This web-based electronic plan review solution provides a collaborative, simultaneous review process that allows multiple users to perform the review concurrently, making the review process faster and more accurate.
EPR integrates with multiple permitting systems to support an end to end paperless permit application and approval process. Paperless plan check means no more shipping, storage, or printing costs, for public agencies or their constituents.

The standard comments library lets users quickly insert commonly used codes, comments, and instructions for the applicant to evaluate. Custom corrections reports for the applicant are created on the fly as reviewers add comments streamlining the plan review process, and reduce plan check turnaround time.
