Government software from CityView, a division of Harris Computer Systems
CityView offers comprehensive out-of-the-box software for community development and municipal land management. From land use planning to permitting, code enforcement and licensing, CityView facilitates a paperless process that shortens permit and case turnaround, eliminates redundant work, and increases productivity.
Founded over 30 years ago by Local Government for Local Government, CityView is proven to drive efficiency and help communities grow.
CityView is a government management software. This solution has multiple applications for managing property information, permits, code enforcement, licensing, and more.
The payback of using CityView has been big for Grove City. We average 3000 commercial and residential permits and over 8000 inspections a year and we’re able to do this with 3 permit clerks and 4 building inspectors. Nearly 60 percent of our inspections are now scheduled online so we had almost 4000 fewer inspections-related phone calls in 2009. Our contractors love that they get their inspection results by email as soon as the inspection is done. We’ve seen a reduction in the number of call-backs and cancelled inspections because they can now be scheduled after we close for the day. It used to take us several weeks to get all the information together for annual state reports but now we’re able to generate those same reports and have them in the mail in minutes. CityView has dramatically improved the way we do business and allows us to increase the level of service that we provide to our citizens. That’s why we even named a street after the software.
Staff are using CityView’s capabilities to power a level of business intelligence and efficiency that has never existed before within the plan and permit review department.
