Review and fulfill requests directly in the system and automate email responses to keep the requester informed of decisions made at each stage in the workflow.
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.
Automated Task Assignment & Inspection Scheduling
Manage planning and zoning project timelines with automatic alerts and a custom dashboard configuration. Access records and make updates directly from your calendar. Group users by department or project to keep everyone on the same page.
Utilize the Inspection App to assign, track, and complete inspections across relevant departments such as Engineering, and Building and Construction. Records are updated in real-time at the parcel level via GovPilot's GIS Map and Property Profile.
GovPilot’s radius search tool within the GIS map enables you to create radius searches in any desired shape from any point on a specific parcel, and quickly generate mail merge reports of surrounding parcels in order to send notifications.
With a cloud-based dashboard, data and records are easily shared among all stakeholders, paperwork is eliminated, and information flows efficiently between departments and constituents.
Electronically manage requests in a searchable database available to employees across all relevant departments, thereby eliminating communications silos and redundant work.
Transparent data keeps all parties aware of historical records, updates and new developments in real-time as they occur.
With GovPilot, the planning and zoning process becomes far more efficient and cost effective.
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.

“GovPilot makes our reporting extremely easy. It's a huge time saver."

“GovPilot is what my department has spent years searching for."
Paper-based permit application review and approvals that used to take 30 days now only take three days from time of submission with GovPilot.
There is a night and day difference with GovPilot. It has more than paid for itself through Report-a-Concern and the easy collection of fines.
Processing paper renewals previously took 15 minutes per paper application. Multiplied by 2,300 properties is 24 days worth of time saved with GovPilot!
The level of service is by bar far the best customer support I've ever received.
Prior to GovPilot, employees had to search for paper records filed in the basement and relay that information to a colleague or resident. Now, digital records are accessible in seconds by city employees, from any device at any time.
GovPilot eliminates the complexity of our old manual process and puts everything at our fingertips. Work that used to take days, now takes minutes.
Employees now take less than two minutes to enter information and instantly update the system rather than manually entering handwritten notes into Excel.
