PLANO, Texas--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) has completed the purchase of a complex in Latham, New York, near the Albany International Airport, as the new site for its transportation solutions operation. Tyler’s transportation team provides the K-12 market with transportation technology, including Versatrans®, Traversa®, and Tyler Drive™, its newest mobile solution for school bus drivers.
“There is amazing talent in the Capital District, and we are committed to hiring exceptional people locally”
Tyler will move staff from its current Latham office in late 2017, after some extensive renovations. The updated building will feature:
- An open design with collaborative spaces conducive for software development
- Numerous skylights and large windows to allow for natural lighting
- A campus-like atmosphere with four office areas and a 10,000-square-foot conference center
- Two interior courtyards and 10-acre wooded lot
Tyler entered the K-12 transportation market in 2008 via the acquisition of Versatrans Solutions. Since then, the transportation staff has nearly doubled in size, and revenues have more than tripled, making Tyler the leading provider in this space. In the past five years, Tyler’s Latham staff has grown 57 percent, and the company plans to hire 15 positions for the Latham location in 2017.
“There is amazing talent in the Capital District, and we are committed to hiring exceptional people locally,” said Ted Thien, vice president and general manager for Tyler’s transportation group. “The building is exactly what we needed to support our current growth, and the renovations will create space for approximately 175 people.”
Other Tyler office locations have also experienced recent growth. At the company’s headquarters in Plano, Texas, additional office space opened in 2016 to accommodate growing staff numbers, and Tyler is in the process of building an additional 94,500 square feet of space for the ERP & Schools Division headquarters in Yarmouth, Maine, expected to be completed by November 2017.
