Early last month, the City of San Luis Obispo and the Teller cashiering team from Can/Am Technologies conducted onsite analysis meetings for a new point-of-sale system implementation. Representatives of the Finance department, Sierra-Cedar, and Can/Am worked on identifying the best approach to cashiering at the city.
The Teller implementation is part of the larger Motion Project that San Luis Obispo is working on with Sierra-Cedar, a successful and experienced implementer of the Oracle Cloud Application Suite. This project is driving to “improve productivity, deliver higher quality services, and support better decision making in the areas of finance, procurement, project management, personnel administration, talent management, benefits, payroll, financial reporting, and budgeting” for San Luis Obispo (see the Sierra-Cedar press release here).
The cashiering implementation will take advantage of the fully cloud-hosted, web-based Teller cash receipting system. The cloud-based approach allows the Can/Am team to easily support San Luis Obispo with upgrades and other services, thus freeing city IT to focus elsewhere. Credit card processing will continue to be done through Chase. Other key features implemented with Teller include using Teller for financial posting between departments, and a real-time integration with Oracle AR as payments are received for Billing.
The Teller team is excited to continue working with San Luis Obispo and Sierra-Cedar towards a go-live date in October, in conjunction with the Financials section of the Motion project. “We look forward to productive relationships with both the City and Sierra-Cedar well into the future,” says Joshua Langemann, President of Can/Am Technologies.
This is Can/Am’s first implementation project with Sierra-Cedar, which is an exciting milestone and should provide a foundation for future work together. The Teller team is excited to work with San Luis Obispo, an awesome city with great people who will benefit from the accountability, communication, and integration that Teller has to offer.
