LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Lafayette looks to update their software system for the first time in 15 years.
The city took bids under advisement Tuesday to update their Enterprise Resource Planning system.
The software deals with their budgeting, payroll, as well as accounts receivable and payable.
Lafayette IT Director Andy Milam said they also plan to go paperless with utility billing, which could save some money.
"It's not going to pay for the system," Milam said. "But, certainly, that's obviously the direction everything is going is in a paperless environment. We want this system to give us that capability as well."
Milam said they would like to see an applicant tracking feature that would monitor the status of an applicant until they were hired.
