Cork County Council goes live with Online Dog Licensing System from iSOFT Business Solutions
Capita IB Solutions, market leader in providing world-class financial accounting software, procurement and bespoke solutions to service-centric organisations, today announced that Cork County Council has gone live with its Online Dog Licensing System.
As the local authority for County Cork, the largest County in the Republic of Ireland, Cork County Council has implemented the Online Dog Licensing System to improve the current system and save the Council time and money by streamlining the licensing process.
Recent studies conducted by the Department of the Environment estimated that County Council dog wardens impounded more than 16,000 dogs every year, of which approximately 8,000 were re-housed or reclaimed, and figures produced by the IFA (Irish Farmers' Association) show that out of a total national dog population of 800,000, just 200,000 are licensed. It has generally been accepted that the current dog control legislation in Ireland needs to be updated to make use of systems like Capita IB Solutions', Online Dog Licensing System.
The system will allow owners to apply for, pay for and receive their dog licence online within minutes, saving time and money and information is transferred automatically back to the central system doing away with the need to rekey the information.
Derek Kehoe, Director of Sales Ireland at Capita IB Solutions, said: "Cork County Council will save thousands of Euros annually by allowing dog owners to manage their dog licence applications online and also provide a better service to the end-user."
The system is fully integrated into the Council's existing Integra financial management system, which is in line with e-Government initiatives, such as providing better services to the customer while improving efficiency.
