Irvine, CA – August 11, 2016 – e-PlanSoft™, the provider of Online Electronic Plan Review solutions, has announced that Ventura County, CA is implementing e-PlanCheck® (EPC) integrated with the Accela Civic Platform to provide a complete electronic plan review solution. The implementation will add e-PlanSoft’s web-based plan review product, e-PlanCheck, to the County’s current Accela system improving the ways in which the County can serve its citizens. Ventura County’s Building and Planning Department and its Plan Check Applicants will benefit greatly from the integration of EPC by eliminating the cost to print, ship and store traditional paper plans. This end to end solution enables community members to apply for building permits and upload plan sets online, and allow the County to perform plan reviews without printing a sheet of paper.
Ventura County worked with Accela to set up a one-stop shop for business licensing, permitting, and city safety, which has streamlined and automated workflow between departments. The platform has empowered city workers, businesses and citizens to engage with each other more efficiently by using an expanded set of web-based and mobile application services. By offering the public online access to the permitting process via VC Citizen Access, the County’s public facing portal, members of the public can save time with the ability to search and review permit information and permit applicants, upload and download documents, make comments, and check processing status.
e-PlanCheck integrated with the Accela Civic Platform offers Ventura County a complete permitting and plan review solution with features that go above and beyond a typical markup review tool. These include one-click Correction Reports, a Searchable Standard Comments Library, Overlay and Side-by-Side Comparison Tools, support for Concurrent Reviews, and much more. e-PlanSoft™ and Accela together provide a powerful web-based concurrent plan review solution that enables citizens to conveniently apply for building permits and plan checks online from the comfort of their own home or office, 24-hours-a-day / 7-days-a-week. “
