Chicago, IL – Catalyst Consulting Group, Inc. (Catalyst) is happy to announce it was recently featured in Toggle Magazine for the development work it completed with the Department of Finance (DoF) on the Online Full Payment Certificate application.

For the past six years, Catalyst has worked closely with DoF to redevelop and support the Online Full Payment Certificate (OFPC) application. Back in 2012, DoF and the Department of Innovation and Technology (DoIT) decided the city’s FPC application needed a reboot. Catalyst was contracted to assess the legacy application and work with DoF to modernize it so that users could complete the FPC application online from end-to-end. In June of 2015, the new application was launched.

Once launched, the OFPC application increased the amount of applications completed online from 15% to 87%. Most importantly, the average number of days to process an application reduced from 10 days to one. Catalyst continues to support DoF with the OFPC application as well as other initiatives within Utility Billing and Customer Service. Catalyst would like to extend a big thank you to Toggle Magazine for capturing this initiative and sharing it with its many readers.
