Archon Information Systems Recognized on Inc. 500|5000 List of America’s Fastest Growing Companies

New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) September 11, 2012

Archon Information Systems L.L.C., a leading provider of delinquent property auction and tax collection software, headquartered in New Orleans, was recently recognized for its substantial growth by being named to Inc. Magazine’s 500|5000 list of “America’s Fastest Growing Companies.” Because of a three-year growth rate of 525 percent, they ranked 681st out of 5,000 nationally, and were the fourth fastest growing company in Louisiana.

“We have been fortunate to find incredible team members dedicated to providing our customers with unparalleled service. They have been the key to our success,” said Archon Information System’s co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, William Sossamon.

Archon was founded with a strong talent base, and they quickly garnered prestigious recognition soon after opening their doors. They now join growing and thriving businesses like Yelp, GiftCards.com, and Chobani Yogurt on the Inc. Magazine list.

Founded in January 2008, Archon grew from a core staff of three native New Orleanians into the booming operation that it is today. Sossamon, Chief Executive Officer Bryan Barrios, and Chief Operations Officer Beau Button grew the company by consistently delivering innovative, comprehensive treasury management and tax collection software solutions to governmental agencies. Their success in these endeavors has led to an increasingly positive reputation, especially in Louisiana.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s office recently announced some impressive results to their partnership with Archon. According to local officials, the parish collected 99.96 percent of the property tax revenue that was owed to them, an astonishingly high number.

The Sheriff’s office worked with CivicSource, Archon’s tax platform, to bring its tax sale auctions online. By digitizing the pre-sale processing, and reaching out to a global online marketplace, the parish was able to increase their collection revenues exponentially.

In the past few years, Archon has recorded a number of success stories like this and sustained their growth by creating high quality products like CivicSource, and attracting talented people who were looking for New Orleans programming jobs that demanded creativity, diverse knowledge, and a passion for the work at hand.

Due to the company’s commitment to maintaining the highest ethical standards, and offering quality products, services, and counsel on tight deadlines, more and more clients will seek their expertise in the coming years.

East Baton Rouge Sheriff Partners with CivicSource to Bring Tax Collection into 21st Century

NEW ORLEANS – July 19, 2012CivicSource, the property auctions marketplace, announced today that it collected 99.96% of the property tax revenue due to East Baton Rouge parish.  The Sheriff’s office worked with CivicSource to utilize its pre-sale collection processes and to bring the tax sale online to further enhance the collection efficiency of parish revenue.  As a result of CivicSource digitizing pre-sale processing and its ability to reach a global network of investors via CivicSource’s online marketplace, this year’s tax sale adjudicated only 350 properties, down from 2,200 last year.

A challenge for political subdivisions is to allocate the resources necessary to weed through reams of taxpayer data – missing names, lacking phone numbers and incorrect addresses – for thousands of properties and then posit actual notice with all tax sale parties apprising them of the pending sale.  For this sale, CivicSource conducted more than 76,000 outreach efforts, including public records research, certified mailings, telephone campaigns and journal advertisements in order to process 18,000 tax accounts to prepare them for sale. By applying CivicSource’s comprehensive pre-sale solutions, East Baton Rouge parish was able to collect on 16,212 property tax accounts prior to sale, leaving only 1,476 for auction, down from 4,845 last year.

“Sheriff Gautreaux’s annual property tax collection percentage was already among the highest in Louisiana,” said Bryan Barrios, CEO of CivicSource. “CivicSource introduces further efficiencies by digitizing the entire process and extending the reach of the sale to a global network of investors.”

By bringing the tax sale online, East Baton Rouge gained exposure to a broad new group of potential investors: nearly 6,000 unique visitors – from nearly every state in the U.S. and more than 26 countries across the globe – reviewed the tax sale conducted online at www.civicsource.com from June 12th – 14th.

CivicSource managed and funded all aspects of the East Baton Rouge sale costing almost $650,000.  External funding of the sale process can serve as an effective way to save money, increase revenue and keep delinquent property taxpayers current on their liabilities, as many government agencies struggle to find revenue to make budgets and keep vital programs functioning.
