POSSE ABC Selected by Kansas

Denver, CO – Computronix is pleased to announce that its market-leading POSSE Alcoholic Beverage Control (“POSSE ABC”) software has been selected by the State of Kansas Alcoholic Beverage Control Division to replace its legacy ABC Liquor Licensing and Regulatory System.

The ABC Division of the Kansas Department of Revenue is the state’s regulatory authority for enforcing Kansas liquor laws through the issuance of state licenses and permits, monitoring product flow, conducting compliance reviews of licensed premises, and enforcing restrictions on underage access to alcohol and a variety of other statutory violations.

“ABC is very excited about its partnership with Computronix because of (the company’s) understanding of the liquor industry, proven software, and successful implementation history,” said Jeannine Koranda, Kansas Department of Revenue public information officer.

Because of its unique, site-specific system needs, the Kansas ABC Division diligently searched for a Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) software solution that provides industry best practices for the liquor licensing and enforcement, and that also supports efficient modifications to the application. After a thorough evaluation process, the Division selected the powerful POSSE ABC solution, which delivers out-of-the-box liquor licensing and enforcement functionality supported by a fully configurable platform providing unlimited modifications to the application without changing source code.

“Computronix is pleased to have been chosen to replace the State’s Alcoholic Beverage Control system and to assist Kansas in utilizing POSSE ABC – now the leading technology for liquor licensing and enforcement agencies in North America,” said Gordon Meeberg, Computronix Vice President of Business Development.

POSSE ABC customers include the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, the British Columbia Liquor Control and Licensing Branch, and the Newfoundland-Labrador Liquor Corporation. Computronix serves the membership of the National Alcohol Beverage Control Association (NABCA), the National Conference of State Liquor Administrators (NCSLA), and the Canadian Association of Liquor Jurisdictions (CALJ).

With offices in Edmonton and metro Denver, Computronix is regarded as one of the leading North American vendors in government regulatory software innovation. Since 1979, Computronix has provided robust government workflow solutions for more than 40 state, provincial, and local governments. To date, POSSE government customers have won over 18 national and international awards for business transformation and improved customer and public service.

Denver, CO – POSSE Version 7, the latest major upgrade to Computronix’s flagship POSSE software suite, is now available. POSSE Version 7 GA (General Availability) begins shipping Aug. 23. A POSSE Version 7 orientation course will be offered Sept. 16-17 in Edmonton in advance of the 2013 Computronix Client Conference for users interested in learning more about the release.

POSSE Version 7 represents over two years of significant research and development investment by Edmonton-based Computronix. The new POSSE release will offer additional product “sizzle,” simplifying usability for internal users. Improvements to system configuration capabilities will significantly reduce implementation project schedules and complexity and continue to demonstrate POSSE as award-winning, leading-edge work management software for the government regulatory sector.

“We are very proud of the thinking, research, innovation, and craftsmanship that have gone into producing Version 7,” said Jim den Otter, Chief Technology Officer for Computronix.

“There simply is no other regulatory software on the market today offering the wealth of features contained in our POSSE Version 7 product line,” said den Otter. “POSSE V7 is in a class of its own.”

For existing POSSE clients still using client-server configurations, Computronix has kicked off an additional project to deliver a tool to convert client-server configurations into the new fully browser-based environment delivered with POSSE Version 7.

“Market demand has shifted to Web-based solutions,” said den Otter. “Increased standardization and the introduction of rich-client browser technologies has finally provided an environment where fully tactile, ‘single-page’ applications for e-government and e-business can be deployed. POSSE Version 7 provides a streamlined framework to take full advantage of these emerging technologies.”

New POSSE customers will see Version 7 features underpinning the core POSSE Work Management software suite of modules as well as the pre-configured POSSE Land Management System (“POSSE LMS”) that offers a compelling blend of out-of-the-box, industry-best-practice business applications combined with unparalleled system configuration flexibility and adaptability.
