CentralSquare, a public sector technology provider, yesterday announced the launch of its Property Tax Software solution to the U.S. market during its ENGAGE 2022 user-community conference, according to a press release.
The company says the cloud-based solution replaces legacy systems and decreases corporate risk, enhances efficiency and improves service delivery to constituents. The product was built and is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS), which the company says helps streamline and enhance user experience at scale.
“We are thrilled to bring the Property Tax solution to the U.S. market and further our relationship with AWS,” stated Dara Brenner, CentralSquare Technologies’ Chief Product Officer, in the release.
“CentralSquare prioritizes investing in our market and customer base while simultaneously meeting customers where they are in their digitalization process. We saw the need in the U.S. market and are excited to undertake this initiative to set up current and future customers for success,” Brenner said.
The company also stated that despite large variation in local and state government requirements, the solution is scalable and flexible to ensure all customers comply with U.S. tax laws.
While the product is targeted towards municipalities that need a tax collection solution, CentralSquare also said it provides constituents with an easier way to pay their taxes.
“There is increased demand for cloud-based solutions that allow state and local government agencies to serve constituents effectively and securely,” said Morgan Reed, Executive Government Advisor at Amazon Web Services. “AWS is pleased to host this innovative solution and to better allow governments to provide innovative, cutting-edge service delivery. CentralSquare’s solution delivers what government agencies need.”
Originally launched in Ontario, Canada in January 2021, the Property Tax is already utilized by Chatham-Kent and Halton Hills customers. The company says the U.S. launch emphasizes its goal to invest and provide customers with highly capable public administrative services in North America.
