The state Liquor and Cannabis Board has selected a product from a Poulsbo company to support its licensing and enforcement operations throughout the state.

Paladin Data Systems’ SMARTGOV is a cloud-based product that will manage the state’s alcohol and cannabis permitting and licensing processes.

The system will allow the state to process applications faster, and “empowers applicants to become active participants in the permitting and licensing process, providing all of our citizens with information transparency,” Paladin CEO Jim Nall stated in a release.

The system will allow businesses to apply for permits, upload documents and monitor those applications online.

Liquor and Cannabis Board spokesman Mikhail Carpenter said SMARTGOV will replace the agency’s old, outdated licensing system and will make the permitting process less complex for both state employees and customers.

The agency is expected to begin using SMARTGOV in late 2017, Carpenter said.
