"Our local businesses were pushing for a self-service portal, and even agreed to accommodate an increase in fees if necessary for the city to purchase a new technology solution," said Mike Mayta, Chief Information Officer, City of Wichita. "This led us to Infor Public Sector because of the Dynamic Portal module, which now facilitates faster, easier communication by providing us with a direct connection to our contracted workers."

"The city and county had numerous employees and departments that completed similar daily tasks and performed comparable functions," said Sherry Brace, senior administrative officer, Sedgwick County. "Decision-makers knew that by consolidating our resources and deploying the same technology application as the city, we could successfully provide superior shared services to constituents and reduce budgetary spending."
"In light of recent spending cuts, local governments are looking to make technology investments that will help them to better utilize resources," said Kevin Curry, SVP, Public Sector, Infor. "Infor Public Sector delivers the connectivity and process automation necessary to allow our customers to successfully employ a shared services model by acting as a single solution to meet each department's needs."
