utility permit Process Management
Customize the data you collect for your utility permits. Add custom sections and fields to capture all of the fields your agency requires. Using access control rights, provide specific security rights to each section or field, providing complete control over who can access and edit information. History and event logs track field changes made, providing audit trails for data management.
Create and require applicant or company registrations, ensuring that only registered individuals or entities are allowed to apply for permits.
Automatically add special provisions or terms & conditions based upon information entered by the applicant, or manually select special provisions for the utility permit when reviewing. Fees can be automatically calculated and added to the application, based upon project type, length or other conditions, while still providing the flexibility to manually add additional fees or refunds at a later time.
Forms, reports, and dashboards
Applicant and employee dashboards help to quickly find utility applications or permits, providing easy access to current applications and historical permits. Employees can view incomplete applications to assist applicants throughout the utility permit process.
Reports and forms can be customized to display the information you need in the format you want. Display reports in tabular view, or show in a calendar or map to better visualize the utility permit locations and dates. Export reports into various formats or shared reports, maps, and calendars with other employees, public users, and even other agencies. Forms and documents can be automatically created and emailed to approved applicants, providing official permit cards that can be used for enforcement, and accessed from mobile devices.
With OneGov, data entered by the utility permit applicant can dynamically determine how many approvals are required, or even if the application should be automatically approved. Dynamically add or remove fields and sections based upon applicant responses in prior fields. Real-time application modifications enable applicants and agencies to remotely work together on questions, adjustments, and issues.
Applicants can flag approved permits as ready for inspection, and copy expired permits to quickly and easily create a new permit. With expiration time-frames, status update, and automatic notifications, utility permit applicants can be informed as their permit changes status, or if it will expire soon.
Integrate with mapping services and GIS, allowing utility permit applicants specify their location from a map view. With online payments, applicants can pay for one or multiple utility permits quickly and easily, through a single transaction. Custom integrations into document management systems and financial systems are also available.
Inspections, Terms, and Fees
Whether a utility permit requires a single inspection or ongoing site visits, OneGov is able to meet your inspection needs through custom field and form creation, electronic approval, GPS location/coordinate tracking, field sketching, photo/media attachments, and more! Applicants have the ability to electronically request inspections; while inspectors can schedule inspection and site reviews from a calendar view.
Automatically add special provisions or terms & conditions based upon information entered by the applicant, or manually select special provisions for the utility permit when reviewing. Fees can be automatically calculated and added to the application, based upon permit data, while still providing the flexibility to manually add additional fees or refunds at a later time.
