Ames, IA - Global Reach is proud to announce a partnership with the Iowa Finance Authority (IFA) in the creation of the COVID-19 Iowa Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Program. Last week Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds announced the approval of funds for a program to help Iowans who lost their jobs after March 17th, due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The program will assist those at risk of eviction or foreclosure for up to 4 months.
The application, created by Global Reach, matches applicants with various programs to help them avoid losing their home due to unforeseen COVID-19 related circumstances that caused a reduction in income. This is the most recent in a long series of projects with the IFA, which all started in 2005 when Global Reach developed an application to assist with the IFA's relief efforts during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
This was a 3-month project that Global Reach was able to deliver in 10 days by using SiteViz as the foundation for this solution. SiteViz is an enterprise-level CMS and e-commerce solution developed in Iowa by Global Reach. SiteViz is the preferred solution for government agencies that are allowed to have a choice. It is currently serving the needs of:
Treasurer of the State of Iowa
Iowa Attorney General
Iowa Judicial Branch
Iowa Board of Regents
Iowa State Auditor
Iowa Finance Authority
Iowa Department of Agriculture
When asked about the project, Global Reach President and CEO Iacovos Zachariades said, “This will be a great tool for those who need help. The team at Global Reach did a great job bringing the project to life and I am very proud of the dedication of my team. Utilizing SiteViz, our team completed this three-month project in just 10 days."
The application is hosted at the Global Reach High Availability data center and was developed to be able to handle 100,000 applications on day one.
