Understanding the ePlan Life Cycle
Software often serves one purpose and not much beyond that. It collect and uses data for a variety of reasons but beyond its specific purpose the data goes unused. At Avolve Software, we believe that is wasteful and inefficient which is why ProjectDox’sePlan life cycle improves both efficiency and safety. When a government or business uses ProjectDox, it is not only a valuable tool for improving process efficiency through electronic submission, review, and approval – its life cycle goes far beyond that. By using ProjectDox, your ePlan data is retained in the software to be used as a valuable asset. That data serves as an easy to access as-built record that improves field inspections and emergency response.
Our customers love our software products because they are not just a single-use tool. Our software has proven that it can efficiently manage the entire ePlan life cycle to maximize your investment. Say goodbye to outdated paper-based processes and partner with Avolve Software to improve online application and file submission, best-in-class ePlan review workflow processes, field inspection and first responder accessible ePlans, eForms, and field captured pre-planning building/site information.
It all begins in Online Application Submission (OAS). A citizen applicant registers and creates a secure account and then submits their permit and plan review applications. This is important because it reduces citizen frustration and complaints because it is so simple to register and access information. Further, information is stored so that additional applications are even more quick and easy to fill out in the future. Once submitted, the application goes to the appropriate personnel within a government for review. Individuals are able to rapidly review and make decisions about applications and then the applicant is notified as soon as a decision has been made. This is important because it eliminates frustrating and wasteful paper inefficiency, storage costs, and lost plans. It also improves communications between departments because all personnel involved in a project are notified when updates or changes are made. Finally, all of the information gathered during these processes is stored within ProjectDox and is then maintained as part of the location-specific as-built information which improves community safety in the event of an emergency. Avolve Software’s trusted ePlan review solution has more than proven itself in hundreds of jurisdictions and continues to be the first choice of governments that want a software that serves the full ePlan life cycle.
