The product is as good as the people that supports it. For 20 years, both have been very reliable.

Pros: POSSE (server/client) is very flexible in the way it adapts to business changes and very reliable in the way it performs on a daily basis. From data entry (permitting/inspections) to report generation, the customizable user interface is simple, easy to learn, and use. The ability for in-house support to configure the user interface, business workflow, report design/output is a boon to productivity. POSSE allows non-GIS & GIS users alike to use the built-in map feature to display points, lines, & polygons in context of the data. The document feature facilitates digital storage/retrieval & management of documents in various formats, minimizing and/or eliminating physical filing. Allows easy changes to user access to various business elements without marshaling. The ability to create & see visual relationships (child/parent, warnings, etc.) is an added practical solution to complex concepts. There's a lot more...

Cons: Flexibility is a dual-edged sword in this case. It's both good and bad - customization can become overly complex if not properly tracked and structured; overtime it can and will create a very complicated configuration and workflow. Fees are another difficult area to configure, track, adjust, and accurately report on. POSSE does not currently have a built-in robust fee module. The integration of GIS data with POSSE is essential but it requires SDE which can act as a SPOF. Unless there's a way to technically manage the To Do List, it can and has become impractical for many users. The same is true for the customer database in terms of continued proliferation of duplicate and/or unwanted data. Also, the new POSSE web does not support the drag/drop (tow truck) and maybe even the parent/child (jobs) relationship visual.

As a software developer, I use Posse to build software to manage licensing and bylaw investigations.

Pros: Powerful configuration tools; can leverage many existing tools and functions. Configuration tool supports multiple developers; stores modifications in change sets. Great tools for promoting change sets throughout the Posse star. Excellent tools for managing a reporting warehouse and accessing using Dashboard tools. Computronix support is excellent; staff are professional and very knowledgeable.

Cons: Database structure is complex; fifth normal form. Upgrades are somewhat difficult due to the Posse 'star' configuration.

Overall: Easy to configure with many built in features. Excellent deployment tools. Software is very stable; we get very few support calls from staff.

It's always been a great experience working with Computronix.

Pros: There are no limitations regarding how the Business Processes can be expressed using Posse. Data stored in other systems can be integrated into Posse and related to other Posse data to provide end users with seamless access, either limited to reading the external data only or expand it to include inserting, updating and deleting.

Cons: it takes a little more time for a new user or even for a new technical staff to understand some terms and codes.

Once I got more involved in the configuration, I could understand and love Posse

Pros: Software is flexible and configurable: Posse configurations support RTB and RTC business processes: allows to add/change configurations without affecting other processes. Also, what I like the most is all the component and the mechanics behind Posse.

Cons: The cons about this software is that took me time to learn / understand all the components and the mechanics.

So far its an excellent product
