California City Modernizes Business Processes With New World Systems

TROY, Mich., Feb. 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Salinas, California is working with New World Systems® to gain efficiencies and provide better services to residents.

The city of Salinas recently licensed New World Systems Logos.NET™ Public Administration Suite, including:

  • Financial Management
  • Payroll & Human Resources
  • Community Development
  • eSuite Self-Service
  • Decision Support

This software replaces a 30-year-old homegrown system that no longer meets the city's needs, according to the Finance Director for the city of Salinas, Matt Pressey. With New World, the city will be able to increase and automate its workflow for initiating, approving, and executing requisitions for purchase orders, staffing requests, budget adjustments, invoices, and timesheets.

These changes benefit the city by eliminating paper processes, providing better services to residents, and increasing government transparency.

Pressey said the city's decision to go with New World was based on 15 site visits to neighboring communities already using Logos.NET and positive feedback received from those municipalities. The decision was further supported by the fact that New World is employee-owned, has more than 30 years of public sector experience, spends millions of dollars on research and development, and is pro-active in customer relations, according to Pressey.

"The customers we spoke to are happy because New World's products work the way the customers want them to work," Pressey said. "That's the key."

Salinas has a population of more than 155,000 and is the county seat for Monterey County, which is known as the Salad Bowl of the World. Salinas is also the birthplace of Nobel-Prize winning author John Steinbeck and serves as the setting for many of his novels. The city's primary industry is agriculture, and it is recognized as a hub for agricultural technology. Salinas is also located in close proximity to Silicon Valley, which contributes to the city's diverse community and role in the global economy.

"We're happy to be working with a software provider like New World," Salinas Mayor Joe Gunter said. "New World's reputation as a local government ERP provider speaks for itself. Our new system will benefit those working in our local government offices and ultimately the citizens themselves."

Trusted by more than 2,000 public sector organizations nationwide, New World Systems designs, develops, markets, supports and implements the integrated Logos.NET™ Public Administration Suite for local governments and Aegis™ Suite of Public Safety Solutions for Law Enforcement, Fire and EMS.
