British Columbia Selects EnerGov to Provide State-of-the-Art Permitting, Licensing and Regulatory Compliance Software

EnerGov 9 Enterprise Server™ to Be Implemented in Canada's Third Largest Province

DULUTH, GA--(Marketwire - February 7, 2011) - The British Columbia Safety Authority (BCSA) oversees many of the regulatory and safety processes of Canada's third largest province. With over 4.5 million residents and a land mass of 364,800 square miles, the province of British Columbia is nearly four times the size of Great Britain and two and one-half times larger than Japan.

BCSA will replace its current aging client-server software with EnerGov's browser-based EnerGov 9 Enterprise Server™ platform; a much needed improvement as the software will be deployed across the expansive region and utilized within the agency's 13 satellite office locations.

The new EnerGov technology will support the BCSA across a variety of customer and constituency interactions, channels, safety services and regulatory process management functions, all of which will support the agency's mantra of "Do it right. Stay safe." The project includes a comprehensive, multi-phased approach to consolidating all of the BCSA's permitting, licensing, compliance and regulatory management processes into a centralized, enterprise-wide software application.

Throughout 2010, BCSA management evaluated and assessed the current state of its information management systems and realized that strategic changes were required with BCSA's core operating system. A comprehensive process was completed to articulate the case for change, evaluate change options, and develop the supporting business and ROI case for system replacement. Through a rigorous and competitive bid process, EnerGov was overwhelmingly selected as providing a comprehensive solution that would provide the best overall return on investment and could best fit the strategic goals of the agency.

"BCSA can trust EnerGov as a partner because of our unique specialization in providing leading permitting and regulatory management software and our proven track record of over 120 implementations within just the last 5 years," said Garth Magness, Vice President and Regional Business Development Manager for EnerGov Solutions. "With the EnerGov 9 Enterprise Server™ platform, BCSA can take advantage of leading technology that provides comprehensive automation and business processing functionality and shares crucial information and data across all entities."

"EnerGov is committed to providing solutions that bring value and a high return on investment to our clients and the constituency they serve," said Ryan Hountz, EnerGov's Director of Business Development. "Our specialized software platform consistently provides exceptional functionality and increased efficiencies, which is why our first clients are still our clients today. We're pleased and honored that British Columbia has chosen EnerGov and we look forward to our continued partnership."
