NovaLIS Technologies and business partner Concord Engineering & Surveying Inc. are pleased to announce Richmond County, North Carolina will "˜go live' with NovaLIS Land Development Office in January 2005.

The January implementation links the GIS, with permits issued by the Zoning, Building Inspections, and Environmental Health Departments. Initially, Land Development Office will be used daily by more than a dozen County employees to manage its 35,000 parcels. Armstrong says that the scalability of the product was a major selling point, and the County is considering expanding the implementation to include a Web interface and NovaLIS Assessment Office.

Richmond County already had a strong relationship with Concord Engineering before the NovaLIS implementation, and the three departments developed a successful partnership during the implementation.
