Software Plus Services
NCTCOG has selected a Tectura Corporation proposal to offer a software plus services subscription-based solution that ties together financial, procurement, human resources, payroll, utility billing, work order management, permitting, and other functions to public sector entities. While there has been a move for quite some time to offer subscription-based software, this solution is one of the first programs in place for public sector entities. This offering will provide an opportunity for NCTCOG customers to enhance their information technology capabilities including streamlined internal operations and online information access for citizens. For entities favoring the traditional purchase approach to software acquisition, this software is also available through that procurement model.
