Garfield County licensed Logos.NET Financial Management and Human Resources and
Payroll Management, along with several additional applications that provide
county officials with the ability to easily and efficiently conduct their daily
business using the familiar Microsoft desktop environment.
County officials, representing each department, spent nine months researching
the functionality required in a new system and vendor. After an extensive
request for proposal, various software demonstrations and customer reference
checks, the County chose New World.
"New World's .Net technology was one of the key reasons we chose the Company,"
said Assistant County Manager Jesse Smith, Garfield County, Colo. "This is a
major purchase for any County, and we do not want to go through this again in
the next few years due to out of date technology. With New World's Logos.NET
solution, we feel confident that we will have this software for many years."
For the first time, the County will have a fully integrated system to allow
seamless communication between departments.
"New World's integrated Logos.NET will reduce redundant data entry and manual
labor, as well as increase data accuracy," said Smith. "Currently, accounts
payables are entered into the County's system and then re-entered into the
State's human services system under a different chart of accounts, but New
World's software will eliminate this step so we will only have to enter
payables once. Using Logos.NET, our data will be automatically entered into
the County's chart of accounts.
"This one step process will also affect our payroll process, which is currently
handled through ADP and then the data is entered into the County's system via
extensive journal entries," said Smith. "We will save a lot of time."
To ensure integration and to provide superior customer support, New World
develops its entire suite in-house. As a Microsoft Certified Partner, New
World has committed the development resources required to build and deploy
robust solutions designed for all sizes of government agencies. Logos.NET was
developed using proven Microsoft .Net technology, industry standard Windows
2000 Server and SQL Server 2000 database. From customizable screens to full
suite integration, it will provide government officials fast and easy access to
"We are energized about implementing New World's Logos.NET," said Smith. "From
streamlining processes to automating tasks, this browser-based solution is
going enhance internal productivity and services to our constituents."

a workforce of 400. New World and the County will begin implementation
