As we’re sure you know, keeping up with everything going on in your department sometimes seems impossible for planners. Sticky notes, emails, public hearings – at some point, without proper controls, there will be something to fall through a crack somewhere.
Unless of course you are leveraging a unified solution that communicates between teams, departments, and constituents (architects, engineers, applicants, etc.). Doing this seems like something from the future, but we can assure you it exists today and thousands of teams are leveraging it daily in the cloud.
Utilizing a cloud-based solution like GovSense gives you a major advantage over sticky notes, informal communication and paper-based automation.
By adopting the cloud, you are able to provide a transparent experience for all departments and constituents alike. For example, collaboration has never been easier with GovSense’s social plug-in. Tag employees, colleagues and more using familiar social media features right from the project or plan review screens.
Another great feature of cloud-based software is resource allocation to track hard and soft commitments to tasks across an entire project. By leveraging GovSense’s real-time dashboards, you can gain complete visibility into all activities going on in the system.
Harnessing the power of Esri’s ArcGIS Online + GovSense, you can combine two powerful cloud-based platforms to marry data for powerful storyboards, presentations and visual greatness. GovSense gives a 360-degree view of projects, constituents and locations. So with a few clicks, you can understand exactly where the entire team is and where all of the projects are in progress.
