Project Scope:

Project 1: Customize and Integrate Software

The client is in the final stages of completing an addendum to their assessment tool agreement designed to modernize their current system. Given the enormous volume of transactions, this software will have a significant impact on productivity and accuracy. However, due to the Cobol-based legacy system and attendant manual processes, implementation requires significant customization and development. The Applications Developer will be automating significant functions.

Project 2: E-File and Paper Filing Enhancements

Manually processing, tracking and correcting business property statements is an exhaustive process involving review of account information, manual calculations, reimaging, and data entry. The process involves professional and clerical staff and is unnecessarily time-consuming with a high potential of error. E-file enhancements will include workflow tracking, assessment anomaly flagging, selective assessment review and correction, and integration with the electronic filing system intended to improve efficiency and accuracy.

Project 3: Business Data Discovery

The client has implemented a discovery program through the development of a data-matching tool to find businesses that are out of compliance with licensing. Discovery methods include the automatic integration of various databases.

Project 4: Automating Supplemental Corrections

The Applications Dev will be improving automation of this process to reduce manual calculation and potential for errors.
