Vehicle Inventory Tracking System Wins NACo Achievement Award
CIBER designed, built, implemented and integrated the motor vehicle inventory application – called MVITS – to help Tarrant County efficiently manage the 1.6 million vehicle registrations and 500,000 title transfers it processes each year. Tarrant County has more than 1.5 million residents, many of whom live in Fort Worth, the county’s largest city.
Prior to CIBER’s MVITS application, Tarrant County used a mostly manual system to track inventory. The system required more than 200 hours per month of labor and did not provide an up-to-date picture of inventory. Inaccurate inventory subjected the tax office to significant potential financial loss if a dealer experienced economic hardship.
According to CIBER, the MVITS system has reduced the time to maintain dealer inventory by more than 50 percent for annual savings of $25,000 and has identified more than $1 million in changes to dealer bonds to avoid potential losses in case of dealer financial hardship.
“We’re very pleased with CIBER’s technical leadership on this project,” Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector Betsy Price said. “The new system has truly transformed our operations by enhancing customer service, enabling more efficient management of employees’ time, reducing the risk associated with dealer bonds and providing real-time inventory and bond value status.”
The annual NACo Achievement Award is a non-competitive award program that provides national recognition to innovative county government programs that modernize and streamline business processes and increase services to citizens.
