Schenectady County Selects SDL

SOMERSET, NJ – May 3, 2022 - Spatial Data Logic is excited to announce our newest client, Schenectady County. Located in the Capital Region of New York State, the county oversees 8 municipalities and will be using SDL Connect to streamline services for its 150,000+ residents.

Currently, Schenectady County relies on fillable PDFs which require residents to either print and upload the form, or return the completed form to the county’s office. Having secured some recent grant money, Schenectady County hopes to use SDL Connect to create a more seamless process for the public to apply for applications and forms online. 

The county’s new software includes SDL Forms, an intuitive digital form builder, that its IT department can use to build online forms with customized backend workflows. Some of the processes the county wants to bring online include its daycare reimbursement forms and gun permit applications which involve collecting personally identifiable information and documents. With SDL Forms, Schenectady will now be able to offer these services online thanks to an integration that will help the county accept and verify the authenticity of sensitive documents such as driver's licenses and social security numbers. Additionally, SDL Forms offers integrations to provide HIPAA-level security and compliance for file uploads and storage, in addition to other security features when viewing sensitive files. 

Once the forms have been created, Schenectady County will have the option to add the forms to SDL’s citizen platforms and its county website. When a form is submitted online, the appropriate party will be notified and can use SDL’s cloud-based software to review and process the request.

“Governments are facing rising expectations to move services online,” said Jack Flood, Vice President of Operations at Spatial Data Logic. “With SDL Connect, clients have a combination of cloud-based software, citizen platforms and municipal websites that can be used to create streamlined, digital services for the public. We are thrilled to partner with Schenectady County and look forward to helping the county provide better online services for its citizens.”
