Congratulations to St. Louis Park and New Hope, who are now live on LOGIS’ new Parks and Recreation system offering. The new system is called “RecTrac,” and is developed by Vermont Systems Incorporated of Burlington, Vermont. Another city is expected to go live on the new system in the next few weeks. The remaining six cities will be converted to RecTrac in two groups: one group in early spring of 2015 and one group in early fall of 2015.
Over the past several months, LOGIS staff has been meticulously programming and testing the latest flavor of the new PIMS user interface project. The new version illustrates enhanced functionality, with a different look.
This improvement allows us to keep up with cutting edge technology and take advantage of many new features, moving forward with the PIMS application.
The time is winding down and my days are limited as a LOGIS employee. As retirement looms closer, I have been reflecting on my time spent providing support to our members. LOGIS has provided me so many opportunities supporting utility billing, payroll, and other applications.
The majority of my time has been spent supporting Utility Billing. I have seen our membership move to the ‘new’ LOGIS utility billing legacy system, adding touch and radio read meters, cash scanning, ACH, the year 2000 become a reality, technology making huge advances, laser printing bills and then outsourcing bill print, implementing CIS Infinity, upgrading to a new version, adding online bill view/pay, implementing new members, and numerous other advances.
During this month of Thanksgiving, I want to thank you all for 20 wonderful years and making my job exciting, interesting, challenging, and most of all, fun. You have all enriched my life and inspired me in so many ways.
Recently LOGIS successfully completed a disaster recovery test of the Property Data & Special Assessments applications.
Annually LOGIS staff review and update all disaster recovery documentation, then preforms a test to verify we would be able to bring the applications online from the recovery site. In the event of a major disaster LOGIS needs to know the applications are able to run from the recovery site and we have everything in place to meet current business requirements.
These tests help LOGIS staff ensure we would be able to recover with minimal application downtime.
