TROY, Mich., May 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The City of Canton, Ohio is implementing new technology and local government software to streamline operations and improve access to information city wide. The City has selected New World Systems' suite of Logos.NET™ Public Administration solutions to replace several aging systems. New World's integrated software will help the City reduce redundant data entry, eliminate disparate systems and allow employees to accomplish much more in less time.
"New World's software really opened our eyes to the efficiency gains that are possible with a truly integrated system," said Patrick Barton, Director of Information Technology. "When something is updated in one application, that information is quickly available throughout the suite without the need to rekey data. The fact that New World's software is built on the latest Microsoft technology with a familiar look and feel also means more of our employees will have an easier transition to the new system."
New World is providing the City of Canton with the full suite of Logos.NET software including Financial Management, Payroll and Human Resources, Utility Management, Community Development, Decision Support and Business Analytics, and eSuite applications. Because the solution is built from the ground up on the Microsoft.NET platform and does not require significant customizations, anyone familiar with Microsoft Office® can quickly learn how to use the software. It offers an added bonus of integration between Logos.NET and the Microsoft applications employees use every day, including Excel®. This will dramatically improve reporting, analytics and access to financial information for managers, employees and citizens.
City officials are looking forward to properly decentralizing business processes and providing on-line self-service capabilities to employees and citizens in the future. During times of declining revenues and resources, the City will use New World's software to better serve more than 73,000 residents and do more with less.
Trusted by more than 1,000 public sector organizations nationwide, New World Systems designs, develops, markets, supports and implements the integrated Logos™ Public Administration Suite for local governments and the Aegis™ Suite of Public Safety Solutions for Law Enforcement, Fire and EMS.
