Buncombe County, North Carolina Improves Plan Review Process to Support Community Growth with e-PlanREVIEW® - e-PlanSoft


Irvine, CA—May 12, 2021: e-PlanSoft™, a leading provider of electronic plan review software today announced the successful implementation of e-PlanREVIEW® (EPR) at Buncombe County, North Carolina.

The move to adopt EPR to perform all plan reviews across the County aligns with four of the County’s long-range strategic initiatives to:
1. Achieve sustainability by transitioning to a paperless process;
2. Improve the customer experience and convenience to customers;
3. Reduce plan review turnaround time; and
4. Provide a transparent process to constituents during the development process.

EPR stood out as the ideal solution for Buncombe County, as it accommodates all of their requirements and objectives. The cloud-based solution virtually eliminates the need for paper plans, which reduces the County’s carbon footprint, and the need for face-to-face interaction or physically passing around paper plans among reviewers. EPR also equips all project participants to collaborate remotely, in real-time and drastically reduces the turnaround time for plan reviews. In light of social distancing recommendations, the solution provides an even greater benefit to keep projects progressing and on track to complete faster.

EPR with Velosimo no-code connectors seamlessly integrates with the County’s Accela Civic Platform to further improve services and efficiency by eliminating redundant data entry and manual processes. The solution also allows participants to upload, access, and download all documents via internet browser at any time during user-defined hours, from any device with a secure internet connection.

“It’s gratifying to provide this leading-edge solution to Buncombe County to meet their current objectives, and also provide additional efficiencies that will serve them well now and into the future,” stated Kalib Drake, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at e-PlanSoft. “The seamless integration with their Accela Civic Platform will reduce the steps required, eliminate redundancies in their workflow, and ultimately improve the turnaround time for their projects.”

“Buncombe County is experiencing significant growth, which translates to record high numbers of construction projects, both for homes and businesses. They’ve continually taken steps to provide even better service, and e-PlanREVIEW is a strong asset toward their goals, in the form of faster plan review turnaround, a streamlined workflow, and remote collaboration to keep their community and staff safe and healthy,” said Debra Schmitt, Director of Technical Operations and Project Management.
