ENKON introduces its new client: Botswana Ministry of Lands and Housing
Dr. Niko Zorkin, President of ENKON Information Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce that the Botswana Ministry of Lands and Housing has selected ENKON to develop, implement, and integrate a country-wide Land Information System (LIS) for the administration and management of land tenures for the government and people of Botswana. The Botswana LIS solution will be comprised of seven distinct land management business process modules: Deeds Registry; Plot and Plan Registry; Certificates of Grants; Common Law Leases; Mapping; Development Plan Management; and Asset Leases.
“We are delighted and honoured to be selected to develop and implement this ground breaking land information system for the country of Botswana. The LIS will streamline and integrate all of Botswana’s land registration business processes and distribute and share data securely between key government and non-government agencies, along with addressing land rights for three categories of tenure: Tribal Lands, State Lands, and Freehold Lands”, states Dr. Zorkin.
Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Lands and Housing, Mr. Thato Raphaka, reiterates that “having created the basis for individual ownership of land, the next step for Botswana is to convert their land information processes from a manual, paper-based model to a streamlined, electronic Land Information System. An effective and comprehensive computerized integrated Land Information System will have a highly positive impact for the people and the government of Botswana, and will provide many social, political, environmental, and financial benefits for our country. We are pleased to be working with ENKON, as they are ideally positioned to manage and implement this unique LIS solution for us.”
Granite is just the latest aggregate company to realize the advantage of using enviroLIS. This collaboration joins the strong partnerships that ENKON already has with some of the largest aggregate companies in North America, including Hanson, Martin Marietta, Lafarge, Cemex, and Titan. Modular, web-based enviroLIS is the ideal application to meet the varying needs of these companies. Executive, managers, and field staff can all access the information they need from any location – whether in the office, at the plant, or on the road.
ENKON Awarded Washington State Conservation System Contract
Victoria, B.C., August 5, 2008 – ENKON Information Systems Inc. announced today that the Washington State Conversation Commission has awarded ENKON the contract to create the Conservation Practice Data System (CPDS).
CPDS was initiated in 2006 as the Watershed Data Pilot Project (WDPP), a web-based repository for the state's conservation districts' habitat restoration projects. The project provides Washington State conservation districts, the Washington State Conservation Commission (WSCC), and other local entities supporting habitat restoration with a single web-based application and repository of project and monitoring data.
The WSCC has subsequently obtained government funding to formalize this innovative analytical tool, and ENKON, the original developer behind the WDPP, has won the opportunity to work with the WSCC once again.
CPDS will promote collaboration across conservation districts and between government departments, present data from environmental and ecological projects and studies across Washington State, and demonstrate the wider ramifications of individual efforts to improve environmental health. Harnessing powerful mapping and reporting tools, this broader focus dismisses boundaries and opens up exciting possibilities for learning how to make a genuine and lasting difference to the wellbeing of the state. ENKON is thrilled to be a part of this groundbreaking project.
CPDS is based on enviroLIS, ENKON'S Environmental and Land Information System. This modular, web-based software system provides a comprehensive information management solution for environmental and land managers. enviroLIS is an ideal tool to comply with today's regulations to track, monitor, and reduce the environmental impact on our world.
Over the last 10 years, ENKON has deployed enterprise-level environmental and land information management systems for public and private sector clients in the USA, Canada, Australia, and Europe.
