Municipal Software Corporation: Canton, MI Up and Running in 'Record Time' with Automated Property, Planning, Permitting, Code Enforcement, Property Inspections and Cashiering System

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 30, 2006) - Municipal Software Corporation (TSX VENTURE:MSZ) -

Canton, MI, residents can expect an even more efficient local government, now that their community has gone live with the first ever CityView Prebuilt™, a new software that automates its property, planning, permitting, code enforcement, property inspections and cashiering systems.

Municipal Software supplied its newly-launched, CityView PreBuilt Solution-an off-the-shelf, yet customizable software system in response to Canton's need for a quick, convenient solution. Within 100 days of signing the deal, Canton went live. The implementation of CityView is expected to produce significant cost savings over the next ten years.

Iain McLean, Chief Executive Officer for Municipal Software, said, "We are pleased that a municipality like Canton, that prides itself on delivering a high level of customer service, chose to work with CityView, despite having limited resources, limited time and the need for a quick solution. The availability of PreBuilt Solutions reduces the implementation time on projects such as this substantially and will allow us to service this market segment. We can only expect to grow faster and faster with providing customizable software solutions to municipalities."

"It was important that our residents were not inconvenienced by legacy systems that were in need of replacement. Implementing the entire suite of Pre-Built modules required a tremendous effort by everyone involved. While not without some bumps along the way, implementation has been successful and the processes put in place are facilitating user's ability to integrate CityView with Canton's existing business processes," said Judy Bocklage, Senior Planner and Project Manager.
