The district will use Enterprise Financial Management, Payroll, HR Management, Time & Attendance, Asset Maintenance and Performance, and Content Manager, which will be powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS).

“We are excited to invest in the technology that will help support our mission of developing scholars through world-class learning experiences,” said Earl Burke, chief finance and operations officer for Jackson Public Schools. “By having a robust and user-friendly ERP system in place, our staff can focus on what is most important, which is serving our students. We look forward to the increased efficiency that Tyler’s solution will bring to our district.”

JPS desired a fully integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) system that offered enhanced functionality, such as vendor and employee access deployed in a cloud-based environment. It selected Tyler as the single solution provider capable of providing all required functionality with the addition of enhanced reporting capabilities. With the system in place, JPS will have complete integration across all modules, from payroll to HR to financial management.

Tyler’s Enterprise ERP solution will assist in breaking down departmental data silos, streamlining processes, and eliminating duplicate data entry.

HR Management will allow the district to easily manage personnel and payroll data and processes, handling employee recruitment, development, and performance management in one integrated system. By deploying Enterprise ERP in the cloud, JPS will benefit from a secure and flexible solution that is always up to date.
