Cloud-based solution simplifies permitting, licensing and code enforcement processes for governments and municipalities, increasing time to value for local businesses
CARY, N.C. (August 7, 2018) ---- Dude Solutions, the leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider of operations management solutions, today adds SmartGov™ to the company’s new suite of community development software. SmartGov eliminates delayed or missed development opportunities by tracking and managing all tasks associated with permit processing, business licensing, code enforcement and recurring inspections in an automated, web-based application.
Equipped with paperless processes, SmartGov allows government agencies to capitalize on revenue opportunities tied to new business projects within their communities much sooner than expected. Seamless integration with a public portal offers improved transparency and engagement while allowing citizens to get online instead of standing in line.
The City of Maricopa, Arizona streamlined their permitting process with SmartGov, which incentivized businesses looking to expand or develop in their community. “Our goal is to be the most transparent city in the world,” said Robert Mathias, Development Manager for the City of Maricopa. “SmartGov is a huge step toward that goal.”
In addition to supporting revenue-generating functions and timely responses to development opportunities, SmartGov dramatically reduces time, cost and error, as well as dependence on paper-based and manual processes. SmartGov also offers comprehensive APIs that integrate with both GIS systems and operations and asset management platforms, allowing local governments to purchase a suite of SaaS solutions from a single technology vendor.
“The introduction of SmartGov was made possible by our acquisition of Paladin Data Systems. Paladin has pioneered community development and regulation solutions and we’re proud to build on that foundation," said Ed Roshitsh, Chief Executive Officer of Dude Solutions. “Combined with our suite of cloud-based solutions, the introduction of SmartGov allows us to not only help government agencies drive meaningful business outcomes, but serve as a trusted partner for operations management, asset management and community development initiatives alike.”
Dude Solutions has long been known as the leading provider of maintenance solutions, serving thousands of local governments and municipalities nationwide. SmartGov joins the company’s suite of SaaS solutions for government which includes its flagship operations management platform, Asset Essentials™. This cloud-based solution automates routine and advanced asset and operations management for Facilities, Public Works, Public Utilities, Parks and Recreation, Treatment Plants, and more.
