For Immediate Release
City of Ocala, Florida, selects GovSense software solution to manage paperless initiative within Growth Management Department.
ATLANTA – July 19, 2018 – GovSense, a leading cloud-based software solution provider for state and local government, announced that the City of Ocala, Florida’s Growth Management Department has chosen the GovSense unified software solution to replace its current system.
The City of Ocala implemented a paperless ordinance that requires all constituents to submit plans and requests of all types electronically, including commercial and residential versions, and for the comprehensive start-to-finish process to be 100% digital. This mandate necessitated the city’s need for an easy-to-use technology solution to digitally manage the entire submission, review, exception, approval and payment workflow, while also providing a user-friendly interface for constituents.
Gary McTall, GovSense co-founder, explained the importance of having a 360-degree view of the jurisdiction’s Growth Management Department. “GovSense will empower City of Ocala employees and the citizens they serve with an end-to-end growth management solution. By providing the city with a single solution to manage revitalization services, economic development, financial management, business licensing, planning, permitting, inspections, and code enforcement, community leaders will gain accurate real-time visibility across all departments and economically navigate current and future improvements for constituents,” he stated.
In addition, Ocala’s Growth Management Department encourages sustainable growth while overseeing community development. Thanks to GovSense’s partnership with Esri Geographic Information Systems (GIS) the city will now be able to make use of powerful mapping and analytics software to find the best way to deliver new infrastructure, share ideas with citizens and business owners and bring prosperity to the community.
“GovSense is one of the most unique, powerful and adaptable permitting softwares on the market,” said Tye Chighizola, Growth Management Director for the City of Ocala. “GovSense will take Ocala to the next level and we’re looking forward to making everyday tasks easier for both city employees and constituents.”
The City of Ocala recently started the GovSense software implementation process, for which they will receive ongoing support and training from GovSense experts.
GovSense built the first unified, true-cloud solution designed specifically for local government. GovSense empowers jurisdictions with flexible, easy-to-use software that enables collaboration in finance and accounting, budgeting, utility billing, fund and project management, economic development, asset management, GIS, inspections and enforcement, planning, and permitting and licensing. In addition, the company’s implementation approach is driven by business processes, not technology. GovSense utilizes the agile implementation methodology that results in rapid time to value for all jurisdictions, regardless of what challenges specific departments face. The company delivers user-friendly software solutions tailored to jurisdictions’ requirements in weeks, not months or years.
