Managed Services Announcements

Date Posted:

Recently LOGIS has transitioned three of our pilot projects for Managed Services into full production.  These pilot projects allowed our members to utilize the LOGIS facilities/systems by:

  1. Creating a redundant datacenter for our members by locating their backup SAN in the LOGIS data center and establishing replication of their data between sites.
  2. Setup of a redundant server network at LOGIS and utilizing the LOGIS data center to host their VM server environment for Active Directory and Exchange 2010 services.
  3. Replication of a member Compellent SAN to the LOGIS Compellent SANs to establish a backup environment.

All of these projects focused on establishing a member fault tolerant environment while greatly reducing their purchase and ongoing costs!

Accepted Credit Card Types with ePermits

Date Posted:

More and more cities are including other major credit cards to allow customers more flexibility when purchasing permits online. Since April 2003, the ePermits website only accepted Visa and MasterCard as a means of online payments. Currently, with the transformation of ePermits to PayPal’s Payflow Link product, cities can now select from a list of acceptable card types to offer their customers additional payment options.

UB Support Year-End Balancing and Reporting

Date Posted:

With the end of the year fast approaching it’s time to start thinking about year-end balancing and reporting.  Where do you begin?  First, determine what your cut-off time for accepting payments, processing bills, and adjustments will be on December 30th.  Update all open batches.

Year-end reports are similar to Month-end reports with the exception of date parameters.  Two point-in-time reports you need to run are the Aged Arrears Listing, which tracks aging data, and the Multiple A/R Summary Listing, which displays the balance in each A/R Account.  To identify the balance due on every account, you will need to run an Advanced Search from the Summary A/R Balance table.  The Block Summary report shows billed consumption while the Land Use report displays actual consumption.

This is a good time to setup the new year and month.   Be sure to not activate any month until the previous month is closed.  If your city acknowledges Statutory Holidays, we recommend you set up all 2012 holidays on December 30th as well.  Happy New Year Balancing and Reporting!
