7/19/17 – The Dodge County Board Tuesday night approved the purchase of new software that will connect departments county-wide. The current program has been in place since 1996 and was established to bring all financial records into one place. Finance Director Julie Kolp says that system is now outdated and needs updating. She says the new program will help improve day to day operations throughout the county through efficiencies and automated work-flows. The ERP system, or Enterprise Resource Planning, is a way for organizations to utilize computer software to manage many of the office-related functions such as technology services and human resources. The program will be purchased through Tyler Technologies and is called Munis. The preliminary cost is a little over $1-million dollars but Kolp says that price is still in negotiations and could potentially be lower. The goal is to have the software in place before the end of the year.
