New LGC Backpack Product Offers Centralized Way to Manage Time and Benefits

Columbia, Tenn., December 13, 2016 - Local Government Corporation (LGC) introduces a product offering designed to make it easier and more convenient for customers and their employees to manage time and benefits. 
Known as LGC Backpack, this solution is part of the company's NextGen product line. It takes LGC's NextGen Payroll software to the next level, with the HR functions customers have asked for, and a new responsive design for mobile devices.

To create this functionality, the company has partnered with MyBenefitsChannel (MBC), powered by Sanorbix, for secure, easy-to-use apps. MBC will serve as an employee portal within LGC Backpack that will allow employees to review their W-4 elections, PTO/leave accruals, benefits deductions, paycheck stubs and W-2 forms. Other applications include Time & Attendance, In-service Scheduling & Tracking, Onboarding & Orientation and a Benefits & HR Library.

Bruce Collier, President of LGC,  states, "Our organization and MBC share many of the same customers; schools and local governments. By partnering on LGC Backpack we are able to create an integration that's immediate and easy for customers as they are likely already familiar with MBC's interface. It's a win/win in that our customers will now have the HR features that they want with the accounting features they've come to rely on from us in one place, and supported seamlessly by LGC. It's a tremendous time saver."

The product is anticipated to be available early next year, with additional features and data integration rolling out throughout 2017. To learn more, contact LGC at  

LGC, established in 1977, is a private, nonprofit corporation, chartered to provide computer services to local governments. The company provides a total technical solution, including software, hardware, installation, training and support, web design and network maintenance to meet the management needs and legal requirements of customers.

For over 25 years, Sanorbix has been providing human resources administration and benefits tools to schools, government, hospitals and other organizations. The company's simple, smart apps save time and money while helping customers get the most from their HR programs through MyBenefitsChannel.com.

Exciting news regarding the Siesta Online System

Charlie McRorie with Siesta Software Solutions (Siesta) and Bruce Collier with Local Government Corporation (LGC) are thrilled to announce that LGC has purchased the Siesta Online software from Siesta. This provides many benefits for all involved. Many of the customers of Siesta are already customers of LGC. This will allow LGC to streamline and increase the interaction between the Siesta System and LGC’s Payroll software, as well as other LGC packages.

As an LGC Siesta customer you will enjoy the benefits of large support organization with many resources and the ability to add to the number of customers using the product, which helps to provide security and longevity for any software product. At the same time, Charlie has agreed to work under contract with LGC for at least a year in order to make the transition as smooth and positive as possible. He will continue support and maintain the software as needed, while working with LGC’s developers on tighter interfaces and maintenance. At the same time, Charlie will be working with a transition team at LGC in order to fully define how the Siesta Software is structured and hosted, as well as training LGC’s support staff on the Siesta System.

LGC will also begin immediately to update the product to provide some new functionality through use of some of the latest technology available, while at the same time maintaining the tremendous business knowledge Charlie has accumulated over the years.

Siesta customers will be receiving more information soon about how to access support under this new structure.

LGC appreciates the opportunity to be a part of this great product’s future, and look forward to working with the Siesta customers and Charlie to help implement automation where it can help you best.

Thank you,
Bruce D. Collier, President
Local Government Corporation
