OPTiMO Information Technology Announces Launch of the NOTE System

Posted on September 30, 2013

Scranton, PA The Center for Independent Living (CIL), headquartered in Northeastern Pennsylvania, launched their online timesheet entry website in collaboration with OPTiMO Information Technology.

N.O.T.E. (Nepacil Online Timesheet Entry) was successfully launched in the beginning of May and has been received with great enthusiasm by its user base.  N.O.T.E. is fully integrated with the P.A.I.D. system (Payroll Accounting Informational Database) and has the ability both to handle simple user mistakes and to examine entries against fraud detection programs before every timesheet is submitted.

Built from the ground up, N.O.T.E. was designed, developed and implemented with a web-based application using Microsoft .Net and Microsoft SQL Server technologies. N.O.T.E. allows CIL’s consumers, attendants and service facilitators to submit timesheets and provides real-time budget details, timesheet history, forms and email confirmations.

“The system was designed to offer our clients an alternative way of doing timesheets online if they wanted,” said Craig C. Morrison, Director of Illinois for the Center for Independent Living.  “The system not only met our expectations, it exceeded them.  We went from two separate systems to one.  What a great way to streamline processes!”

The N.O.T.E. framework eliminates the front-end faxed timesheet and the manual verification process.    The online timesheet is in its last phase of development and the final version will be released later this fall. Both systems were developed for CIL by OPTiMO IT—a local IT professional service provider founded in 2008 with offices in Bloomsburg, Wilkes-Barre, Virginia and Washington, DC.
