Cloudpermit empowers local communities with optimized building permit processes

Cloudpermit improves building permit processes for local government building departments with our leading, cloud-based software.

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

Our commitment to developing the best e-permitting software for building departments, builders, contractors, designers, and applicants has led us to where we are today – working with close to 500 local governments with small, medium, and large populations.  

How? We do building permits and we do them well. Our software is simple, easy-to-use, and accessible for any-sized community.  

Ten years ago, we noticed a gap in e-permitting solutions. Most solutions weren’t accessible to small or medium-sized communities and only worked well for internal use or external use, but not for both.  

So, we created a cost-effective and accessible solution for any-sized community that was user-friendly for all parties involved in building permit processes.  

We don’t want the number of permits, how many staff work in the building department, or any hesitation about technology to be a deterrent to going digital – we believe all building departments, builders, contractors, designers, and applicants can benefit from the ease of working online with our software.

Cloudpermit was made for, and built with, local government building departments, because we’ve always listened, and sought out, feedback on user needs, and are committed to non-stop learning.  

Not only do we make the switch to e-permitting as fast, easy, and simple as possible (we implement within weeks), our software is simple and easy to use once it’s up and running.  

Building departments don’t need to worry about its elderly population or less technologically-savvy residents having trouble with our software because we keep it simple. Check it out for yourself.    

We’re excited to keep improving our software to serve you better and can’t wait to grow our community even more.
