BEST PRACTICES USE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY TO SUPPORT BUILDING DEPARTMENTS
  • INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
  • Where necessary re-engineer building department before applying I.T. to program
  • Phase in I.T. – On-line permit processing, plans submission tracking, IVR, mobile field inspections, and (coming soon) online plans reviews
