ELMS launch set for Nov. 14 to allow for more testing, training on the new system
Hundreds of City employees have been busy designing, testing and training for the Enterprise Land Management System (ELMS) and have requested additional time to better prepare for the coming software. The go-live date for the system has been moved to Nov. 14 to allow employees more time to interact with the new system, attend department trainings and update business processes and documentation of their work in the system.
Once live, ELMS will integrate with several other City systems, providing an enterprise view of land-related information and improving collaboration and data-sharing. ELMS brings together multiple technologies allowing permitting, licensing, inspections and plan review all in the same place. It replaces several outdated, unsupported, inefficient systems at the City, including KIVA (the permitting, licensing and inspections system) and Digital Health (the health inspections system).
City leaders adjusted the launch date of ELMs to ensure:
- Employees feel confident using the system and can practice "real work" scenarios before it’s live.
- Employees can attend trainings in their departments and on the ELMS training site.
- Departments can update business processes and standard operating procedures to give employees clear expectations and instruction handouts.
- Customers have the updated information they need to work with the City in the new system.
