StateWays | | July/August 2016 19 years ago when we learned the systems would no longer be supported, we started looking for systems that would do all we needed." PLCB+ also provides online submission for applications on tavern gaming license, extending an establishment's size, change of offi cer and special permits for wine auctions and non-profi t special occasions. "From a business perspective, we wanted a system not only effi cient and user-friendly, but also wanted from a manage- ment perspective to reduce resources," Melnick says. The state chose the Computronix Posse work management software for the site. The challenge was pulling data from a number of disparate systems so they could all be made part of the new system, says Melnick, making cleaning and validating existing data crucial to the PLCB+ success. Now all aspects have entered the 21st cen- tury: the fi rst phase of PLCB+ implementation last year transi- tioned the agency's brand registration process onto the platform for malt and brewed beverages. The entire management staff of the PLCB contributed to its earning "Overall Winner" in this year's awards. CONECUH RIDGE DISTILLERY, LLC DALLAS, TX 42.5%, 46%, 55%, 58.5% ALC./VOL.
