Constituent Convenience

Provide constituents with the online convenience they have come to expect and the ability to easily interact with their government. Online payments via an integrated credit card processor allow your government to collect payments for permits and renewals instantly as a requirement of form submissions, ensuring your department meets its budget goals on time.

Eliminate repetitive, time consuming work for your staff. Emails automatically send at the appropriate time to the appropriate property owner with a digital form to capture annual renewal payments and other necessary information such as proof of insurance.


Insights & Features to Improve Economic Conditions

Publish property valuations on a public-facing GIS map to attract responsible homeowners to your district. Aggregate and visualize data such as vacant properties to show where blight… and opportunity exist.

GovPilot's PropertyProfile feature offers a detailed view of each property at the parcel level—from images to a log of new and historical records across all departments of your government. 

Host an Online Property and Real Estate Auction with GovPilot in order to reduce blight, increase homeownership rates, and grow your tax base.
