Dodge County Launches New Financial Software System

(Juneau) Dodge County recently launched a new software system that makes processing financial data more streamlined. The Enterprise Resource Planning Project officially went live on January 2nd. County Administrator Jim Mielke says the Tyler-Munis system touches all county departments and operational areas, providing efficiencies in budgeting and budget forecasting. The program also oversees various procedures including accounts payable and receivable, cash management, contracts and the payroll budget. The Tyler-Munis system replaces JD Edwards which had been in place since 1997 and was established to bring all financial records into one place. Mielke says following board approval in July of 2017, the Dodge County project team worked together and dedicated many hours to ensuring a successful implementation of the Tyler-Munis system. Tyler Project Manager Lindsey Fulton says in her fifteen years working with the company, the Dodge County team was the first client she worked with that showed 100-percent collaboration, dedication and focus on the success of the ERP implementation. Mielke expressed his appreciation for all county employees who supported the project over the past two-and-a-half years. Adding that the success of the project would not have been possible without them.
