4 powerful reasons why CSDC's Permitting & Compliances Solution is ideal for governments

Manage the complete lifecycle of permits, centrally.

CSDC's Permitting and Compliance System allows the complete record for a building permit to be stored in one place. All information including digital drawings, payment data, applicant particulars, property details and more is stored in a single folder. This feature makes the information easy to access, or update, by both clerks and inspectors.

Speed up permits, with powerful tools.

CSDC's Permitting and Compliance System provides you with a variety of tools to make the permit process more efficient. It effectively shortens the permit lifecycle.

The powerful, adaptive, workflow engine routes the permit from official to official, in real-time, as each step is completed. This means that your building staff don't wait for an application to work its way from desk to desk. It saves everyone precious time. 

What's more, you can notify officials for their inputs by populating their task lists automatically. 

CSDC's Permitting and Compliance System incorporates your fee schedule. This auto-calculates and assesses the charges for permit including application, issuance, permit and services fees.

You can also integrate CSDC's system with your Point-of-Sale (POS) system to automatically track payments that you receive.  You can access this online, from any place that you are.

Enable inspections from the field, on smartphones and tablets.

CSDC's Permitting and Compliance System provides your inspectors with on-the-field access to their records. 

Inspectors can access their personal task lists. Or, violation histories, property records, past inspection results. What's more, they can complete their inspections, while still on the field. They can also print violation notices, attach pictures and capture signatures from the field.

The beauty is that none of this depends on an internet connection. 

Keep citizens happy. Enable access and services through a public portal.

CSDC's Permitting and Compliance System plugs into your web portal and your call centre. This means that you can now provide citizens, and other stakeholders, with flexible choices for access.

Imagine this. Citizens and businesses complete applications, submit and pay permit fees online. They can check the status of their permit. And receive comments, schedule or reschedule, view inspection results, plus add more attachments. All, from the convenience of their home.

  • To AMANDA, it's a process, but to the reviewer it looks like just a form to fill out. So it's getting more departments tied into it here, and then obviously using these tools to leverage our interaction with the public, so that the public has a better way to interact with us.
