About the Customer
Pittsburgh Public Schools is the public school district in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States, and adjacent Mount Oliver. The combined land area of these municipalities is 58.3 square miles with a population of 342,503 according to the 2000 census. In March 2012, Linda Lane was named as the superintendent.
Scope and Challenges
The district's existing ERP solution, in place for 15 years, lacks updated features and the appropriate level of vendor support to help manage its financial and HR information.
In addition, the current solution does not integrate well with third-party systems, which leads to the duplication of data and unnecessary manual processes. After an extensive review of several vendors, Pittsburgh Public Schools ultimately selected Tyler to provide Munis as a fully integrated ERP system that will serve all school locations.
Outcome and Implications
Munis will manage Pittsburgh Public Schools' financial and personal data while automating workflows between departments.
The solution will allow for greater transparency of the information for staff, and it will seamlessly integrate with existing third-party systems. Munis will also help to reduce manual processes and eliminate the duplication of data and information.
The platform is expected to go live by the end of 2018, eventually, the start of 2019.
"We look forward to providing our Munis solution to Pittsburgh Public Schools and know they will gain great efficiencies with our software within their many individual school locations. We understand the need to manage and protect important financial and personal information for a school client of this size, and we're confident that Munis will support their needs." - said Chris Hepburn, president of Tyler's ERP & School Division.
