Toronto-based SceneDoc has been acquired by Tyler Technologies, a Texas-based provider of information management solutions and services for local governments.
Launched in 2011, SceneDoc provides a digital evidence management platform for law enforcement agencies. SceneDoc management and staff will become part of Tyler’s Public Safety Division, and its employees are expected to remain in their current locations. Co-founder and CEO Alex Kottoor and co-founder and COO Adrian Bubalo will also join Tyler as general managers.
“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 CEO 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. We believe the addition of SceneDoc to our best-in-class product portfolio will address the evolving needs of the jurisdictions we serve, from small municipalities to large counties.”
For SceneDoc, the acquisition will help it expand its field reporting software to law enforcement agencies across the US by leveraging Tyler’s client base and sales organization.
“We are excited at the opportunity to join Tyler Technologies and further enhance Tyler’s presence in the public safety market through our solution,” said Koottor. “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.”
In 2015, SceneDoc closed a $4 million Series A led by Toronto’s iGan Partners, with participation from Motorola Solutions Venture Capital out of the US. The company raised an undisclosed funding round last year.
