Paladin Data Systems announces City of Hialeah Garden, Florida as newest SMARTGov customer

POULSBO, Wash., Nov. 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Paladin Data Systems announced today that the City of Hialeah Gardens, Florida is its newest SMARTGov customer. SMARTGov, Paladin's community development software solution, manages the full lifecycle of permits, inspections, licenses, and code enforcement activities for jurisdictions.

Paladin will implement its cloud-based technology at Hialeah Gardens to track all aspects of zoning and codes, including permit issuance, inspections, code enforcement, and all recurring licenses.

"The City of Hialeah Gardens is looking forward to working with Paladin Data System to streamline our permitting process through the implementation of SMARTGov software," said Mirtha Gonzales, the city's chief zoning official. "We were very impressed by the system's ease of use, and we look forward to an improved permitting process that comes with outstanding training and technical support. We think our citizens and business owners will embrace SMARTGov as well."

Hialeah Gardens officials decided upon SMARTGov in part after a 30-day free trial of the SMARTGov product. The move to SMARTGov is an upgrade from the city's current community development software, CRW Systems, Inc.. In June, CRW was acquired by SunGuard, one of the world's leading financial software companies.

"Naturally, we're pleased that Hialeah Gardens, Fla., has selected SMARTGov to meet its permitting needs," said Jeff Pavey, Paladin business development executive. "SMARTGov's cloud delivery model will minimize IT requirements, while supporting robust features designed to reduce processing time and support public engagement. It's a win for the city and its citizens."

Hialeah Gardens is yet another SMARTGov customer to convert from the 30-Day Trial Program. With the trial, organizations have a fully-functioning system using pre-developed data that can be manipulated to experience the robust feature set of SMARTGov software at no charge to help jurisdictions more easily evaluate how this technology can create value for their city or county.

Hialeah Gardens is a city in Miami-Dade County at the southern tip of Florida. With a population of more than 20,000, the municipality is located close to Okeechobee Road (U.S. Route 27/State Road 25) and the Palmetto Expressway (State Road 826), affording Hialeah Gardens the opportunity to become one of the fastest growing cities in the county.
