Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) June 20, 2011
SIRE Technologies, a leader in electronic document management and agenda automation software, has been selected by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation (MPTN) to replace its existing, outdated legislative management system with SIRE’s solution suite.
SIRE will be implementing its agenda management module, Agenda Plus, video streaming module, Video Plus, and its electronic document management system at the MPTN office. Software end-users will include: tribal council members, tribal council staff, legislative operations staff, legal officials, and records management staff. The software will be used daily for agenda management, recording of minutes, legislative research, and for transparent communication with MPTN citizens.
SIRE will be replacing a very outdated legislative management system. This system was custom built on proprietary technology that is no longer supported, and does not feature a workflow component. Due to this, legislative operations staff must coordinate routing and approval of agenda items through email before transferring the data back into the existing legislative management system. After the implementation of SIRE Agenda Plus, all routing and approvals will become automated and electronic through SIRE’s robust and configurable [workflow module.
As part of this implementation, SIRE’s project team will convert 30 years of legacy data from the Nation’s existing solution into SIRE’s single, electronic document repository. According to Timothy Walker, Systems Development Manager, MIS Tribal Government Systems, SIRE was able to demonstrate its ability to accurately translate this data, therefore preserving 30 years of vital records. “We had been told by other vendors that it would be impossible to translate our legacy data to a new system,” Walker said.
Walker believes that SIRE’s full context search feature will be the largest benefit to the Nation. The existing system’s searching capabilities are limited, and all users must know the system entirely in order to look for documents in the correct places. With the implementation of SIRE, all of that will change. All of the Nation’s data will be centralized in one database with specific, full-text search capabilities included.
