VADAR Systems Delivers For The Town of Randolph, Massachusetts


Maynard, MA, USA - October 20, 2007 - VADAR Systems, a Massachusetts based Financial Software provider supporting 60+ MA municipalities, is pleased to announce the successful implementation of its Financial System for the Town of Randolph, Massachusetts. In addition, VADAR’s partnership with DeVA Systems provided the backbone infrastructure which completely replaced Randolph’s out-of-date systems.

“We chose VADAR and DeVA because they are leaders in deploying financial management and network infrastructure solutions for Massachusetts towns. Their solution is helping us work towards our goal of being recognized as a forward-thinking community in Massachusetts when it comes to financial management.” says Richard Brown, Principal Assessor, Town of Randolph.

Key Benefits of the DeVA Systems/VADAR Systems Solution:

• The wide range of applications and services provided “a-la-carte” by the two companies allowed Randolph to configure the ideal solution for their specific needs.
• The town’s computer network is now more reliable.
• Town employees function more efficiently – with a modern computer infrastructure and an up-to-date financial software system based on the Uniform Massachusetts Accounting System (UMAS) standards.
• All town employees can easily access data, shared files and printers at Town Hall from remote town offices.
• The town now provides improved customer service as citizens and businesses receive information faster when requested.
• Reporting capabilities allow the town to institute more detailed spending plans and budget projections as well as monitor delinquent accounts more closely.

The Town of Randolph had reached the point where it needed to upgrade its financial software systems – for financial as well as technological reasons. “We were operating under statutory basis of accounting, which is the bare minimum legally required by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts,” Brown said. “But the Massachusetts Department of Revenue had been encouraging us to adopt the Uniform Massachusetts Accounting System (UMAS). We also realized we could function more efficiently with a new system that would help us with reporting, budget planning and collections.”

“We primarily selected VADAR because they have a solid track record with many successful deployments in Massachusetts,” Brown said. “VADAR is familiar with the Massachusetts reporting requirements, so they had previously solved many issues we might encounter.”

For the technology infrastructure, the servers and the networked PCs that would allow end-users to easily access the VADAR financial software, the town relied heavily on input from VADAR. “As with the financial software system, we also considered several partners for deploying the technology infrastructure,” Brown said. “VADAR had worked often with DeVA Systems Group, so we knew the two companies together offered a winning combination.”

DeVA Systems Group provides information access, security and IT support services that enable clients to work more effectively and increase focus on their core business. This includes helping end-users access applications and managing entire IT environments.

The deployment of the VADAR Systems financial software and DeVA Systems technology infrastructure proceeded smoothly. Converting the data from the town’s old COBOL system to VADAR’s financial software system was challenging, but VADAR was able to deliver the resources necessary to get the job done.

The Town of Randolph computer network is now a modern, stable environment with an up-to-date financial software system based on the UMAS standards. The network is also available to departments that are not located right in Town Hall. They can access the VADAR system and other applications just as though they were in the main office.

As demonstrated with the Town of Randolph, VADAR and DeVA each provide the municipal marketplace with an outstanding array of applications and services. Combining both companies together on a project – whether large or small – gives every municipality the opportunity to affordably achieve its individual goals.

Jack FitzGibbons, longtime Randolph Treasurer/Collector, added, “After we finished comparing balances for real estate, personal property and tax title accounts, all of them, including the amounts due and credit balances, agreed to the penny. We realize and appreciate the time and effort required to do this. You are to be congratulated for a superb job well done.”
