The City of Mountlake Terrace will soon be converting its community development software to a subscription cloud service, announced its software contractor Paladin Data Systems Corporation of Poulsbo, Wash.
Paladin will implement its cloud-based technology for the city to track all aspects of zoning and codes, including permit issuance, inspections and code endorsement, in addition to creating a public portal for self-service public access to the system. For the city, it will be a transition from its current Paladin software to cloud-based features of the company’s SMARTGov program.
“The City of Mountlake Terrace has been a great customer of Paladin for years and I am very excited to move them to our cloud-based SMARTGov solution,” said Jon Byrd, Paladin Sales Executive. “SMARTGov provides a number of improved features such as enhanced online portal capabilities. Citizens will have full front counter services available to them 24/7 via SMARTGov’s enhanced public portal. I am personally excited to see the results.”
The portal enables the public to 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, Byrd added.
“SMARTGov is very easy to use and I am looking forward to getting fully up to speed on it,” said Lance Kinnamon, building official for the City of Mountlake Terrace.
No timetable was released as to when the SMARTGov software features would be operational for the City.
