Shelby County, TN Goes Live on MS Govern’s Human Resources Management Suite

St. Louis, MO, January 28, 2010 --( Management Solutions for Government (MS Govern), a division of Harris Computer Systems, is pleased to announce Shelby County, Tennessee has successfully completed the implementation of the Human Resources Management System.

Shelby County, TN produced their first paychecks Friday, January 15, 2010 using MS Govern's Payroll module with a huge success.

Shelby County went live on MS Govern's Financial Management Suite in July, 2009, and the Human Resources Management Suite was Phase II of the project. Lee Wessels, Lead Systems Analyst for Shelby County's Information Technology department, shares her team's experiences working with MS Govern:

"The I.T. staff was pleased that the conversion and implementation went as planned, with very few problems. One distinguishing feature of the MSGovern product is the Conversion Workbook, which provided the I.T. staff with an easy-to-follow guide to conversion and implementation tasks. This workbook included planning documents that helped us assign responsibilities, which helped us tremendously with the coordination and communication of projects details, so necessary for a project this size.

"Now that we are live, I.T. looks forward to learning more about some of the advanced features that the product offers, such as screen designer, enhancing the look of our portal, QuickView reports, using perl scripts to automate tasks, etc. "

“We are very satisfied with the successful implementation project of Shelby County. It was completed on-time and under-budget as a result of the combined efforts of our implementation teams. Shelby County gives the same level of dedication and professionalism as they demand which helped create a reliable and enduring business relationship for the future,” stated Joy K. Richardson, CPA and Regional Sales Manager.
