Iowa's Largest Counties Upgrade Software with Manatron

PORTAGE, Mich., Nov. 18, 2010 — (PRNewswire) — Manatron, Inc., a global leader in providing integrated property tax and records management software for state and local governments, today announced that it has been awarded the contracts for Iowa's Polk and Linn counties, which will utilize Manatron's GRM integrated property tax software and related professional services.

Through a competitive RFP process, Polk County selected Manatron based on the company's wealth of knowledge in the marketplace, as well as the high-value functionality and features of its products.  Polk, Iowa's largest county, which also includes the state's largest city (Des Moines), serves a constituency of more than 430,000 and its offices are responsible for the property tax revenues exceeding $1 billion annually.  Manatron expects to launch the GRM software in Polk County in late 2011.  

Mary Maloney, Polk County treasurer stated: "Manatron was the logical choice for Polk County.  They have worked with us every step of the way to make certain all areas are integrated to work seamlessly.  We are confident this software will increase efficiency and reduce maintenance on hardware, ultimately saving money for the county."

Linn County, the second largest county in Iowa, has a population of 200,000 and its offices are responsible for the billing, collection and apportionment of property tax revenues of more than $300 million annually.  Manatron plans to roll out the first components of its Linn County GRM installation in late 2011.

"Working with Manatron, Linn County will be able to greatly accelerate our data documentations and information request fulfillment, giving the County an easy, cost-effective way to report county records," said Vickie Dippel, Linn County deputy treasurer.  "Prior to working with Manatron, recording data was a time-intensive, manual process that cost the County's IT staff valuable hours given our outdated system.  We are excited to implement this new software, which will enable us to focus on other key county initiatives."

The counties were seeking to replace their current systems with updated software capable of integrating key departments.  Manatron's GRM software is a Microsoft .NET-established program that is entirely web-based.  It includes cutting-edge technology that improves system accessibility, while also improving overall data security.  The program is expected to reduce work for treasurer's departments and IT staff, thanks to an integrated database and automatic interfaces allowing user-friendly functionality and customizable features.  

"We are excited to begin working with Polk and Linn counties and look forward to providing additional software services across the state of Iowa in the future," said Bill McKinzie, Manatron president and CEO. "As we launch our GRM product into the Midwest market, we are certain both counties will greatly benefit from the many integration and efficiency features this software provides."

As part of their service contract with Manatron, Polk and Linn counties will receive ongoing software and technical support, legislative updates, product enhancements, integration with the latest technology and new software releases as they become available.
