Charlotte County, Florida, Live on TaxSys® — Grant Street Group’s Web-Based Tax Collection and Billing SystemSeptember 13, 2010
Pittsburgh, PA (September 13, 2010) – Today, Grant Street Group announced that the Charlotte County Tax Collector is now live on TaxSys®, Grant Street Group’s state-of-the-art, web-based tax collection and billing system. Charlotte County collects over $292 million in property taxes on more than 234,000 parcels and is the eleventh Florida Tax Collector that has successfully converted to TaxSys since the system was launched in 2006.
“We are very excited to be live on TaxSys,” said Vickie Potts, Charlotte County Tax Collector. “TaxSys integrates all of our collection software into one solution. We can cashier all our transactions in one spot – our accounting system interfaces with TaxSys, and we have direct interfaces with the State DMV and drivers’ license systems. TaxSys will let us serve the people of Charlotte County in a more economical and efficient way. We look forward to the immediate and long term benefits of using the system,” continued Ms. Potts.
The Charlotte County Tax Collector’s conversion to TaxSys began on April 15, 2010 and took five months to complete. This included conversion to Grant Street Group’s debit and credit card processing solution, PaymentExpress™, which is also fully integrated with TaxSys.
“Grant Street’s conversion and project management is top notch,” said Christine Lee, IT Director for the Charlotte County Tax Collector and point person overseeing the implementation. “Every step of the transition – from converting data, establishing interfaces, customizing reports, to end-user training – could not have been smoother, and was completed on time,” continued Ms. Lee.
“The Charlotte County Tax Collector is a significant addition to Grant Street’s client base. Charlotte exemplifies the growing trend of Florida Tax Collectors recognizing the benefits of selecting a single provider for a hosted, web-based tax collection system with a full suite of integrated specialty products. We congratulate Charlotte on their successful conversion, which is a testimonial to their own professionalism and organization,” said Ian Yorty, Grant Street Group’s Director of Florida Business Development.
Eleven Florida Tax Collectors currently use TaxSys. Miami-Dade County, the country’s 5th largest, is Grant Street’s newest client and scheduled to complete their implementation in the fall of 2011. Grant Street Group’s commitment to providing unparalleled client support is evidenced with over 45 professionals devoted solely to supporting TaxSys for Florida Tax Collectors.
