LOGIS extends a welcome to the cities of Edina and Shakopee to the eProperty application.
eProperty is an extension of the LOGIS Special Assessment application, which allows the citizens of a city to do real time online lookups of special assessments assessed on their property. This has generally reduced the number of phone calls received by city staff.
We are happy to announce the City of Alexandria will be joining LOGIS and using our PIMS (Permit and Inspections Management System) software relating to permit issuance, inspection tracking, and inspection scheduling.
We will meet with staff to begin data discovery and establish goals and objectives for each stage of the project.
Following database migration, we will begin code table set-up and manually entering permits in a training database to assimilate the process of data entry. This helps the user maneuver within the system using their own data, confirm fee calculations, and become familiar with recording permit data which promotes proficiency within the system.
City staff will also undergo extensive training relating to all aspects of the permit system, including entering inspection results and scheduling inspections. City staff will continue to practice inputting data following training, until they are comfortable using the application in live mode.
Alexandria would like to go live on the PIMS system Spring 2017. The PIMS team is eager to work with the City of Alexandria and look forward to a successful PIMS implementation.
Please join us in welcoming the City of Alexandria to LOGIS and PIMS!
There will be a RecTrac User Group Meeting on April 5th, 2017 from 1:30 – 3:00 PM. This meeting will be somewhat unusual in that it will take place at the City of Eagan’s City Hall, in their “Eagan Room” instead of at the LOGIS offices. Eagan City Hall is located at 3830 Pilot Knob Road, Eagan, MN 55122. There is sure to be lots of lively discussion, so we hope to see you there!
The replacement of the current Electronic Bill Presentment and Payment solution is progressing quickly. Currently, eight Utility Billing Members have successfully had Go Lives with their vendor of choice. The cities are Brooklyn Center, Coon Rapids, Crystal, Eagan, Eden Prairie, Farmington, Maple Grove and South St Paul.
The cities of Richfield and St Louis Park have begun the implementation process. Three additional cities are in contract negotiations and are expected to finalize the agreement within the next few months.
If you have not made your vendor decision yet, please feel free to reach out to any of these cities to ask questions about their implementation process and what they might do differently. They have several useful tips to share.
The transition from Infinity.Link must begin by the end of 3rd Quarter, 2017.
