The ProfilesTM permit management system includes contractor licensing software and inspection tracking software, as well as user defined tables such as standard permit comments, zoning districts, council or police jury districts, employees.
The ProfilesTM interface is graphical... it is user friendly. This environment allows for a low training curve for employees. All complex functions are automated. This allows the user to concentrate on the accuracy and speed of issuing a permit in lieu of learning complex routines and functions typically associated with many municipal permitting systems.
ProfilesTM will allow the user to record all information necessary in the reporting, printing and analyzing of Building Permits, Electrical, Mechanical & Plumbing Permits, Occupancy Permits and Certificates of Occupancy as well as manage inspections and track contractor licensing. Finally, since this is a scalable / modular system, you need only to purchase the modules one requires to get started. As your facility grows, you may continue to add new modules thus further enhancing ProfilesTM
The Contractor Database Module will track all licensed residential, mechanical, electrical and plumbing contractors and verify their insurance requirements and license expirations automatically before issuing a permit.
Mailing labels are easily obtained from the database for the purpose of mailing renewal certificates or other information necessary in the continued communication to the building community, of code changes or other clarifications.
The database system was written by a Building Official, someone who understands the problems inherent with the administration of a permit and inspection office and their interaction with planning departments.
Other modules are available to make the administration of your office easier. The Planning Module tracks all new plats and property improvements and works with the other modules of the database system. The Customer Service Module will track work orders or customer complaint phone calls. You may also create your own compliance letters and automatically track responses to such correspondence.
The system has three methods of tracking various types of permits; (1) Type of Permit, i.e., Residential, Commercial... (2) Standard/Uniform Building Code Classification of Occupancy and (3) the Federal Government definition of Proposed Use which can also issue US Census style reports.
The system's scalable architecture can grow with your municipality. It may be modified to continuously suit the needs of your local government. Add additional modules to the system such as the Planning Module or the Municipal Street Numbering and Road Management Modules.
Track any additional permit attached to the property address with one button.
