goPost Customer Portal

The goPost Customer Portal is a fully web-based application that is tightly integrated to e-PlanREVIEW®. goPost supports the following ‘user roles’: 1) Applicants, 2) Intake Staff and 3) goPost Administrators.

goPost will allow Applicants to apply for permits, upload and submit plans for review, manage document versioning, access reviewer comment reports, and download deliverable packages (either reviewed plans that require corrections or approved plan sets). There is no cost to the applicants to create a goPost login account. Customers have full access to goPost online 24X7, including the ability to submit plans.

The goPost user interface will provide links for Applicants to download submittal guidelines in PDF format. Any files uploaded to goPost will pass through our Scout PDF inspector, which will reject incoming documents that do not meet best practices.

Applicants may create and manage many (unlimited) permit application projects, upload 2nd, 3rd, etc. submittals and receive automated emails when their project’s workflow status changes in EPR. Each user account requires a valid email address and password.

Intake staff at the City will utilize goPost to evaluate incoming submittals made by Applicants, including whether incoming documents meet the City’s submission criteria, and either accept or communicate deficiencies back to the applicant. When ready, City Intake staff will ‘accept’ goPost projects and push files over to EPR for processing. This online upload through the goPost portal reduces the plan review processing times by eliminating the need for physical trips to drop off and pick up plans as well as the storage associated with hard copies.

Scout PDF Inspector

In e-PlanSoft’s years of providing electronic plan review to City, County and State agencies, we have found that one of the immediate challenges when moving from the in-person paper process to uploading over the internet is pdf document reliability.

To better ensure that pdf’s meet submittal expectations, we provide the Scout PDF Inspector to analyze pdf documents during upload and reject them if they do not conform to best practices. Scout analyses documents and provides warnings for noncompliance in file size, file naming, page size, password protection and for any encountered pdf metadata issues.

By searching for and warning about these items, it notifies applicants right away if they need to correct a change and reupload, reducing the burden on Intake staff, speeding up the intake process and improving turnaround times.
