IT/GIS Department Will Deploy Unlimited ArcGIS Software throughout Organization
Redlands, California - August 13, 2008―The City of Frankfort, Kentucky, population 28,000, has signed an ESRI Small Municipal and County Government Enterprise License Agreement (ELA). This agreement allows all staff in the capital city's government to access geographic information system (GIS) software that will improve productivity and enhance service to citizens.
"Now the new GIS office in the IT department can deploy desktop, server, and mobile GIS software quickly and uniformly throughout the enterprise without worrying about software license procurement," said Julsun Pacheco, IT manager, City of Frankfort. "Without this program, we would be unable to deploy GIS to all of our departments and develop the GIS-based applications we need."
The city is currently using GIS in the police, fire, and E-911 dispatch departments. In addition to providing more departments with GIS software and applications, Pacheco is looking forward to extending GIS capabilities into the field so staff can collect data and edit the GIS database in real time. He also plans to use GIS and GPS to allow dispatchers to view real-time locations of transit buses, maintenance crews, and recycling and sanitation trucks to track the progress of work throughout the day.
"I would like to showcase what GIS can do to enhance operations and the running of the city," Pacheco said.
The ESRI Small Municipal and County Government ELA program is available to municipalities and counties in the United States with populations of 100,000 or less. The program provides access to ESRI GIS technology with a straightforward, tiered pricing schedule. Advantages include updated versions of GIS software for a consistent platform; flexible deployments to desktops, servers, and mobile devices; and the ability to incorporate GIS into mission-critical applications and workflows.
