After 31 months of hard work, the MIPS staff has completed the largest development cycle we have ever taken on. All 70 MIPS counties (plus 1 TerraScan county) have been upgraded to the new Treasurer Application. The new PC Treasurer Application began in January of 2017 right after the programming staff returned from training in California and Texas. The new system is a combination of our older AS400 system, our older PC system, and feedback received from counties and the State Auditor’s Office.
While the new system was being designed and written, another huge task was underway. MIPS took orders for hundreds of PCs and micro counter computers. Our 3 hardware installers had multiple cars running in all directions trying to get equipment installed. This new equipment was purchased not only to accommodate our new Treasurer Application, but for the new DMV System as well.
