Digitized Permit Applications
GovPilot's Engineering Software enables property owners and contractors to apply for permitting covering a range of engineering, planning, zoning, and construction activities directly through your government's website.
From land use applications to tree removal permits, to lot split adjustment applications, your engineering department will dramatically speed up community development by streamlining engineering services on one unified cloud-based platform.
Constituents and contractors will appreciate the convenience of online forms and automated updates delivered in real-time by text message and email, notifying them of the status of applications, reviews, inspections, and permits.
Organize & Access Records
Access and share up to date parcel-level detail such as ownership and tax record data through GovPilot's GIS Map and Property Profile. Utilize the radius search tool to create radius searches in any desired shape, and quickly generate mail merge reports of surrounding parcels in order to send notifications.
View the status of in-progress permit and registration applications as well as all historical records related to individual properties.
Cross-reference data with the Construction and Planning and Zoning Departments in real time. Share accurate records with the Tax Assessor's office and other departments. Involve key players at each step of construction, in order to achieve key objectives.
Streamline Operations & Save Time
Automatically schedule fee collection and inspections to ensure that operations run smoothly, and building and construction projects remain on schedule. Review, inspect, and approve plans with speed, accuracy, and transparency. Eliminate your backlog of permit applications once and for all, and run an efficient engineering department that keeps your community growing.
Digital Integrations with The International Code Council's (ICC) Code Connect API and General Code’s eCode360, allows GovPilot customers to access modern digital codes directly through GovPilot modules, eliminating the reliance on traditional paper code books.
With GovPilot's local government engineering permitting software your department can ensure the safety of building and construction projects while maintaining a rapid pace of development.
"GovPilot's ease of use and being cloud-based means I can access it from anywhere at any time. Overall GovPilot provides a great experience."
Reports to the council are generated quickly by changing date ranges and exporting in mere clicks instead of a manual spreadsheet.
