The PSIMS suite is the most affordable product given all the features incorporated into each module, coupled with additional services some of which come without charge. Our licensing model ensures costs are at a minimum. Cushing Systems Inc. will always provide alternate payment schedules to suite the budget requirements of an agency. We also have a relationship with a leasing company who knows our products and already has satisfied the needs of some customers.
Please be aware licensing has no per seat charge and allows a single agency to buy a single system for themselves and others to share. Often our customers have countywide systems where all county agencies participate under the one contract.
The PSIMS suite has many additional features, specifically for integrating other systems. Interfaces vary in price from “no charge” for State/NCIC to approximately $5,000 for a standard industry wide application. Customer specific interfaces are also available.
The purchase of a system is a project with dedicated personnel. We estimate the amount of time for a system setup, both staged and on-site, along with standard practice project management services. In addition user training and go-live support is determined by the size of system, staff availability and number of sessions proposed.
CSi charges an industry low of 15% of software purchased only – not the entire contract so you are not perpetually paying for incidentals.
Cushing Systems Inc. has extensive data conversion experience spanning more than 25 years. Unlike many vendors, we are not satisfied with just a Master Name and Involvement conversion but a complete field for field upgrade from the old database. Where a source field does not exist, it will be created. Every customer migrated to a CSi system has received a full data conversion. No data conversion is 100% accurate, mostly because source data may have physical errors that have resulted in a data loss. Logically, however, Cushing’s goal is to create a complete result.
