Community Development is a robust addition to your software ecosystem with a dynamic workflow view that guides you through each step of permitting, planning and zoning, inspections and code violations, and approvals.

The application empowers your organization to record and track every detail and transaction for all projects and properties, and for a cohesive experience, Community Development interfaces with General Ledger, Business License, Cash Receipting and Master Contacts.

For each project type you create, easily designate project details and process, such as fees, inspection times and forms, and approval requirements. With its built-in notification system, this powerful application caters holistically to your need for focused workflow management—automating more of what you do, like scheduling, creating inspection lists and notifying applicants, contractors and administrators of status updates.
