HELP YOUR CUSTOMERS HELP THEMSELVES

Customer Service

Make the permitting and licensing application process easy with an introductory questionnaire and customer portal

Begin each engagement with Smart Projects—an intake survey that guides applicants through a short questionnaire and generates a custom checklist of necessary forms and fees. This leads to the customer service portal where applicants can draft, submit, and view community development applications, pay fees online, and message reviewers.
 

SIMPLIFY INSPECTION SCHEDULING AND SITE VISITS

When it’s time for an inspection, let applicants request dates online and automatically assign inspectors. During the inspection, record results and upload photos from a phone or tablet onsite so that construction plans and feedback can be reviewed by contractors and government staff in real time.
