Paladin Data Systems Corporation announced Ellensburg, WA today as its newest customer for SMARTGov, Paladin’s community development software that manages the full lifecycle of any permit, inspection, license, or code enforcement action for jurisdictions.
Paladin will implement its cloud-based technology at Ellensburg to track all aspects of zoning and codes including permit issuance, inspections, and code enforcement. The city will be transitioning from Excel spreadsheets to the cloud-based features of SMARTGov, including remote access for field inspectors and an interactive public portal for self-help, citizen service.
“This is a major leap forward for the City of Ellensburg, WA to begin automating their manual permit and inspection processes in SMARTGov. The City is well positioned for this as they have a forward thinking IT group and proactive Community Development department. They are dedicated to responsive service levels which will be more sustainable on SMARTGov as Paladin will host the solution via the cloud, eliminating virtually all of the maintenance requirements for the City IT staff,” said Jon Byrd, a Paladin Sales Executive.
In addition to permit tracking and monthly reporting, SMARTGov will allow Ellensburg to set reminders for annual review dates for special permits, track violations and link permits issued to GIS maps.
“It is expected that SMARTGov will help us streamline our services by standardizing our processes, enabling faster, more efficient and more accurate tracking of permits through those processes, and making many of the steps involved with permits, inspections, and code enforcement available online,” said Michael R. Smith, Community Development Director for the City of Ellensburg.
