Escambia County Chooses Manatronís Integrated Property Tax Software Print E-mail
Written by Manatron   
Thursday, 19 April 2012

Portage, MIóApril 17, 2012ĖManatron, Inc., a global leader in providing integrated property tax and land administration software for governments worldwide, today announced that the Escambia County Tax Collector in Pensacola, Fla., has contracted with the company to implement its Government Revenue Management (GRM) Tax system, software that allows tax officials to maintain, bill, collect and distribute property and other taxes. The installation will be an upgrade from the Tax Collectorís current Manatron software Ė MVP Tax.  

The Escambia County Tax Collector selected Manatron based on the companyís experience in Escambia County and other counties in Florida, as well as for the technology and features of its software suite including multiple implementation options through SaaS, on-site and hosted deployments. Manatronís GRM installation positions the Escambia County Tax Collector to take advantage of the next generation of web-based software and will provide tax collector staff with more technical support and increased efficiency. The software also provides the tax collector with additional functionality for data query, reporting and analysis. The Escambia County Tax Collector is responsible for more than 160,000 parcels and is joining Sarasota County to become the second county in Florida to migrate to Manatronís GRM software from Manatronís MVP Tax system. Palm Beach County is also live on GRM Tax.

ďAfter an in-depth comparison of various systems, it became apparent that Manatronís GRM Tax software will not only provide us with the best technologies to meet our needs, but also the customer service and support to ensure its ongoing success.  We are eager to begin this new project,Ē said Janet Holley, Escambia County tax collector.

Throughout the implementation process, Manatron will be preparing the Escambia County Tax Collector for a more technically advanced future, as the new software will allow the office to improve communication and interaction with the taxpayers, while offering better use of departmental resources. Manatron expects to launch the software in 2012. 

ďWe are very excited the Escambia County Tax Collector has chosen to continue its relationship with Manatron and implement our GRM software,Ē said Bill McKinzie, senior vice president and general manager of the government segment for the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters. ďEscambia County is a key example of how a forward-thinking county can better serve its constituents by bringing in advanced technology.Ē
