Online Permitting and Code Enforcement Software

In today's demo, you’ll see example of citizenserve’s online permitting and code enforcement software. Citizenserve offers online solutions for Permitting, Licensing, Development Projects, Code Enforcement and Request Tracking. Watch as I submit a building permit application through the citizen portal. Then, I'll review the application to show what contractors, business owners, and citizens see when they submit an application. Next, we'll jump into the staff side of Citizenserve and perform the review activities required to approve and issue the permit.

Online Permitting Review Tools

Citizenserve offers many tools to support online permits, such as the Common Comments Book and the Document Markup Tool. Frequently cited comments are complied into an easy to use list called the Common Comments Book. Include these comments in communications to the applicant, or comment sheets to staff. Add shapes and comments to our site plans using the integrated Document Markup Tool. Include any comments in communication to the applicant or staff.

Citizenserve supports both consecutive and concurrent reviews. We'll configure your workflow to reflect your actual process. Each permit can have it's own workflow and set of required submittal documents. We'll work with you during project implementation to configure your permit applications and workflows.

Citizenserve also supports application changes and resubmission, plus it offers tools to help you communicate with the applicant. Resubmittals go through additional review routes, then approve and issue the permit.

It's easy to request an inspection with Citizenserve. Contractors submit the requests through the portal, and inspectors complete the inspection activity in the field. Citizenserve offers a central view of inspection data and history.

Once all inspections are completed, we final the permit and generate a certificate of occupancy.

Online Code Enforcement Software

Next, we delve into the Code Enforcement module of citizenserve. Citizens submit complaints and requests in the Citizen Portal. Citizenserve routes complaints and requests to the appropriate person or department. Working remotely, Inspectors can upload photographs and add violations to the inspection activity. It's also easy to schedule follow up activities and create notices and citations in the field.

The software includes a citizen facing portal, online application and payment, workflow routing, letter creation, and much more.

Short-Term Rental Registration

It is simple to register a short-term rental in citizenserve. Citizens fill out an online form from your own portal. Forms are sent to your staff or other departments for review. Alternatively, the form can trigger an certificate or approval letter. Our software also includes mobile inspection features. Inspectors add common comments from a list or complete a custom inspection form. They can also add violations, upload photos, and create notices on site. Inspection reports can be a letter or email and can include uploaded photos.

Renew a Short-Term Rental Registration

Renewal is easy in citizenserve. Staff run a custom report that batches expiring short-term rental registrations. This report also clears required data from the registration form. Rental owners are notified to complete the renewal and pay online. Citizenserve also offers reports and metrics to help you manage your work.

We are Configurable!

Do you want to track square footage on your registrations? No problem! During your project build we work with you every week to show what we’ve built.

Business License Renewal Training Video

Business License Renewal Training

In this training video, the engagement manager trains new users on the business license renewal process. Every customer is unique, so we'll build your process to suit your needs. We use custom fields to build your forms so we can gather all the data you require. The business license module includes a citizen portal, where business owners can apply and pay for their own business licenses. Each application type can have its own workflow route and set of requirements documents. Staff can review applications, request changes, or approve and issue the licenses online. And with additional tools such as a browser-based document markup tool, convenient email and letter templates, and integration with other modules, citizenserve helps your staff be efficient and effective.

Project Implementation Strategy

Before we begin training our customers on the business license renewal process, we use an agile implementation strategy and work with our customers closely to configure their site to their needs. During weekly walk-through meetings, an Engagement Manager will demonstrate new development and gather user feedback. After the walk-through, it's very important that each user test and play in the system to confirm it works as expected, and to discover any edge cases that must be addressed. The Engagement Manager will incorporate user feedback and show it off during the next weekly meeting. Once the user is satisfied that the system works as desired, it's time to train system users and go live.
