Tyler’s Evergreen Philosophy

Protecting and extending your investment through perpetual licensing

When you make an investment in technology, you need it to deliver a solid return today and over the long term. That’s why we are committed to providing you with the most current technology available, while protecting and extending your initial investment through predictable pricing and reliable performance.

When you purchase software solutions from Tyler, you aren’t just getting the latest software of the date you sign your contract. You are also getting the benefit of perpetual upgrades, as they happen. We deliver this without additional license fees. Product upgrades are released as part of maintenance agreements and are immediately available.

Committed to Your Success

Our evergreen philosophy is a commitment to our clients, and it means

  • Your investment in our products is for the long term.
  • Your Tyler product will continue to evolve and remain a market leader.
  • We are continuously enhancing our products with underlying technology.
  • We are continuously adding new features that add value and increase efficiency in the public sector workplace.

Perpetual Upgrades

Both on-premises and SaaS clients receive new releases and upgrades for the life of their maintenance or subscription agreements. Tyler deploys industry leading technology and features that are continually enhanced through a process of perpetual upgrades — a steady stream of significant yet manageable changes deployed over the life of the application with minimal disruption to our clients’ operations — with no relicensing fees and minimal changes to our core business logic.

This is a much better experience for our clients than deploying massive changes every 5-7 years that require retraining and costly upgrades. Clients can incorporate these changes and advancements when they are ready without disruption of ongoing work.
