We Provide Long-Term Return on Your Investment Tyler offers perpetual licensing, which ensures you always have access to the most current technology and functionality. You won’t need to pay relicensing fees when new versions of your licensed software are released. This not only protects your investment, it minimizes disruptions during deployment of new functionality and minimizes the need for retraining after a significant update. It works; we have taken clients from DOS-based systems purchased in 1979 to Web-based systems in 2014 — all without relicensing fees. Learn more about evergreen »
