Many government agencies are looking to switch from an old permitting or code enforcement software system to web-based best-in-class systems like BasicGov.
Recently BasicGov has converted several local government agencies that were using Blackbear Systems or PTWIN32.
The processes involved in conversion follow these steps:
- Identifying the types of permits (and/ or code complaints) and forms that are used
- Document the inspection sheets and data formats
- Analyzing the permit (and/ or code) fields and the database they are stored in
- Updating the parcel information (if the data is associated to parcel #)
- Associating the contractor information and licenses
- Training and implementation
- Continued customer support
Web-based BasicGov System Benefits
- No capital costs
- Free upgrades
- No maintenance fees
- Fast implementation (weeks not months)
- Reduced training time
- Fast productivity ROI

With hurricane season approaching now is the time to learn how web-based software can help local government agencies better manage in the aftermath of a hurricane or other natural disasters.
With web-based software not only will cities’ important data be protected but community development departments can get back up and running immediately from any location with only a computer and Internet connection.
For example, Mississippi cities Ocean Springs and City of Gautier are both using BasicGov. The City of Ocean Springs’ Community Development & Planning Department saw a significant increase in permits and inspections volume as a result of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. To keep up with the demand they turned to software and implemented BasicGov Permits & Inspections. In less than two months the Building Clerks were up and running on the new system. The web-based software, accessible by multi-departments, allowed the entire department to move to laptops for more mobility in the office or out in the field. Click here to read more
