September 4, 2013

BROOMFIELD, CO – September 4, 2013: Harris Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is pleased to announce that the City of Champaign, IL has gone live on the Innoprise Sales Tax module.

A GEMS customer since 2000, the City purchased the Innoprise Utility Billing, Tax and Citizen Access modules during the summer of 2012. The City also uses the GEMS Financial Management and Human Resources systems.

Jennifer Johnson, who works in Administrative Services of the Champaign Finance Department, had this to say about the recent implementation:

“We had a great experience working with Innoprise to implement the Sales Tax application. Gordon Veale is an excellent trainer. He worked closely with our team throughout the process. He is knowledgeable, responsive and patient. Now that we’re using the application, we are excited to see improvements in data integrity, reporting and overall efficiency. Our department will be exploring ways to expand the Innoprise Sales Tax application to help us work smarter in other areas of collections.”
