The Tempest Electronic Home Owner Grants (eHOG) application is designed to enable municipalities in British Columbia to allow their customers to claim home owner grants via the web.

The eHOG application is an add-on to the eCommerce application that allows homeowners within your municipality to fill out the required information in order to claim their home owner grant online. This module consists of three parts: the online HOG application, the balancing and importing of the application to Cash Payments and the processing of activities relating to some of the applications. The process has been approved by the Office of Home Owner Grant Administration and has been developed in conjunction with BC Tax Collectors.

The eHOG application pages can be linked to any page in your corporate website and they can also be listed in your online payments menu.

The District of Saanich has been using the suite of Tempest applications since 2000.  As a Tempest user, the Saanich Tempest User Group Coordinator and one of the members of the Tempest User Group Executive Committee, I can say that this product has been clearly designed for use by local governments.  It is both easy to learn and easy to use.  The product is excellent as is the emphasis by Tempest on providing good customer service.  The annual User Conference is great!
