Detailed tracking

Permits are tracked by category and sub-category. The permit is tied to either the property owner or the contractor applying for the permit. Each permit can be assigned to an employee/inspector and the process documented by date, activity, description of the activity, status, and completion date. The application tracks files pertaining to the permit, including follow-up dates, and specific notes. Users add activities, inspections, assigned employees, steps taken, as well as custom database fields. In addition, any customization done by the user is completely integrated into the functions of the application include searching, data management, and reporting. Activities can be assigned to an inspector/employee, and each employee can track the notes, dates, and the status of each permit.

GIS tracking

Each permit can be mapped with satellite imagery and/or connected to parcel data. Zoom into an aerial photograph or search by address to place a point on a GIS mapping layer. Each permit can be assigned XY coordinates.

Document upload and storage

It’s easy to upload documents, including building plans and photos, to each permit. Detailed notes can be recorded by date for each permit. All documents associated with permits, including inspection documents, permits, certificates of occupancy, letters and more are stored in the permit record and accessible from anywhere.
