Town eyes new software

"Like any other municipality, there is a demand to provide more staffing and equipment for personnel in order to do a more effective job," he said. "This will give us a dynamic idea of when we've done what."

According to Tommasone, the software would also increase town safety. He said that one module in the proposed software would allow police to view up-to-date mapping of a particular property when responding to a call.

Tommasone said the proposed software could also eventually be used to allow residents to pay their property taxes online.

BAS currently has 700 municipal clients including Niskayuna, Clifton Park and Wilton locally.

Tommasone told Vitti he was interested in whether or not the company had any municipal clients who had recently undergone a town-wide revaluation like Rotterdam did in 2007.

Vitti did not immediately have an answer but said he would report back to the board at a future meeting.""
