BS&A Case Studies

Angola, Indiana

The City of Angola, Indiana was seeking to add a building department application to their financial system. A robust building application was important, but even more so was the integration between each module. The city has big community development plans over the next several years, and they determined that they needed new financial management software in order to achieve their goals.

Another key need for the city was to be more closely linked with their county. They’ve partnered with Steuben County on making improvements to city streets and county roads, and will soon be linking Pokagon State Park with the city through a new recreational trail. With a rapidly developing community, it was important for Angola’s building department application to be linked with both their financial management system and Steuben County’s GIS system.

Clark County, Ohio

Clark County, Ohio is in the upper 25% of population and budgeted dollars in the state. Its economy is fairly stable financially, with a low unemployment rate. The County is one of its larger employers, with over 1,200 full- and part-time employees. It utilized local VMS software operated by ISSG in Springboro, Ohio. This was purchased in 1995 and implemented in 1998. VMS was to be converted to a Windows-based system, but the vendor never provided any updates other than minor ones needed to keep the system operable. The over-abundance of paper and storage of documents, as well as a need for a better way to track and report incoming and outgoing dollars, were factors in causing the County to look at new software.

Along with BS&A, the County evaluated Local Company Software Solutions, Inc. and Tyler Munis as possible vendors. “We chose BS&A because we believed they would meet and exceed our needs at the time of implementation. Another factor was that the software would be updated regularly and more than likely still in place come 20 years from now. The BS&A staff who demonstrated the software was knowledgeable of the inner workings of the software and did not have to rely on support staff to answer questions we posed to them, and the software was well liked by the customers we contacted as well as visited to view in action. BS&A was also able to demonstrate decentralization of services where the other vendors said they could, but their users were hesitant to agree…the site visits did not show the decentralization working in the field for other vendors, but it did work with BS&A.” – Bob Venderhorst
