Data Accuracy and Quality Assurance with the Right SoftwareJanuary 30, 2024
In today’s data-driven world, it’s crucial to ensure that information is accurate. Reliable data plays a pivotal role in informed decision-making and government success.
The right software can:
- Ensure that governments stay informed of what’s going on in their communities
- Allow officials to accurately keep track of ongoing and past projects with ease
- Enhance precision and minimize errors
- Keep strong records
Cloudpermit offers a unified platform so governments can efficiently manage all aspects of community development in one place. In this article, we’ll explore the role our software plays in ensuring data accuracy and quality assurance.
Strong Record Keeping
Our software keeps all building permitting, inspections, business licensing, planning & zoning, and code enforcement information all in the same place. Staff can import past permits and projects into the same software. This means that not only is current information available, but past information is easily accessible too.
Interactive GIS Mapping
Governments can visually understand community patterns to better serve their community and predict trends with interactive GIS mapping. This allows them to be proactive and accurate, not just reactive in their approach. Interactive GIS-integrated maps also give staff easy access to property information in one view. They can find locations, find layers like heritages areas or flooding maps, and plan effective inspector routes.
Government teams can upload multiple photos from site visits and inspections to Cloudpermit. This allows other staff to stay up to date with a property or project, and to track project progress.
Cloudpermit allows departments to view all relevant property information in one view. Staff can view a property on a map along with its property owners, past and ongoing permits, and past and ongoing violations and cases. This ensures building and code enforcement departments can view relevant information from the other departments with great efficiency. This guarantees better accuracy and quality assurance as departments have the complete picture from a property.
It is easier to keep track of all inspection information when it is stored in the same place. Inspectors can perform inspections in the field with any mobile device. They can add notes, attach photos, and pass or fail an inspection on their phone or tablet. All stakeholders are notified when the status of an inspection changes to keep everyone informed and up to date with accurate information.
Cloudpermit simplifies collaboration for governments by allowing seamless communication within departments, across various stakeholders such as builders, designers, applicants, and citizens. All parties can access and view project details simultaneously and send time-stamped messages within the software. Staff can circulate applications to other stakeholders, add comments, and share ideas within the software without using any paper files. This reduces the potential for information to get lost or misunderstood since everything is accessible online.
Online communication ensures accountability and can lead to fewer miscommunications. Staff members can easily access past and ongoing conversations with applicants to swiftly grasp project details. Cloud communication removes the reliance on emails and phone calls which minimizes the risk of information loss, particularly during staff turnovers. By moving communication online, information can be tracked and measured to ensure high-quality data.
Cloudpermit makes reporting easy for organizations and governments. Departments can quickly and easily make and send reports with just a few clicks. This saves significant time collecting and organizing data. Instead, staff can create an accurate report and pull whatever information they need with ease.
