Village of Deerfield, Illinois, Chooses OpenGov as Digital Permitting Partner

The Village of Deerfield, IL, was faced with marked growth, budget constraints and a digital permitting solution that didn’t meet its needs. That’s when it decided to partner with OpenGov, the leader in modern cloud ERP software for our nation’s cities, counties, and state agencies.

The Village, located north of Chicago, was in need of a comprehensive tool for its Community Development team. Thanks to its partnership with OpenGov, the Village now has an end-to-end solution that will provide value for many years to come. Village leaders are excited to begin working toward a long-term goal of housing Community Development role-based workflows within one collaborative tool that will save time and boost productivity.

When designing workflows with OpenGov Citizen Services, the Community Development team will be able to precisely mirror its permitting and licensing approval process and pull visual reports of results. Permitting and licensing submissions will flow electronically through reviews, automatically assigning each step along the way. A bonus: high-priority development initiatives will be able to flow through the approval process faster.

While Community Development will be the first to benefit from the new software, Village leaders are future-focused on scaling its automation capabilities.

The Village of Deerfield joins more than 1,000 public sector organizations leveraging OpenGov to revolutionize work processes with cloud-based software designed specifically for the needs of government.
