Case Studies

Self-Service Public 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.

Process Automation

Design digital application workflows that mirror your exact process for permitting and licensing approvals, with a visual progress meter that records all post-submission activity. Let each submission flow electronically from intake through departmental reviews, automatically assigning steps to the next available employee. Reduce your average approval time to focus on higher priority initiatives.

Inspections Management

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.

Code Enforcement


Keep your community cleaner and safer by allowing easy online violation submissions and fee payments through a user-friendly customer portal. Empower proactive enforcement by centralizing case management and viewing trends in the data.


Renew Licenses

Standardize the license renewal process to support improved compliance and internal efficiency. In a few easy steps, completely automate license renewals in batches by type and renewal period.



Reporting & Transparency

Cannabis Licensing

Create dashboards and pull reports highlighting overall performance and payments received from workflows to share with management, collaborating teams, or the general public. This includes daily cash out reports, number of applications received across permit types, and project costs across departments.
