WHAT WE DO
Governmental Data Services (GDS) is a software company that has provided services in the governmental sector since 1988. What started as a tax office's need for a billing and collections system has increased over time into other products and services that provide business and administrative solutions to clients. Our goal is to be relevant based on the following core values.
From a technology perspective, relevance is moving forward strategically and having knowledge and visionary foresight to lead technology. Commitment to the cloud and partnering with Amazon AWS to deliver our software as a service (SaaS) have enabled our clients to benefit from the following:
Cost Savings: Perhaps the most significant benefit is the impact on the budget. Current and future invested IT capital spending and services are relatively inexpensive. Providing cloud service eliminates the need for in-house server, storage, and application requirements.
Reliability: With Amazon AWS, we can provide 24/7, more reliable, and consistent services than any other IT infrastructure.
Manageability: Our cloud solution provides enhanced and simplified IT management and support. The solution includes software and hardware updates, maintenance, and backups.
From a software perspective, relevance is providing business solutions that are practical and technology solutions that are current. Our design is based on our users' points of view and our combined knowledge of business and technology best practices.
From a relational perspective, relevance is building interpersonal and business relationships with each one of our clients. As much as we take pride in our products, we take tremendous pride in supporting our user community. Trust in a relationship means proving that you are reliable, responsible, and dependable. We see ourselves as back office extensions to each one of our clients.
From a delivery perspective, relevance is making decisions that will positively impact our clients. We chose Amazon AWS as our cloud platform because it is the number one cloud platform in the world. Our software solutions are integrated, i.e., billing and collections, online property tax payment system, and record retention systems. Our business process solutions, i.e., statement processing, address verification, and payment processing, help to drive direct costs and administrative overheads down. We keep costs low by making sound technical and business decisions. The savings get passed down to our clients regarding lower license fees and service costs.
From a manager's perspective, relevance is to achieve significance and yield a positive impact by striving not to be a success but rather to be of value to our clients.
