Forte’s payment processing unites with DEVNET for a total e-government solution


DEVNET Incorprated is pleased to announce their partnership with Forte Payment Systems to further service counties that seek a total e-government payments solution.

Forte has been optimizing government payments for over 15 years, focusing on crafting intelligent options for processing while, at the same time, cultivating and fostering lasting relationships. Online payments are an integral piece of any payments solution, and DEVNET brings 17 years of experience developing and supplying proven integrated e-government software and hardware solutions to the table. Both provide flexible and robust applications with a thoughtful, intimate understanding of county clients.

The two offer a complete suite of products for government that can be custom packaged to address specific county needs. One particularly successful combination is the use of DEVNET’s wEdge application in conjunction with Forte’s trusted payment processing services.

The DEVNET wEdge is a comprehensive e-government solution that allows users to search and view all of their properties and associated taxes within a jurisdiction. With an intuitive and intelligent interface, users can browse properties and their details, add amounts owed to a shopping cart and pay via Forte’s integrated payment system.

The two solutions meld together perfectly, creating a seamless and harmonious platform. Counties can rely upon Forte’s highly secure payment environment and reduce their PCI scope, all while providing their users a total search and shop solution with wEdge.

This particular offering from Forte and DEVNET is currently utilized by several Missouri counties, including Madison, Pettis, Crawford, Jefferson, New Madrid and Bollinger. Two Illinois counties also use the application: Madison and Kankakee. The combination of Forte and wEdge is expertly sculpted for counties that need a modern, powerful property tax and appraisal search, but who are also looking for a secure, simplified payment solution.
