Jonesboro, AR (PRWEB) May 5, 2009
Continental Utility Solutions, Inc. (CUSI) (http://www.cusi.com) has announced their successful implementation of UMS.Net Utility Billing software for Brushy Creek Municipal Utility District located in Round Rock, Texas. Integrated with Sage MIP Fund Accounting, UMS.Net provides a complete utility billing and accounting solution that has enabled Brushy Creek to significantly reduce operating expenses, automate their billing process, completely eliminate manual and duplicate data entry, and improve operational control and reporting visibility.
According to Mike Petter, Brushy Creek Municipal Utility District Controller, "Our old system crashed just about every time we billed. And our staff spent countless hours manually transferring data from billing to accounting which resulted in frequent errors and reports that were completely unreliable."
Now that Brushy Creek uses UMS.net Utility Billing integrated with Sage MIP Fund Accounting, Mike says, "The same process that took 2 to 3 hours every day transferring data from billing to accounting now requires nothing more than the push of a button. In fact, the integration alone will pay for the entire UMS.Net utility billing system." In addition, Mike adds, "UMS.Net has allowed us to reduce our billing staff which is saving us at least $35,000 a year in salary and benefits."
Not only is Brushy Creek saving a tremendous amount of time administratively, reports are more accurate and reliable which has enabled them to make better operational decisions, determine which departments are making money and which aren't, and improve cash flow by billing customers more quickly when they've fallen behind.
CUSI, a Sage Endorsed Development Partner, developed UMS.net as a state‐of‐the‐art utility billing and customer information system designed for public utilities that want to leverage technology to more efficiently managing their customers, maximizing resources, and lower operating costs.
"We've developed a powerful utility billing software platform leveraging the latest in .net technology," said Mike Guerriero, CUSI President. "With UMS.net, utility districts benefit from a truly integrated billing and accounting environment. Not only will they operate more efficiently, they'll save money for the communities they serve."
