Reboot of Nashua's technology continues
“There is still a lot of work to do,” said Bruce Codagnone, the city’s information technology director.
A 35-year old ADMINS, Inc., system was the first item to be tackled since there is no longer hardware to support the program, he said. The city has since deployed an enterprise resource planning system, a new software program that assists with payroll, purchasing and the general ledger.
As the city grows, Codagnone said, it was critical for the local government to keep pace with emerging technology, especially when it can significantly improve collaboration, online capabilities and application consolidation.
While Codagnone praised the steering committee and its efforts, he said the team may have tried to do too much too soon since lofty goals were set in the initial phases.
One of the largest parts of the initiative is new tax and billing software that will directly benefit local taxpayers, Codagnone said.
Transferring from the ADMINS system to the Infor Lawson program should not take a lot of time to perfect, but it is a cultural change for the employees who are accustomed to using a certain product, he said, adding the technology improvements will be incredibly useful for not only city employees, but local residents as well as they utilize city departments and website content.
City staff has embraced the project, according to John Griffin, chief financial officer for Nashua.
The State of New Hampshire also utilizes Infor Lawson, as well as a local hospital, according to Codagnone.
