Shortly after the City of Edmonton went live with POSSE, they won a URISA award for Exemplary Systems in Government, and the software began to attract attention from government agencies worldwide. The software also garnered numerous awards, including the prestigious recognition of induction into the Smithsonian Institution’s collection of innovative software!
Over time, more government agencies were seeking pre-configured software solutions for managing workflow. To meet this need, Computronix used the POSSE platform to build two browser-based Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) software solutions – POSSE PLS (Permitting & Licensing System), and POSSE ABC (Alcoholic Beverage Control). POSSE PLS is a solution for managing all the business processes related to municipal land management, including planning, permitting, inspections and code enforcement. POSSE ABC manages licensing, enforcement and other workflows associated with liquor control at the state or provincial level. Both solutions are used by a steadily growing number of government agencies across North America.
POSSE is continually being refined, upgraded and improved to stay ahead of client needs and industry trends, and POSSE clients are constantly coming up with new and inventive uses for the software. POSSE has had a long and impressive history for what was originally a simple software tool, but it’s far from finished. And even with everything that’s been done with POSSE so far, Computronix and our clients continue to find innovative ways to harness its flexibility and configurability.
