St. Cloud, Florida Live on CIS Infinity

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 30 January 2014 Release date- 29012014 - St. Cloud, FL and Toronto, ON - City of St. Cloud, Florida (St. Cloud) has completed a successful implementation of its new customer information and billing solution, CIS Infinity by Advanced Utility Systems, a division of N. Harris Computer Corporation (Advanced).

St. Cloud went 'live' with CIS Infinity at the end of last November, delivering service to 20,000 water, sewer, reclaimed water, solid waste and stormwater customers.

'Advanced staff really supported us before and during Go-Live to meet our firm deadline,' says Veronica Miller, Public Services Administrator. 'They also had an excellent group of people complete our conversion that was required to be completed in an expedited time frame.' Peter Fanous, Executive Vice President for Advanced notes: 'We are very deliberate when it comes to assigning staff to projects. We put the right number of team members together who have the right combination of expertise and experience for the implementation. This goes a long way in protecting our clients' timelines and reinforces the fact that Advanced is a dedicated partner to its clients.' One of the main features of CIS Infinity that St. Cloud will take advantage of is its advanced reporting capabilities. St. Cloud's legacy system was limited and cumbersome for reporting. Now, any user can build unique reports quickly to identify and resolve areas of concern such as revenue loss.

St. Cloud also implemented Infinity.Link the Advanced online bill payment and self-service solution as well as Infinity.CreditCheck the integration of CIS Infinity with ONLINE Information Services, Inc.'s premier bad-debt elimination tool, the ONLINE Utility Exchange.

City of St. Cloud was incorporated on January 3, 1911, and St. Cloud's boundaries have expanded dramatically since then. The size of the city is now controlled by voluntary annexation based on the supply of sewer and water services to the expanding urban area. Growth has been demand-based, and City services have been extended to meet the needs of new residents as well as providing economies of scale for the operation of City utilities and services.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
