Paladin Data Systems Announces the City of Chehalis, Washington, as Newest SMARTGov Customer

POULSBO, Wash., Jan. 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Paladin Data Systems Corporation is pleased to announce that City of Chehalis, Washington, is its newest customer for SMARTGov, Paladin's community development software solution that manages the full lifecycle of permits, inspections, licenses, and code enforcement activities for jurisdictions.

Paladin will implement its cloud-based technology at Chehalis to track all aspects of zoning and codes including permit issuance, inspections, and code enforcement, and all recurring licenses. The city will be transitioning from Black Bear's PTWin legacy software to the cloud-based features of SMARTGov.

"The City of Chehalis is excited to have the opportunity to update our software program for permit tracking. The City was beginning to worry about the software program we had been using since the provider went out of business years ago. Now, we look forward to a streamlined program that comes with training and technical support, what a difference!" said Dennis Osborn, City of Chehalis Building and Planning Director

As noted above, Chehalis will deploy SMARTGov's online Public Portal, which is a significant addition to Chehalis's ability to serve the public, acting as a full-featured extension of the jurisdiction's front counter services. Using the portal, the public can research local building trends, apply for a permit, view maps, pay fees, submit digital architectural drawings, request inspections, and even review public notice postings in a 24/7, self-help environment.

"The City of Chehalis is a great new customer for SMARTGov. We will migrate their legacy data and provide additional services to configure and train City staff for the automation features of SMARTGov. This is a win win for both the City and Paladin," said Jon Byrd, Paladin's SMARTGov Business Development Executive.

Located in Lewis County, Washington the City of Chehalis straddles Interstate 5 at a point almost exactly halfway between Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon. The city has a total area of 5.55 square miles and a population of 7,300.
