NovaLIS Technologies – a leading provider of integrated land records management solutions – is the ESRI Canada Business Partner of the Year for 2002. NovaLIS received the award from ESRI Inc., at the ESRI Business Partner Conference in Palm Springs, California in March.

“NovaLIS Technologies is a strong international player,” says ESRI Canada President Alex Miller about the selection of NovaLIS as this year’s award recipient.

“NovaLIS is successfully delivering Parcel Editor and its entire suite of ESRI-based integrated land records management solutions worldwide. This accomplishment is evident in recent Canadian wins such as British Columbia Assessment Authority.”

Working with ESRI Canada and other strategic partners, NovaLIS Technologies won several key Canadian accounts last year. These wins included a contract with BC Assessment Authority – currently one of the largest CAMA implementation projects in North America with more than 1.7 million parcels. International projects are also ongoing in countries such as Ireland, Australia, and Jamaica.

Recipients of the Partner of the Year award have strong sales records for 2002, brought an innovative product to market, brought ESRI into a new market with their specialized knowledge and expertise, teamed successfully with ESRI on a project, or were distinguished in some other way from the other partners in their region. NovaLIS qualified on all aspects of the award.
