Customer Success Story: Pinellas County Sheriff's Office

Pinellas County Sheriff's Office - 3,000 Employees

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office is located in Largo Florida and consists of nearly 3,000 employees in five major service bureaus. The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office looked to replace its outdated legacy system with a user friendly solution built on an open system platform and web based architecture. "We wanted a cost-effective solution that provided 21st century functionality that was easy for our employees to use," said Susan Dann, the Director of Fiscal Affairs for the Sheriff's office.

The Sheriff's Office considered financial solutions offered by Progressive System Solutions, Inc., SunGard's One Solution and Innoprise Software Inc. "We chose Innoprise because it was the solution that had all the components we were looking for," explained Dann. "It has the integrated financial package including General Ledger, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Budgeting, Cash Receipts, Fixed Asset, Payroll, Purchasing, Fleet and Human Resources," she continued.

Key business drivers for selecting Innoprise were an open system platform, Internet application and Web-based user interface. Innoprise's open system easily plugs into Pinellas' existing IT infrastructure. All Innoprise software modules provide users and citizens with easy access from any Internet connection. By selecting a Web-based solution, the Sheriff's Office minimized support costs during implementation since additional software did not need to be added to individual workstations. IT staff will be virtually uninvolved in future system upgrades.
