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.
