Small Town Stories: Joliet, MT

Over the years, we’ve written about many small towns that Black Mountain Software serves. Though this town is quite typical in many ways to other towns we’ve featured, it has one outstanding characteristic: it is the smallest in landmass, reaching only .29 square miles!

Within its tiny footprint and population hovering around 650 people, it’s surprising to find that Joliet has had a few notable historical residents that have called Joliet home. The first is former Montana State Senator Chet Blaylock who ran for Governor of Montana. Second, is Jack Waddell, test pilot for the Boeing 747 maiden flight in 1969. Read more >

Small Town Stories: McRae, Georgia

Recently, we found out some exciting ­news: The cities of McRae and Helena, Georgia (sister cities) are merging January 1, 2015, and have chosen Black Mountain Software as their software partner.

Small Town Stories: Plevna, Montana

We are excited to welcome the town of Plevna, Montana to our Black Mountain Software family. While the Plevna School District, home of the Cougars, has been a software client of ours since 2009, we are thrilled that the town of Plevna itself is also joining our BMS family of customers.

Plevna, with a population of 162 and 90 utility customers, occupies Fallon County, Montana. First established in 1909, Plevna resides on the Milwaukee Road Transcontinental Rail Line along the Pacific Extension. Due to the number of Bulgarian railroad workers in the area at the time, the town is named after a Bulgarian city, Pleven. Read more >

BMS “Engineers” Growth in 2013 with 500th Customer (and growing)

Last week we featured The Lake Panorama Association of Panora, Iowa as our small town story feature on our blog.  Lake Panorama holds a special place in the hearts of the owners and staff of Black Mountain Software, and here’s why: Serving over 1,700 property owners along 30 miles of shoreline, the association needed an efficient way to bill, track and report utility bills for property owners. They selected Black Mountain Software to deliver the technology, making Iowa’s Lake Panorama Association our 500th customer and the 24th state we service!
