FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | Irvine, CA: e-PlanSoft™ is excited to congratulate the City of Rochester, Minnesota on signing contracts for the Ultimate Plan Review Solution, eplansoft REVIEW™ (EPR)! The jurisdiction has made the critical investment in the industry-leading, cloud based collaborative platform for electronic plan review (ePlan) with e-PlanSoft as their business partner to improve efficiency, transparency and economic growth in their community.

e-PlanSoft has extensive experience in developing, implementing and supporting Electronic Plan Review solutions at all levels of Civic Government as well as Architectural, Engineering, Constructions and Third-Party Plan Check Firms.

“Rochester was in need of finding a solution that integrated seamlessly with their Accela Citizen Access (ACA) that was already in place,” stated David Avila, National Director of Sales for e-PlanSoft. “Our solution offered them just that.  We incorporate our cloud-hosted deployment of EPR in partnership with Velosimo to implement a tight bi-directional integration between the Accela Citizen Access Portal and eplansoft REVIEW.”

ACA will remain the ‘source of truth’ for Rochester’s permitting project information, document management and document versioning, as well as for creating and managing plan review assignments and tasks. The streamlined connectivity the City will receive between Accela and EPR provides them and their constituents with the best of breed solution to improve staff efficiency and plan review turnaround time.

e-PlanSoft’s Scout PDF Inspector tool is also being deployed into ACA and the Accela back office to assist in evaluating incoming plans.  Scout can identify some known issues in the PDF files being submitted, prior to assignments being created.

Of notable importance is the strategic relationship with e-PlanSoft and Velosimo. e-PlanSoft is the exclusive reseller for Velosimo for Accela clients, which allows the companies to come together, leveraging shared strengths, to provide value added, custom solutions for end users.
