The Town of East Granby, Connecticut, chose community development software, Cloudpermit, to bring its building permit process and inspections online.
“We researched different software options, and it became clear that not all software can be configured to meet the needs of a small town,” shared Mark Goderre, Building Official for the Town of East Granby. “Cloudpermit was an excellent choice for us because it was built for any population size and offers an unlimited user license so we can have as many users enjoying the online system as we need.”
East Granby’s 5,214 residents will benefit from a simplified building permit process with remote access to their information and applications – anytime, anywhere. Citizens can schedule and check the status of their building inspections online when the software is explored later this year.
“Cloudpermit provides a QR code for each building permit which will be a huge asset for our staff,” Goderre said. “I will not need to bring files with me to a job site and can instead, access everything I need by scanning the QR code. Soon, our building inspections can be completed in the field with all the relevant information at our inspectors’ fingertips.”
The online software will simplify how East Granby’s Building Department processes building permits. It will also save time for citizens, builders, and all other involved parties by eliminating the need to travel to the government office to complete applications.
“We are looking forward to the Town of East Granby benefiting from an online way of working with 24/7 access to our support portal,” said Jarkko Turtiainen, Cloudpermit’s Senior Vice President. “Our partnership with this leader in Connecticut will show other small towns that an online and easy building permit process is possible.”
