4 ways to manage your development cycle with CSDC's Permitting & Compliance

Make your workflows, seamless and integrated.

CSDC's Permitting & Compliance System is loaded with features. This helps your planners become the focal point, for both citizens and external agencies. This is true throughout the planning life cycle. Here's how.

The Milestone View rolls up sub-steps and smaller processes. It summarizes and communicates the status of your planning applications.

The Flowchart View acts as a Gantt chart. It provides a visual representation of your land development workflow. It helps users to drill-down to the individual processes.

What's better, you get to integrate external stakeholders directly into your workflow. You just grant them limited access to provide comments, conduct reviews and get sign-offs.

Generate advanced reports and documents, easily.

CSDC's Permitting & Compliance System pulls data from multiple sources. This makes it easy to generate a variety of reports and documents.

Besides, the system helps you manage all information at one place. Attach comments, clauses, financial information or embed maps for Public Consultations, Project Summaries, Notice of Hearings, Committee Meetings, Council Reports and more with the relevant supporting documents.

What's even better, is that the system allows you to leverage GIS, people and property data to create buffer notifications. All the stakeholders, affected by an application, get informed, or alerted automatically.

Review plans electronically and speedily.

CSDC's Permitting & Compliance System makes it easy to share, distribute and review plans across the organization and with external agencies.

Reviewers can view attached photos, plans, drawings, insurance information and associated correspondence. This helps to streamline the review process.

Markup tools including shapes, text, lines, highlights, annotations and callouts help speed up the review process. This makes your documents easier to navigate.

Integrate easily with MapTab and GIS, for quick project snapshots.

CSDC's Permitting & Compliance System's MapTab offers users a direct view of GIS information from within the application. It allows users to take snapshots of projects during the land development process. It provides a historical view and an audit trail.

The system's two-way integration with your GIS System allows you to create, edit or update GIS data from within the system, or externally.

CSDC's Permitting & Compliance System also provides you with a holistic view of all planning applications. This helps you view projects within the larger context of your Community Planning Strategy.
