VM Online CAMA, API integration to every Council ERP
How we helped
VM Online has been the chosen valuation software platform for the Valuer General of Victoria since 2008. Recent changes in State Legislation led to the Valuer General becoming the central valuation authority, assuming this responsibility from Local Government. The VM Online team closely supported the VGV during this period of rapid change through multiple new Council site implementations, along with the consolidation of existing sites into the new centralised valuation framework. As at July 2019 VGV now uses VM Online to manage 2.6m+ annual assessments for 64 Councils ranging in size from 5,000 through to 125,000 assessments.
IDS continues to work closely with the Valuer General’s office to support and advise on valuation technology capabilities delivered through VM Online to capture the benefits of automated workflow, auditing, reporting and standardisation, all of which have become possible under the new centralised Valuation Authority model.
VM Online CAMA, API integration to ERP
How we helped
Glen Eira City Council implemented the VM Online solution in 2018, moving off the CAMA module that came bundled with their Local Government ERP solution. The existing solution was slow to adapt to legislative updates and best practice enhancements, requiring disruptive change management to the wider system in order to implement an upgrade. VM Online was able to offer the benefits of seamless, ongoing compliance and best practice through its Software as a Service (SaaS) method of delivery. During the implementation phase, the VM Online team assisted Glen Eira to capture a wider array of data sources into the valuation system, particularly from their GIS.
The Council now benefits from vastly improved efficiencies in data querying, exporting and report production. Functions that used to take several hours at a time to execute on the legacy system now run in seconds or minutes on VM Online.
