Permit Tracking & Construction Inspections

For tracking building permits and inspecting new construction for building code compliance.

CityReporter is your ideal solution to help with the Building Permit process.

Your problem is not unique. Municipalities everywhere are looking to improve on the permitting process because:

insufficient staff to handle the post-recession building boom
long permitting wait times with substantial backlogs
building permits with incomplete final occupancy inspections
building code violations with little or no followup inspections

If you are under pressure to resolve your planning department issues, then have a look at what CityReporter can do for you. Our Building Permit software can make the process a lot easier 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 able to update the permit every time the status changes, such as when the plans are ready for review and when the application has been approved. Our Permit Management tool provides detail tracking including options for:

  • Multiple units
  • Assessment info
  • Permit types & required inspections
  • Owners and contacts including contractor details
  • Stats for council and provincial/state governments
  • Customizable fee structure providing you the flexibility needed
  • Generate a custom permit report to match your cities current version

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.

With a few taps on their touch screen, they can search for a permit and complete an inspection checklist. Code violations can be documented with photos and comments. To prevent errors, all required inspections must be completed before finalizing the permit.

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 contractor. Inspectors can also send the report to a wireless printer if the contractor wants a hard copy.

Easily see the current status of every building permit
Avoid missing or skipping critical steps in the process
Schedule inspections and sync to your Outlook calendar
Eliminate inspection forms, paperwork, and spreadsheets

” 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.”

Robert Blain, Northern Rockies Regional Municipality
