Tyler Technologies acquires Canadian mobile public safety start-up SceneDoc
“We are pleased to add SceneDoc to the Tyler family, enhancing our public safety offerings through a mobile-first approach,” said Lynn Moore, president and chief executive officer of Tyler. “Public safety continues to embrace new approaches and tools which keep officers engaged with their communities, and this aligns well with Tyler’s vision for empowering smarter, safer, and more vibrant communities.”
Smartphones, tablets, wearables and task-specific apps are quickly becoming first responders’ primary tools for communicating in the field, the company said. To address this growing market trend within law enforcement, SceneDoc “enables field capture of data, electronic notes and multi-media from these devices with secure storage and access to and from the Cloud.”
“Our vision for technology in this particular market, combined with our company culture, aligns well with Tyler’s, and we look forward to leveraging our new resources to serve even more law enforcement agencies and their communities,” said Alex Kottoor, co-founder and CEO of SceneDoc.
Founded in 2011, SceneDoc is based in Mississauga, Ont., and employs 18 people. SceneDoc management and staff will become part of Tyler’s Public Safety Division, and its employees are expected to remain in their current locations. Kottoor and co-founder Adrian Bubalo will also join Tyler as general managers.
