We look forward to streamlining processes, increasing transparency, and bringing quantifiable efficiencies to our people and staff.”

The city of Lawton is looking forward to many benefits from Tyler’s solutions, including

  • Reduced paper as a result of electronic ticketing for law enforcement
  • Automated reporting capabilities for staff
  • Minimized user error because of the switch from paper-based to electronic processes
  • Better access for constituents, including the ability to pay bills online
  • Increased transparency, especially when it comes to making city finances available to the public
