Tyler Technologies, which makes enterprise resource planning software for education and local government entities, has acquired a software-as-a-service (SaaS) company specializing in public health inspections.
Tyler’s purchase of the Digital Health Department (DHD) will, according to a press release, lead to integration with three of its software packages — EnerGov, Munis and Incode. Of those three, EnerGov is most specifically focused on inspections, regulations and permits.
“The offering aids local and state governments with managing the critical processes of protecting the community’s public health, related to the programs of health and environmental compliance and inspections of food and restaurant, pool and recreational health, wastewater and septic, drinking water, solid wastes, hazardous materials, vector control, daycare, tattoo and body art, tourist accommodations, campgrounds and other services,” the statement reads.
DHD also brings some sizable clients to the table, including the states of Georgia and Hawaii, and the city of San Antonio. Since the platform is SaaS, it is cloud-based, accessible through mobile devices for field work and tends away from paper.
According to the statement, Tyler is planning on keeping all of DHD’s employees on board.
The companies didn’t disclose the terms of the transaction.
