When the COVID pandemic shut down offices across the country last year, state regulatory agencies had to adapt quickly to remote work. Some, like the Nevada State Board of Accountancy, had invested in the software such a dramatic change required. Others, like the Mississippi Board of Cosmetology, had not.
In the months since, Congress has allocated hundreds of billions of dollars to state and local governments. Recognizing the changing nature of work, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act contained funding directed explicitly to support remote work by public employees. Regulatory agencies are now in a strong position to acquire or update labor-saving software.
GL Solutions has developed enterprise software for professional licensing agencies since 1997, when the company was formed by former regulators with the Oregon Department of Justice. We continually update our configurable application, GL Suite, to leverage new technology and meet the changing needs of public agencies.
What do regulatory agencies need?
These days, regulatory agencies need to support remote work. Here are just a few of the ways GL Solutions and the GL Suite application make that possible:
- Browser-based. Regulatory staff can log in securely and do their work from any location with Internet access. The application supports all major browsers.
- Self-service Web portals. Your licensees can apply and renew online, allowing your agency to go completely paper-free.
- Verification Web sites: Public facing websites allow employers and consumers to verify license status and review disciplinary actions, virtually eliminating calls to your office.
- Printable licenses and certificates: The GL Suite system can email printable licenses automatically to applicants when all requirements have been met. Bye, bye mailman.
Leverage GL Solutions’ expertise
With a subscription-based installation, your agency can begin work almost immediately on the software system you need. For a monthly fee based on your user count, we will design and build your system on an agreed-upon schedule. You can be up and running – and your staff working remotely – as much as a year earlier than you would through the standard procurement process.
GL Solutions can design and develop your regulatory system quickly because we’ve done it so many times – and because it’s all we do. Since the company’s formation more than 20 years ago, we have installed systems for scores of licensing agencies in dozens of states. We have developed a library of nearly 100 configurable business processes and a project management methodology tailored to the needs of regulatory agencies.
