City of Springfield Quotes
"Infor's new software architecture and robust web services provide hard cost savings for the City. The .net architecture delivers internet access to the application compared to client installs on individual workstations, reducing effort on average from 45 minutes to 5 minutes per client," said Brandt Melick, technical services division manager with the Development and Public Works Department for City of Springfield, Ore. "Two examples of the web services API integration are the Regional Land Information Database (RLID) and the City's PeopleSoft human resources application. These interfaces eliminate redundancy in two key areas: 1) maintenance of information associated with the City's 24,229 site addresses (site location, site address, site zoning, relationship to property owner, etc.) and 2) maintenance of information associated the City's 400 employees (new hires, rate changes, status changes, etc.). As a result we can easily provide department-wide access to real-time data and streamline the decision making process with more reliable information."
