Tyler to Collaborate with Samsung on Public-Safety Wearables
Monday, October 23, 2017 | Comments

Tyler Technologies announced a collaboration with Samsung Electronics America in the Samsung Enterprise Alliance Program (SEAP) to create products for public-safety agencies. This program provides partners with access to more device features and technologies on Samsung mobile devices.

Tyler is working with Samsung to develop wearable smart device applications that will integrate with New World public-safety software. The initial wearable device will be available on the Samsung Gear S3, Samsung’s newest smart watch that is compatible with most Android smartphones. Providing a wearable device helps improve access to mission-critical information for first responders without adding to the bulk of the devices they are already required to carry.

In 2015, Tyler acquired New World Systems for $360 million.

“This collaboration is a perfect fit for Tyler’s New World public-safety solution as we aim to provide best-in-class software for first responders,” said Brian Leary, Tyler’s vice president of software strategy and development for New World. “The Samsung Gear S3 is just the start of the innovative plans we have with Samsung, and we look forward to providing additional benefits to our current and future clients.”

This wearable technology will add to the product offerings available in Tyler’s New World public-safety solution, which includes CAD, law enforcement records management, mobile and field reporting, corrections, analytics, fire and EMS solutions. Samsung partner software solutions can be better tailored to meet the needs of public-safety end users with Samsung’s defense-grade mobile security platform protecting the devices from hardware through software layers, a statement said.

“Through the Samsung Alliance Program, we work with partners like Tyler Technologies to create new solutions that combine their transformative technologies with Samsung’s mobility expertise," said Jan Ruderman, senior director, public safety, Samsung Electronics America. “In this instance, we’re bringing the power of untethered, Long Term Evolution (LTE)-enabled mobility with the Samsung Gear S3 smart watch to public-safety agencies, enabling them to modernize elements of their existing technology systems without a complete overhaul.”
