  • -Roger Gallant, Building Inspector, Town of Huron

    BAS IT Services Satisfaction

    BAS upgraded our Network and computers at the Town of Huron and became our on-contract, out sourced IT Help desk in January of 2011. We had already been using a few of the BAS Software products with favorable results and so it seemed to be a good fit to inquire about IT assistance. BAS IT Services found solutions that have worked for the Town and at affordable rates. BAS has an outstanding reputation and really understands local government needs. In our experiences, they’ve always delivered the highest level of customer service. The IT Techs we have worked with at BAS are intelligent, patient, friendly, and professional. We are looking forward to continuing our relationship and partnership into the future together.

    Greater Productivity

    IPS has provided greater productivity for many aspects of the City of Syracuse’s operations, for the benefit of citizens, developers, and City staff. The Complaint Module provides Code Enforcement and Public Works a means to more efficiently manage and track high volumes of varied activities, and the Web Portal allows constituents to enter and track complaints and service requests online. Using Workflow for interdepartmental reviews of permit and zoning plans has made review processes transparent and more efficient, automatically notifying the applicant and other reviewers of relevant results. Access to information tracked by multiple departments has made IPS an invaluable tool for planning and resource allocation.
  • - Jean Klatt, Town Clerk, Town of Gaines

    One of the Best Investments My Town has done in Software

    Within our first year of implementing the BAS Utility Billing Software the Town of Gaines has already been able to recognize that the process and results have been so much more simple and successful than with our previous billing software. The Town most definitely would recommend the BAS Utility Billing program to any interested parties, but all BAS software as well.

    More Effective in Assisting our Citizens

    The Town of Wallkill Building Dept. has had a very positive experience with the IPS program. We are able to do many involved tasks much more efficiently and in much less time than before. The ease of creating reports such as individual inspections, cash, monthly permits, Dodge Report, fire inspections & complaints is incredible! Many in the department also like the capability to scan documents into an individual permit file and also the ability to put in notes to clarify ‘special’ situations and directions. The BAS support staff is always very helpful and is always open to our individual needs.

    Best Money the Town Ever Spent

    Expanding services to the residents is one of my top priorities. I had numerous requests for credit card use so I felt that was a service that we could offer. Processing the charge is seamless and offers our residents another payment option.
  • -Judith Crawford, Receiver of Taxes, Town of Beekman

    100% Satisfied

    I have had the Internet Tax Application for over a year now and it was the best money the Town ever spent. It has cut down tremendously on the number of title company calls and even homeowner calls for April tax information. With this application available to the public at any time with paid information included it literally means your office is open 24/7 for your taxpayers. What more could they ask for! It sure does work for me.
  • -Ryan J. Lashway, Technology Coordinator, Town of Queensbury
