GL Solutions has been contracted to meet the agency's need for a new and more effective license, financial tracking, and inspection system.

Clark Hepper, Office of Health Protection Administrator stated that the “new system will enable the South Dakota Department of Health to offer a more efficient way in doing business with the licensing, inspection and records management for our licensed establishments.”

GL Suite[TM] will also allow OHP an economical transition from a paper based inspection program to an electronic inspection process that is performed in the field.
