Citizenserve can help you deliver instant over-the-counter permits and licenses to your constituents. Why route for review, when you can just collect fees and deliver the permit online? The process is easy; applicants fill out a simple online form, pay online, and then download their permit.
Did you know citizenserve also supports remote inspections? Check out this video on Remote Video Inspections to see how. Jurisdictions can accept contractor or homeowner-created video recordings, uploaded photographs, or can perform the remote inspection using conferencing software such as Skype. Contact us to see how we can help you implement remote inspections, express permits, or other online solutions to support your municipality.
How We Configure Your Regular and Over-The-Counter Permits
Citizenserve configures your applications, both over-the-counter and those with a review process, with custom fields. This means we gather any information you need to manage your community development projects. Citizenserve software includes modules for Permitting, Licensing, Development Projects, Code Enforcement, Request Tracking, and a Citizens portal. Citizens submit applications, make payments, upload documents or send messages from the portal. The system notifies staff so no work is lost. Staff track review activities, notify applicants, track payments, and issue permits or licenses. License inspectors perform inspections on-site using our cloud-based software. Citizenserve's integrated modules let you view all files related to an address. Your citizenserve subscription also includes unlimited reporting. Metrics, another report type, provide a graphical view of processes to staff and management. Citizenserve's community development software helps you track and manage your projects.
Our Project Implementation Strategy
We begin each project with an agile implementation strategy. The Engagement Manager demonstrates new development work and gathers user feedback during weekly walk-through meetings. Whether we are building an over-the-counter permit or a regular permit with an automatically routed workflow, it's vital that each user test and play in the system after the weekly meeting. During this hands-on time, the user confirms the system works as expected, or uncovers any edge cases that should be addressed. Then the Engagement Manager incorporates user feedback and demonstrates new functionality during the next meeting. This process repeats until the user confirms the system works as desired. Finally, it's time to train system users and go live.
