A scalable and easy-to-deploy solution

The custom-built Local Government Access Viewer provides an easy-to-use interface that fulfils the requirements of local governments with predefined workflows for immediate deployment.


Has your local government adopted a cloud-first policy? Or perhaps it has already moved servers to a cloud-based infrastructure. In either case, Software-as-a-Service gives you access to a secure, scalable solution hosted by Esri that gets you up and running quickly with minimal hardware provisions.

Managed services solution

To minimise costs associated with server hardware, software and maintenance, a managed solution would be ideal - allowing quicker deployment and guaranteed support services.

Enterprise deployment

On the other hand, if your local government already has the resources in place, a deployment on your infrastructure or cloud would also be possible.
