Thomas P. Theobald

Tom Theobald began business in 1984 as a small software developer in Wayne County, Pennsylvania after earning his degree in computer science from Penn State. Responding to the needs of his local county, his company designed and developed software packages for the Assessment Office, Tax Claim Bureau, Domestic Relations Office, Voter Registration Office and the Office of the Commisioners as well as a collections package for the local Tax Collectors. The company evolved over the years, and the scope of the projects broadened as well as increased in size. Today our scope of work includes not only software design, but a complete set of printing services all aimed specifically to satisfy the needs of our Pennsylvania County Government clients. Sullivan, Tioga, Warren, York, Wayne and Wyoming. 


Our Software is Flexible

Flawless Integrations


Government Software Services recognizes that each county has its own needs that must be met. Unlike many other companies that design software for county governments, our software is flexible. Customization is our key. We work closely with our clients to make sure that our software satisfies all of our client's needs and requirements.

Our company has a tremendous success rate of integrating our software with other packages currently installed by other vendors. Our goal is to reduce your workload by seamlessly moving data electronically from one system to another.

Top-Notch Support


Our long-standing relationship with our clients and our insistence on top-notch support has contributed to our business success. Our teamwork approach to doing business has brought us much repeat business over the years, and Government Software Services has experienced steady growth as a result.

We look forward to working with you on your upcoming projects. We want you to be our next satisfied client.
