Technology Shared Services

For many communities, it’s a familiar predicament. They’re tied to aging financial, human resources, payroll and procurement software systems that no longer deliver the functionality, integration or support they require. Yet these communities often lack the financial and information technology (IT) resources to pursue the implementation of an industry-current, web-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.

Now, communities have a highly attractive option: NCTCOG's
Shared Services Center.

In a nutshell, the Shared Services Center enables your community to migrate rapidly to hosted “tier-one” ERP applications — without the costs, risks, logistical challenges or maintenance issues inherent with an in-house installation. These web-based, integrated applications encompass:

  • Human capital management
  • Financial management and reporting
  • Budget formulation and execution
  • Procurement
  • Employee and manager self-service
  • Workflow and process automation
  • Document imaging
  • Integrated information access
  • These mission-critical business systems are hosted by the Shared Services Center which includes a secure data center with comprehensive backup, disaster recovery and business continuity capabilities.

    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.
