How Electronic Plan Review is Revolutionizing Government Processes

April 3, 2023by e-PlanSoft™ Team

It is said that municipalities carry the stigma of being behind the rest of the industry when considering using digital deliverables. Digital deliverables are quickly becoming the industry standard. So it’s no surprise municipalities want to stay up to that standard and reflect the changes in the AEC industry. 

Here’s what planning officials need to know to change that perception and speed up their process.

Design and construction workflows have never evolved more quickly than in the past two decades. These changes affect everyone throughout the project lifecycle, including municipalities. With PDFs being the industry standard deliverable, cities need help to catch up because they need more technology infrastructure to fully support digital permit review. While construction projects continue, permits need to be issued and drawings reviewed. Eplan software provides this necessary support from a technology standpoint while enhancing real-time team collaboration.
