Assessors requested a quick option to assist them in the verification of homesteaded properties. To qualify for homestead the property must be occupied by the owner or a family member.
A new option was added which will interface with the Permits and Inspections system to list all homestead properties, which also have a rental license issued. The assessors can then verify whether the property qualifies for homestead.
LOGIS has been working on developing and testing eLicenses at the request of many members. This feature builds upon existing animal and business licenses that are tracked and maintained within the PIMS system. eLicenses allows customers to renew business and animal licenses, and apply for new animal licenses. Customers are able to pay for their elicenses online.
eLicenses is moving into beta testing in January. Two member cities have volunteered to beta test and provide feedback.
The annual Harris Customer Training Conference took place November 15th – 17th. The event is an opportunity to increase technical and application knowledge, glean insight from peers and provide feedback for product improvement. The two-day pre-conference sessions held on November 13th – 14th, offer in-depth training on best practices for CIS Infinity.
Advanced Utility Systems, a subsidiary of Harris Computers, was represented by 22 employees. There were 176 registered attendees from 64 US clients. LOGIS has been a regular attender of the Customer Training Conference and finds the networking opportunities to be invaluable. Three client-led sessions were on the agenda this year with topics including realizing AMI potential to lessons learned upgrading from Version 3 to Version 4. Client-led sessions are a big success as it allows CIS Infinity clients to network with industry peers.
VSI recently sent out a “VSI Connect” message alerting RecTrac users to a possible issue with Windows 10 major updates. The Windows 10 upgrade process has the potential for removing VIC from your PC without your permission. This is a problem with Microsoft and Windows; it cannot be controlled by RecTrac or VSI.
Fortunately, this only happens to PCs running Windows 10, and only during major upgrades (like the recent Windows 10 Creators Update). Also, it only happens some of the time. (But there is no data to suggest the probability of it happening.)
VSI is researching this situation, but for now, the work-around is to re-install VIC if the Windows 10 upgrade process deletes it (usually done by your IT department).
