Michigan, USA, 17 May 2007: Manatron announced that it has received a contract totaling $3.4 million from Sedgwick County, Kansas for its GRM Property Tax solution.

Tax Information System will be using Manatron technology to collect real estate, personal property, special assessments and other miscellaneous taxes for the county, as well as all of the cities, townships, school districts and other taxing jurisdictions within Sedgwick County.

This was the second contract for Manatron’s Web-GIS based property tax billing and collection solution in the State of Kansas following the first contract with the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City.

“We are excited about the opportunity to work on two large new accounts in the same state,” said Bill McKinzie, Manatron’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “This will allow us to leverage our costs more effectively and will accelerate the completion of these projects as we expect to utilize many of the same people to work on both of these implementations. We continue to gain further economies of scale with our GRM solution across the country.”
