Permit Central Solution
Millions of paper and pdf online road and right-of-way permit applications are received by municipalities every year across North America, and the processing times, conflict checks, email and payment reconciliation costs are outstanding. There had to be a better way!
To start with, our approach was defined with 10 municipalities in a year-long provincially funded project, that leveraged our years of road permitting and road information management expertise.
Permit Central is an entirely digital road-permitting service, that supports processing permits in 10-20% of the time previously taken, with little to no typing, filing, or payment reconciliation.
Digital Records System for Authorities & Applicants– Authorities and applicants can quickly access their applications and all associated document uploads, communication logs, change logs, payment receipts and more.
Common or Custom Application Forms– In Ontario, Canada, the service supports common application forms developed and maintained by Ontario road authorities. Custom forms are also supported.
Municipal511 Integration– Applicants are able to view road closures, construction, truck routes, and cautions as they map their route, allowing them to adjust their plans and timing to work around known road use conflicts. Approved permit content can flow directly to the travel and project views in the Municipal511.ca public site.
Local and Regional Approaches– Applicants can apply to multiple authorities at once in cases where a plan or route involves multiple jurisdictions. For reviewers, reaching out to other road authorities for consultation takes only a single click.
Highly Efficient– Authorities can process permits with little-to-no typing, printing or filing. Applicants are kept informed of status changes automatically.
