Esri Launches Small Government Departmental Platform Program
Esri’s new Small Government Departmental Platform Agreement allows for unlimited deployments of core ArcGIS software within one governmental department. Departments that have plans to integrate GIS in multiple workflows, such as assessors, health and human services, public works, fire, and planning departments, can use this program to rapidly achieve their goals.
“Esri is always seeking to support departments that have a real vision for using GIS throughout their operations,” said Christopher Thomas, director of government markets, Esri. ”This program helps them get there faster.”
This program is ideal for departments that want to:
- Increase ArcGIS software and Software as a Service (SaaS) deployments
- Have flexibility when deploying GIS to desktops, servers, and mobile devices
- Have a predictable annual licensing model
The County of Tazewell, Virginia, population 45,936 was the first to participate. “This program has given the Tazewell County Engineering Department access to more tools and programs to help create and maintain better GIS data,” said Kenneth Dunford, assistant county engineer.
The Small Government Departmental Platform Agreement program is open to all governments in the United States with populations of 100,000 or less.
