solutions overview With an Edmunds & Associates solution, a true Windows application with a graphical user interface is delivered. All applications are ODBC compliant and utilize a SQL database which allows for seamless integration with products such as MS Excel™, MS Word™ and many GIS packages, to name a few. Security - The software features a single sign-on approach that allows for user based security. This provides access to modules based on the employee’s security profile. The security is module specific and task specific. Integration - All modules are fully integrated. A single source of entry minimizes data entry errors and streamlines organizational processes. The system dynamically posts all related entries to the appropriate modules. Reporting - Along with standard system reports, customized reporting is also provided. Through built-in custom reporting tools, users can create and save reports that can be exported directly into MS Excel™. Reporting flexibility allows users to create unlimited custom reports that are accessible at any time. PDF Forms - All required forms can be generated within the application. This reduces the need to have preprinted forms, such as pre-printed checks or utility bills. Create customized letters by merging in any field from the system. Letters can be created, printed, and documented in the corresponding record. Attachments - The ability to attach any type of file to records, accounts, and employees along with scanning images directly into the software is provided. There is no limitation with the amount or size of those items you wish to attach.

permitting & code enforcement Permitting and Code Enforcement enables a municipality to issue any type of permit and issue code violations. Permitting self-service allows the resident to apply for permits, check the status of a permit, review scheduled inspections, and make payments via the web. Enforcement provides users the ability to track complaints, store photos, issue fines, and print notices and letters. Once an inspector’s schedule is in the system, an inspection calendar can be utilized for scheduling new inspections, viewing currently scheduled inspections, and recording inspection results. Parcel ID’s integrate throughout the system to display all municipal charges.

web based applications Edmunds has a full suite of web based modules that allow your office to be accessible 24/7. With these modules, customers can view and pay bills online, residents can log complaints and request service, employees can view time off, and much more. WIPP allows residents to view and pay their tax and utility bills online. Employee self-service (ess) allows employees to manage their information online from anywhere. The dashboard integrates with the finance and payroll modules and provides fiscal transparency and accountability. User defined tabs allow for non-financial information to be displayed, such as public safety statistics.
Our growth has been exclusively from the implementation of new clients rather than the acquisitions of companies providing similar software in other geographic locations. Edmunds is happy to have added clients up and down the East Coast each and every year.
