Oregon State Marine Board Selects Iron Data’s CAVU Solution
NOTE: This press release was issued prior to the merger between MicroPact and Iron Data.
May 23, 2013, Salem, OR – The Oregon State Marine Board (OSMB) will be working through the Oregon E-Government Program with the assistance of NICUSA, Inc. (NASDAQ: EGOV) and sub-contractor Iron Data to upgrade their 22 year old licensing system to the CAVU product suite. The CAVU product suite provides an integrated licensing and enforcement solution that will allow OSMB to meet its long term goals for expanded online public services and improved staff productivity. The Board will implement the CAVU product suite which includes a back office solution and a licensing portal. The product was developed for regulatory agencies and offers OSMB the flexibility and features to streamline titling and permits as well as support complex licensing and case management needs from a single, integrated solution. Other benefits include improved data accuracy, reporting capabilities and faster customer service. The new system will provide the public with online self-service options including the ability to submit boat registrations and address changes.
The project is scheduled to be completed in 12 months. NICUSA, Inc. and Iron Data’s alliance has a proven implementation approach which is designed to speed up implementations, minimize client staff time and reduce risk. Iron Data’s implementation services include project management, business process change, full service data conversion, acceptance testing, production support, and system and end user training.
The Board chose to partner with NICUSA, Inc. and Iron Data for a number of reasons including the highly configurable and flexible solution that can easily adapt to OSMB’s future needs, 20+ years’ experience delivering licensing and enforcement solutions, and proven track record of success with regulatory projects of similar size, scope and complexity.
