Portland Picks CSDC's Enterprise Application Software

The Office of Planning and Development Review for Portland, Ore., has selected Amanda, an application-tracking and data-management system from Toronto-based CSDC Systems Inc., to handle a broad range of tasks including issuing and tracking building permits and land-use reviews.

The software will be used to track some 58,000 permits with a value of more than $1 billion. The decision is one step in a large business process re-engineering effort in Portland, according to Ann Kohler, communications manager for the Planning and Development Office. The contract value of the CSDC award is a little more than $1 million, according to CSDC's president, Thom Mitney.

Portland's decision was influenced by successful implementations of the software in Snohomish County, Wash., and St. Paul, Minn., Mitney said. "As each installation takes place, cities such as Portland can draw upon the experience of those who went before to share ideas and create their own unique solutions."

CSDC, which markets enterprise programs to track governments' business transactions involving property and people, maintains its U.S. headquarters in St. Louis, Mo.
