Paladin Data Systems Corporation announces the successful launch of Paladin’s new Utility Billing module in Yakima, WA. Utility Billing is the latest module added to Paladin’s InterLocking Software suite of local government solutions which includes Permit & Planning, Inspections, Code Enforcement, Business Licensing and Animal Licensing.
The Utility Billing module is a full featured utility billing and cash receipting system for local government clients. The module manages all aspects of municipal utility management including customer service, service orders, deposits, routes, bill processing, notifications, and delinquency and collection processes. Utilizing a centralized contact and service provider repository, the system tracks and archives customer data including utility usage, payment history, service orders and cut-in and cut-out processes. Functionality also includes in-depth reporting tools and online payments.
The unified Utility Billing solution will automate and manage the City of Yakima’s billing and collection processes for metered and non-metered utility services such as Water, Irrigation, Waste Water, Refuse, Gas, Electric, Streetlights and Hydrants.
Paladin’s Chief Operating Officer, Dan Burton, explains: “Paladin is excited to add Utility Billing to its InterLocking Software suite of local government solutions. InterLocking Software is a modular based system. This means the Utility Billing module can function on its own or work seamlessly together to produce a land management solution suite tailored specifically for a government agency. The Utility Billing module was developed in cooperation with the City of Yakima. It was designed to provide a robust set of features as well as ultimate flexibility in how the system is configured to support multiple billing methods needed by the city now and in the future.”
Yakima implemented the full suite of InterLocking Software modules in 2009, while preparing for the custom developed utility management system. Additional fee based service management options are also being investigated that will improve Yakima’s ability to manage public services , as well as enhance options for other cities and counties utilizing InterLocking Software for their land management processes.
