MUNIS Upgrade By: Josh Crawford, Business System Analyst

The upgrade to our MUNIS system has been installed on our TEST environment. Over the next few months, multiple users will have the opportunity to test out the new features. While this process will introduce some changes, overall the County will be able to take advantage of many benefits: • Improved features, including customized dash- boards and reporting features

• Human Resources Module additions

...and much more!

• Updated support through Tyler Client Support

Workflow and role improvements

The testing process is designed to ensure the daily processes we depend on are functioning correctly. This testing process takes around three (3) months. Once items are verified, the upgrade to the LIVE and TRAIN environments can be done. Keep an eye out for more information on training and access to TEST coming soon. For more information on the MUNIS system upgrade, contact Josh Crawford, Business System Analyst, at
