Hitech Solutions Inc Enables Fast-Growing
Countyr to Proide Constituents With Innovative Online Services.
One of the fastest growing counties in the United States
needed to expand and improve their infrastructure. The primary
source of funding for this critical expansion was property
taxes. The county relied on manual, outdated processes for
property tax collection and it proved to be a bottleneck and
created constant cash flow concerns.
Faced with this pressing need, county leaders decided to
offer county services through the Internet. The goal was to
make it easier for tax payers to do business with the county
while also laying the foundation for a brader improvement
in the county's capability to service the rapidly expanding
population through several new web-enabled applications. The
first step in this strategic plan was to develop a web-based
tool to enable onlne tax payments.
Hitech Solutions Inc captured and
documented the desires of county leaders while simultaneously
conducting a full assessment of the technology environment.
With this information, Hitech Solutions
Inc designed a new application and database that not
only met all the requirements, but also made development of
subsequent applications much easier.
Using the advanced capabilities of Microsoft's ASP.NET technology,
Hitech Solutions Inc developed the
application and associated database. During the process, Hitech
Solutions Inc created a routine for informal training
and knowledge transfer on the use and application of the Microsoft
development environment to the county's professional IT staff.
Separately, Hitech Solutions Inc
implemented a formal project management methodology and procedures
to help guide future development efforts.
This is the first step in the county's overall Internet enablement
strategy. Feedback from constituents and county employee is
overwhelmingly positive for the streamlined tax payment process.
Because of Hitech Solutions Inc's
efforts, the bottleneck was eliminated and the county is planning
to expand its web-based services.
