They have insufficient staff to handle the building permits workload
Old paper based methods create long permitting wait times with substantial backlogs
They have finalised building permits with incomplete final occupancy inspections
They are unable to track building code violations to perform follow up inspections

If you are looking for a solution to improve and modernize your planning departments permit process have a look at what CityReporter can do for you. Our Building Permit software can provide a faster, more effective process for you and your team.

How CityReporter Building Permit Software Helps

1. Create and Manage Permits from Application through to Final Occupancy.

Planning staff are aware of creation and updates for each permit. Every time the status changes such as when the plans are ready for review and when the application has been approved they can be notified automatically. Our Permit Management tool provides detailed information tracking including:

  • Attachment of digital copies of plans and documents to each permit
  • Creating multiple units on a single permit
  • Detailed assessment information
  • Creating custom permit types & required inspections
  • Owners and contacts including contractor details can all be updated in the field
  • Statistical reports for council and provincial/state governments
  • Customizable fee structure to suit your needs
  • Digital signature capture and mobile printing capability
  • Secure unlimited digital record storage

2. Complete All Building Code Inspections.

Building officials can head out to the job site with the CityReporter building permit software on their smartphone or tablet. CityReporter works in the field without requiring any data connection to perform inspections.

Our built in scheduler helps you plan your workload and manage your time in the field.

With a few taps on their touch screen, they can search for a permit and complete an inspection using supplied and custom checklists. Code violations or concerns can be documented with photos and comments. All deficiencies found are marked and tracked to ensure re-inspection occurs before finalising of the permit.

WI-FI or cellular data connections can be used to file your inspections to the cloud when you are ready.

3. File The Inspection Report.

After completing the inspection, the building official taps a button and CityReporter compiles everything into a concise report that’s filed in the cloud. The permit is automatically updated to show which inspections are remaining.

A detailed copy of the inspection report can be automatically emailed to the owner and contractor. Inspectors can also use any available wireless printer to produce a hard copy for the contractor.

” With our old paper-based system we struggled with lost forms, having to print photos to insert in building files, and purchasing expensive multi-part forms. All of these problems are now a thing of the past. Our files are now complete, legible, and have photos to document our findings.”
