This combined understanding served as a solid foundation for building the best software solution available for Gaston County and, ultimately, North Carolina.

“The DEVNET system will significantly increase our efficiency and provide us the necessary tools to produce a great work product,” Tanner said. “Every part of the DEVNET program, from parcel maintenance to generating valuations, far exceeds what we first expected, and we are really excited to put it to use.
