Key assets acquired from each of these organizations will expand digital solutions to code officials and provide professional development and training to plumbing and piping professionals
Washington, D.C. – The International Code Council has acquired the Municity building and code enforcement software and all the assets of Winn’s Career Education, Inc. ICC Community Development Solutions acquired Municity building and code enforcement software assets as well as technical personnel to expand development and support services for code officials. The Code Council has acquired all assets of Winn’s Career Education, Inc. to integrate with the organization’s staff expertise and provide premier training resources for plumbing and piping professionals.
Municity is a cloud-based software solution built with input from U.S.-based code officials targeting and supporting the permitting, licensing and inspection/code enforcement functions within a local jurisdiction. It automates governmental operations in land use planning, permitting, code enforcement, and inspections. Municity allows code officials to provide permits or issue certificates, conduct building, fire and safety inspections, and look up codes and standards efficiently and securely from anywhere.
ICC Community Development Solutions, a member of the Code Council Family of Solutions, has been a reseller of Municity for 18 years. Purchasing the software development will help expand the organization’s services and continue to provide real-time digital solutions for code officials to easily facilitate their day-to-day work from online permitting to remote virtual inspections.
“Merging and aligning Municity’s software development with ICC Community Development Solutions’ implementation and support operation will greatly enhance our ability to support our customers with a highly configurable product and great customer service and follow up,” said Dan Foster, General Manager of ICC Community Development Solutions. “Our customers will also benefit from our ability to tap the ICC membership for guidance and ideas for future development so that we can continue to meet our customers’ evolving needs for digitizing their operations.”
Prior to joining the Code Council, Winn’s Career Education, Inc. has primarily served plumbing and piping professionals in Texas, Florida, Louisiana and Colorado. As the Code Council’s very first Platinum Preferred Provider, Winn’s has worked closely long-term with Code Council staff in multiple states and provided cobranded ICC/WCE training materials for live, online, and self-paced courses.
In addition, Matthew Winn will be taking a new position at the Code Council as Senior Vice President of Training & Education.
“The addition of Winn’s Career Education, Inc. to the Code Council family of solutions will help to solidify the Code Council’s position as a premier training resource for plumbing professionals and contractors and continue our commitment to providing the building safety community with practical and relevant virtual learning opportunities,” said Mark Johnson, Code Council Executive Vice President & Director of Business Development. “We look forward to learning from each other and continuing our successful working relationship as one team.”
“When our dad, Curtis Winn, began teaching plumbing professionals in 1996, he simply wanted to spend his final working years sharing the knowledge he accumulated over a diverse career,” said Matthew Winn, Chief Executive Officer of Winn’s Career Education, Inc. “We couldn’t be more excited that the work our parents began in a living room will now serve trade professionals throughout the U.S. and around the world. We are truly honored by this unique opportunity.”
