City and County of Broomfield, Colorado, Reduces Process Challenges with OpenGov Online Permitting Software
The City and County of Broomfield, CO, which operate within a consolidated government, needed to streamline challenging manual processes within the Clerk’s Office, so officials partnered with OpenGov, the leader in modern cloud software for our cities and counties, on online permitting software.
The City and County, located between Denver and Boulder, grapple with explosive growth—the County’s population has grown more than 42% since 2010. The Clerk’s Office has been burdened with a decentralized, manual system that posed technical, payment processor, legal, and procurement challenges. To save time and reduce errors, staff needed to trade in spreadsheets, access files, and paper processes for an innovative permitting software. They chose OpenGov Permitting & Licensing.
OpenGov Permitting & Licensing will centralize processes for the office’s 15 types of licenses and permits, including the Clerk’s Office’s newly acquired Tobacco Licensing. OpenGov’s modern interface will simplify processes for both residents and staff. The intuitive public portal allows applicants to easily find the permit or license they need. Rather than waiting for manual applications to be processed, applicants can receive email notifications and check the status of their application online in real time. The solution can accelerate the process up to five times, saving staff countless hours in approving and issuing permits. Plus, staff will welcome time saved from fewer calls and walk-in visits.
