CEO at Granicus, Mark Hynes said that from buying a home to applying for a marriage license, the exchange of records is an essential and vital connection point amid residents and government service providers. Local governments, too often, are weighed down by aging legacy systems and manual processes that restrict their capability to operate effectively or provide modern experiences to their constituents. By taking SouthTech Systems’ software and expertise into the Granicus family, Hynes said that their customers will benefit from proven modern technologies, which meet the requirements of the most sophisticated records processors in the U.S.
