Deliver Your Services in a Whole New Way

The way you do business is changing.
What if you could change with it and deliver your services in a whole new way?

The ability to work virtually has become a necessity for your staff and constituents. Citizens, business owners, and contractors expect the ability to conduct business with their municipalities electronically. Citizenserve provides online processing for the full lifecycles of permitting, planning & zoning, code enforcement, licensing, and inspection.

The flexible portal enables constituents to submit applications, upload documentation, schedule inspections, submit complaints, and pay fees online. Our customers have reported that over 80% of permit and license applications and license renewals are submitted online, reducing the workload of your staff and the paperwork hassles for your customers. Municipalities find that constituent adoption is rapid; one customer reported going from 20% online permits to 80% plus in less than 3 months.


We were pretty demanding there for a while, trying to get everything dialed in the way we wanted it, and everyone has been awesome at helping us. I wish we would have gone this route years ago.
