Cloudpermit – a Finnish innovation with a global mission

We make your work easy

Cloudpermit simplifies the building permit process by digitalizing it and having it all in one digital space. Building departments of any size have access to tools that are traditionally only available to larger cities. Since it’s cloud-based, municipal building departments can modernize, innovate, digitalize, and access building permit processes – from applications to archives – from anywhere, anytime.

Why municipal building departments use Cloudpermit

To save time and money

Municipal building departments save up to 50% of their time (in development, operations, implementation, application intake, etc.) in building permit processes by using Cloudpermit instead of paper-based systems.

With Cloudpermit, municipal building departments say goodbye to:

  • Officials submitting information in application systems
  • A flood of emails (emails are replaced by an orderly workflow)
  • Unnecessary phone calls (up-to-date information is available within the platform)
  • Scanning, copying, transferring, and archiving paper forms and drawings
  • Office space and work-hours restrictions (municipal building departments and applicants can use Cloudpermit anywhere, anytime)

Cloudpermit is developed for, and with, municipal building departments

Cloudpermit is an end-to-end e-permitting solution that benefits all stakeholders – it allows municipal building departments and their customers to complete the entire permit life cycle in one digital space.  

As a cloud solution, users can access their permits when it’s convenient for them – anytime, anywhere. IT teams never have to worry about updating the system as all new product features are automatically updated in Cloudpermit.

Implementation is fast and easy

Municipal building departments can start using the system within weeks. Cloudpermit’s implementation is not costly or time-consuming like it can be with other software – municipal building departments can start using the system within weeks of signing the contract.

Our story

Cloudpermit is an international e-permitting company with roots in Finland. It was started in 2011 and launched in March of 2013  under the company name Evolta and the product name Evolve (Lupapiste in Finland) as a project with The Finnish Ministry of the Environment and a group of municipalities. Our goal was to create a new web service to make building permit processes faster and easier. In 2020, the company and software name were changed to Cloudpermit.

We wanted to meet the diverse needs of citizens, municipal authorities, architects and other construction business experts. We have succeeded as today more than 250 municipalities in North America and Europe - in Finland over 60% of municipalities - use Cloudpermit as their e-permitting software.
