View permit data, messages and download attachments like plans in the field. Cancel inspections and Re-Schedule them directly from the iPad. Email your comments along with images directly to the client right from the iPad.

PermitTrax comes with our standard reports as well as our proprietary Data Extractor. Build a report with the data you want and filtered. Export the data directly as an Excel Spreadsheet or view them on the GIS Map. Once configured, go back often to run the data extractor to get the data you need. Monthly or Annual reports are now easy to run at the touch of a button.

All of these are 24/7 and accessible to the citizen. Utilizing our Active Permits Map, citizens can see where the work is being done on a map. Cut down on public records requests by allowing the permit information to be public and accessable.
