The Davenport Group began as a GIS and municipal consulting firm in 1996. As we continued working closer with local governments, we recognized a gap that needed to be filled. That gap was quality software that could make the lives of our customers and their co-workers easier. In 2004 our LAMA software was born. As we grew, our client base grew, as well as their needs. With the release of the LAMA Suite in 2008, we had developed a highly customized and feature- rich program which could integrate with almost all aspects of local government.
LAMA has adapted over the years and continues to. We are always developing new features and expanding what the suite can provide for our clients. During these last ten years, we have continuously added clients – some big, some small – and staff.
We are proud that every professional we have added to our staff is still with our team, and every client we have ever put on LAMA is still using the program and on annual maintenance. To us that speaks wonders for our staff, our software and our services. We have had great success so far and hope to continue on that path.
The Davenport Group is recognized as both ESRI and Microsoft Business Partners and Developers (1996, 2004). Today we can say with pride that LAMA is a state of the art, highly configurable, GIS-based, .NET-based, SQL server-based program. We are recognized in our field for providing a level of service that is unprecedented in the marketplace. With all that said, we are a fun bunch of developers and experts in our respective fields, and would welcome the opportunity to share our ideas with you.
