The gov tech giant has bought ARInspect, which sells an AI-backed platform for inspections of bridges, utilities and other public-sector assets and facilities. The move marks Tyler’s second AI buy in recent months.

Tyler Technologies has bought another AI-focused firm, a company whose platform could help the government technology giant improve its environmental protection, disaster recovery and human services offerings.

Virginia-based ARInspect, which focuses on public safety field operations, will become part of Tyler’s Platform Solutions Division.

Tyler did not say how much it paid for the privately held company, founded in 2017.

ARInspect uses artificial intelligence for inspections, audits, investigations and surveys of such public assets as utilities, transit and facilities, along with agriculture, health systems and workforces.

Water and air quality management, underground storage tanks, bridges and roads, school buses, aviation and waste are among the areas the company targets.

In a statement, Tyler said the company’s “AI-powered, data-driven platform [will extend] Tyler’s Application Platform and other solutions with intelligent edge technology.”

Tyler said the technology developed by ARInspect will find use at the federal and state level.

As Tyler put it, ARInspect’s AI and machine learning platform allows public-sector workers in the field to work independently, as well as automate and digitize their labors. The company’s platform can analyze historical data such as census counts, completed inspections and violations in hopes of identifying sites and facilities that may pose risks.

“ARInspect’s platform and expertise in AI and machine learning combined with Tyler’s public-sector experience and robust portfolio will help deliver on our promise to create smarter, safer and stronger communities for our clients,” said Brian Combs, president of Tyler’s Platform Solutions Division, in the statement.

This new deal follows Tyler’s acquisition of Computing System Innovations, or CSI.

The Orlando-based firm was founded in 1987 and sold artificial intelligence-based automation, redaction and indexing services for courts, recorders, attorneys and others.
