Government Utilities Technology Service, Inc (GUTS) (previously known as Goodnight Consulting) has been meeting the technical and business needs of it's clients for nearly 22 years. The founder, Eric Goodnight, built the organization by developing a comprehensive team of business professionals with extensive backgrounds and business knowledge in the areas of local government, Information Technology (IT), assessment, tax and billing. We have embraced the use of software technology as a method to improve the quality, speed, and economic benefits derived by our customers’ projects. We are dedicated to providing solutions that will enable our customers to direct their efforts toward their core business.
GUTS has spent a significant amount of time meeting with Assessors, Property Valuation Administrators (PVAs), Auditors, Treasurers, State Officials, Legislators, and other Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in Indiana and Kentucky to document their workflow and processes as they pertain to the management of property assessment, property tax and billing. These efforts produced more than 600 pages of process flow charts and provided the basis for developing and continually enhancing PVDNET®, a truly integrated, web-based product utilizing ASP.Net and Microsoft SQL Server state-of-the-art architecture. The product can be installed locally or hosted via the web by GUTS for all of it's clients. GUTS design methodology is very simple – the entire system was designed by end users for end users.
The PVDNET® suite of products, eAssessor, eAuditor, eTreasurer, and eOffice is specifically designed for Assessors, Auditors, and Treasurers. PVDNET® has incorporated PVA, Assessor, Auditor, and Treasurer Functions into one truly integrated property tax system. Business rules have been incorporated that will enable elected officials to comply with State Statutes in all facets of their property-tax-related duties. This integrated system eliminates the possibility of redundant data resulting from entering data into multiple databases. PVDNET® enables the PVA, Assessor, Auditor, and Treasurer to share the same data and to view the data not traditionally available to other offices. Roles have been established in the security structure to allow users either read-only access, partial modification of some records, or full edit capabilities.
