Your citizens can submit requests through the citizenserve online portal on your municipal website. Upon location selection and property data input, a street view image of the property is automatically imported from your parcel data. Requests are then automatically routed the appropriate inspector based on the request type and specific location.
Your inspectors can receive automatic reminders of re-inspection as they become due, which can conveniently be viewed as a list or on a map. They can also quickly enter inspection comments, document additional violations, upload safety alerts, attach photos, and generate a notice of violation all on a mobile device.
Your inspectors can quickly and easily enter specific violations, including by ordinance or description. They can also enter a follow up date to automatically schedule a re-inspection based on the appropriate time frame. Inspectors can also track multiple violations per case with the individual violation status tracking feature.
Inspectors can attach an unlimited number of photos to their case files. Photos can be taken from mobile devices, and attached through the online portal in one easy step. These photos can be attached to Notice of Violations or other letters inspectors can generate on the spot. They can also easily view thumbnail images of every photo in an existing file.
