Morgan County, Illinois, Improves Public Access with DEVNET wEdge™

DEVNET and Morgan County, Illinois, are happy to announce that the county has chosen to improve public access to property information and provide up-to-date real-time data with DEVNET’s wEdge™ solution.

“Morgan County had been a DEVNET customer since 1999,” said Shawn Artis of Morgan County’s GIS Department. “We believe the addition of DEVNET’s wEdge™ solution will be a valuable tool for the public, local officials, and our partnering agencies. It will provide transparency to the assessment process by allowing access to both real-time and historic property information, and users will be able to make more well-informed decisions.”

DEVNET wEdge™ solutions provide web access to Edge™ Property Tax solutions, giving the public, local offices, outside agencies, and partner organizations a gateway to real-time authoritative taxpayer information.

We hope it will assist taxpayers with their property information, give title companies and attorneys easy access to deed information, and provide municipal departments with reliable and accurate data.”

McLean County Illinois adds DEVNET wEdge E-government solution

DEVNET is pleased to announce that McLean County, Illinois, has chosen to implement the DEVNET wEdge e-government solution. McLean County has been a client of DEVNET’s since 2004 and has selected wEdge to make the county’s property tax data available to the public.

“The McLean County website has always been a leader in providing the public with vital information,” commented McLean County Chief County Assessment Officer Bob Kahman. “Since adding wEdge, the compliments have grown. The public and professional users of public information are unanimous in their enjoyment of the ease of use and wealth of information that we are able to provide using wEdge as our public face.”

Rebecca McNeil, McLean County Treasurer and Tax Collector, said, “We have a wide user base, and it was very obvious when the website was not meeting the expectations of our users. Incoming calls drained our resources.  We just went through second installment and received many compliments from the addition of wEdge. We are very satisfied. Thank you for the operational support DEVNET provides.”

“The DEVNET wEdge installation team was extremely professional and provided one of the most seamless transitions with which my office has worked,” noted McLean County Information Technologies Director Craig Nelson. “The DEVNET product meets the needs of our citizens better than our in-house product and requires much less regular attention from my staff. wEdge provides a great value for the dollars invested.”
