.”
