FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The KID was organized 94 years ago under Washington State law. It took 40 years to get from "organized" to "funded" and "built." For the last 54 years the KID has provided water to agricultural and residential customers within parts of Kennewick, Richland, West Richland and Benton County. The KID provides irrigation water to thousands of landowners for 20,201 acres.
Selecting the right system was critical
KID’s current system was outdated, inflexible and unable to meet the current and future requirements of the District. The TruePoint system will allow the District to streamline operations and increase efficiencies district-wide. TruePoint will also provide integration with the District’s financial and GIS systems. The District set out to find a billing system that was strong in overall water management, not just a traditional, rigid utility billing system. After a thorough evaluation process and interviewing existing clients, TruePoint Solutions was selected as the vendor of choice.
KID will implement TruePoint Solutions’ TrueBill, TrueCIP & TrueAIM products.
TruePoint will implement TrueBill which will handle all aspects of utility billing, customer account management, service orders, accounts receivable, collections management, central cash management, and ad-hoc report generation. TruePoint will provide integration with the existing KID general ledger.
TrueAIM will enable KID field based staff to more effectively take water orders, monitor consumption and effectively exchange data from the field back to the office for timely, more accurate billing of their agricultural irrigation customers.
TrueCIP (Customer Information Portal) is an online application that will give KID’s customers immediate access to current account status, place water orders, service orders, make payments (PCI Compliant) and view billing/payment history detail.
Additional add-on module:
TrueGIS is a web-based application which allows you to view, search and print map or GIS information.
