What makes CDS different than other options?

City Data Services, (CDS), provides complete, comprehensive grant and loan management software exclusively to Cities, Counties and Non-Profits. Our management solutions are cloud-based and standalone without commingling functions with existing public IT systems.
CDS is built on the premise that whoever generates the information, enters the information and one piece of information informs all reports and forms requiring the information. All public services, housing, homeless services, economic development and health services can be managed through CDS, saving a minimum of 30% of Staff grant/loan management time, AND we are extremely conscientious about protecting public data, unlike other companies, we do not utilize your data for anything other than your management needs.
City Data Services provides seamless end to end functionality from applications to contracts, reports to automatic entry into IDIS, and automation of CAPER tables, monitoring and compliance. Our systems transform Staff from redundantly entering information to efficient managers of information.
Customer Service is another mainstay of City Data Services. We are a California company, building and managing our company in the state since 2008. We not only build your system to suit, but we populate it with report information, housing regulatory agreements and fiscal information for streamlining your work.
The only aspect of our company that is not automated is our response to our users, CDS Staff responds quickly to all of our users, yes all including the hundreds of non-profits and housing developers that provide information to our clients.
City Data Services, reliable and trusted software service providers since 2008. We strengthen what you do and in terms of management time, We Save You Half of Thursday and All of Friday!
