"BDS\FIS" - Building & Zoning Department Software Package
 
The complete package contains: Lotfile, Contractor, Permit, and Violations Modules. Let the "Lotfile" be the core of your community's property information. Track each property's static information with special usage, ownership, unlimited notes capability, and much more. Contractors can be tracked or registered. Local requirements, bonds, insurance, state licenses, and expiration dates will be checked for compliance throughout the permit process. As a Complete Permit tracking system, BDS\FIS takes you from "Application Entry", "Plan Review", "Approval", "Inspections", through "Certificate of Occupancy". Application, plan review, inspections, and complaints are Web enabled. Email inspection results to the contractor with a touch of a button. Property and contractor information will be automatically pulled into the permit process to eliminate unnecessary typing. The "Violations Module" tracks from the initial reporting of a complaint through printing of letters, inspections to citations, and resolution.

Lotfile
 Property File tracks each site per jurisdiction with plat name, full owner information, land use, acreage, tax abatement, zoning, flood zone, map
        number, and more. Flags properties that require special attention (Ex. Historical, Flood Zone, PUD). Track property history, variances, and
        more with the "Lotfile" notes feature.

Contractor
 Contractors are grouped by user defined type codes (Plumbing, Electrical, etc.). Printouts and mailings can be produced for all Contractors or a
       selected type code. Prints: Contractor License, lists, letters, envelopes, and reports.

Permit
 Unlimited Fee types with formulas for calculation and full accounting.
Unlimited permit types.
A Checks and Balance system insures appropriate steps have been taken in each phase of the permit process.
       Automatically increments Permit and Receipt numbers. Assign your own Project Name to each Application helping you distinguish
       between multiple Permits at a site.
Track all Inspection activity saving notes to Inspection history. Schedule Inspections and print Inspector Route Sheets or use our "Field
       Inspection Tools" on Laptops, PDA's, or Wireless Web devices.
