When citizens set out to start a business or home improvement project, they’re confronted with complex requirements from the City: multiple permits from different departments – each with their own terminology and procedures. Tradespeople and permit expeditors know how to navigate this processes, but laypersons are often left behind: their lack of experience can lead to delays and missteps, and even penalties and fines. OpenCounter uses a sophisticated rules engine to calculate permit requirements as applicants supply their project details. This allows citizens to scope their projects with confidence, and allows staff to increase efficiency on intake.
