Farmersville, CA Implements the Full Suite of MyGov Software Products

Posted by Hannah - 13 October, 2020

Located in the heart of San Joaquin Valley sits Farmersville, CA - a thriving city full of history and charm. The City of Farmersville has a growing population of diverse individuals who make up the community.

At the beginning of 2020, the agency leaders in Farmersville knew they needed a software system to move city processes online. Without a software system to manage city functions, the agency replied on a variety of manual processes to complete daily tasks. Relying on manual systems took away time and resources that were valuable to the agency’s success.

In their search for a way to save time, money and manage agency processes efficiently, department leaders in Farmersville, CA, chose to implement the full-suite of MyGov products to include: Permit, Code Enforcement, Business License, Work Order, Asset Management, Credential Manager, Lien and Collection, GIS/Mapping, and Request Manager.
