GeoMedia Smart Client Kommunal Helps Power Solution for Assessing and Collecting Municipal Fees

Certificate of Excellence Awarded to Hexagon Geospatial Partner Kommunal-Consult Becker AG for their solution

28 2月 2017

Norcross, Georgia – Hexagon Geospatial is pleased to announce that one of its partners in Germany, Kommunal-Consult Becker AG, has been awarded the “Certificate of Excellence” for implementing the first holistic GIS-based solution for the collection of municipal dues and fees as well as for the management and valuation of accounting assets. GeoMedia Smart Client Kommunal, a customized version of the off-the-shelf product GeoMedia Smart Client, was used in their solution.

In 2015, new federal rulings in Germany established that recurring road improvement assessments may be levied if it can be positively shown that the individual assessees received unique benefits from those road improvements. This provides an important revenue stream, but also places the burden of assessment and collection on the municipalities.

The award-winning solution of Kommunal-Consult Becker AG, introduced an innovative way to standardize the process. This web-based solution includes GeoMedia Smart Client Kommunal and lets municipalities determine the actual benefits of specific road improvements that are realized by its individual users.

Each “GeoMedia Smart Client Kommunal - Wiederkehrende Strassenbeiträge” application connects to the official German cadastre data model and follows a set design and logical rules, ensuring that the workflow is accurate, consistent and repeatable. Directly from the software, the assessors can create the accounting areas, calculate the portion used by the authority, populate the spatial database, calculate the number of floors per building, calculate the assessment, and process the bulk letter communication out of the software.

“GeoMedia Smart Client Kommunal is already trusted by almost 250 municipalities in Germany, including the City of Buseck,” said Marcus Holler, Product Line Director of GeoMedia Smart Client for Hexagon Geospatial. “We are proud that they chose to include GeoMedia Smart Client Kommunal to help combine the power of GIS with the flexibility of web technology. It is the only web-based, commercial GIS solution portfolio in the German market that covers all aspects of spatial tasks for local authorities. The current release “GeoMedia Smart Client Kommunal 2016” is available including many additional applications for the German municipalities.

With GeoMedia Smart Client Kommunal, Hexagon Geospatial offers a unique product portfolio for German municipalities. Hexagon Geospatial provides the basis and the framework for members of the Hexagon Geospatial Developer Network to implement designated applications to manage various tasks of a municipality.

 “As a Hexagon Geospatial Channel Partner, we can rely on the software of a global player in the GIS market,” said Thomas Becker, founder of Kommunal-Consult Becker AG. “The stable, modern and open system architecture and products of Hexagon Geospatial, combined with our local expertise, is key for our customers to get turn-key solutions for the collection of municipal dues and fees as well as for the accounting asset valuation.”

The Hexagon Geospatial Channel Partner Kommunal-Consult Becker has been in the market for more than 15 years and offers services and turn-key solutions for the double-entry accounting system (Doppik). This involves the systematic and complete recording of all business transactions of a local authority in order to obtain a clear view of municipal assets and liabilities at any time.
