EzGov solidifies e-gov alliances

Less than a month after announcing a strategic partnership with Electronic

Data Systems Corp., EzGov Inc. in May said it would work with PricewaterhouseCoopers

to offer business and technology solutions to help governments serve citizens.

Together, the two organizations will provide portal technology, transactional

applications and consulting services to federal, state and local governments.

On April 20, EzGov announced a similar deal with EDS, and last June,

the company announced an alliance with IBM Corp. to help EzGov gain ground

in the federal marketplace.

"We're pretty excited about both relationships," said Randy Street,

executive vice president of sales, marketing and government affairs at

EzGov. "We are a software company...and as such, working with the big integrators

is a very important part of our strategy."

Street said EzGov has been working with both EDS and PricewaterhouseCoopers

for about 10 months, but held off on formally announcing the relationships

until there were some government wins to share. "We wanted to have the

announcement and then action," he said. "There will be a flurry of [contract]

announcements in the coming months."

As part of the joint development and marketing agreement, EzGov will

offer its FlexFoundation and StateSuite products, and PricewaterhouseCoopers

will provide process improvement, customer relationship management, and

strategic change and technology services.

FlexFoundation is a scalable e-government software platform that enables

governments to build and manage their online presence from an integrated

foundation. StateSuite helps state and large local government agencies provide

online transactions to citizens and businesses.
