Your community is growing and citizens and businesses desire to be more connected than ever. With the information era well underway, a transparent push and pull of communication is a requirement, not a request. Citizens want to be able to simply and seamlessly file for permits and monitor status. Teachers, coaches and local citizens want to be able to schedule an event in their gym or rec hall while keeping the community informed. To keep up with this two-way conversation, you need connected tools that enable seamless engagement to keep your community connected.
Brightly’s community development and event solutions help you to:
- Streamline communications for more efficient and effective sharing of information
- Improve community experience through consistent and transparent engagement
- Simplify historically time-consuming tasks like scheduling an event, requesting a permit or applying for a business license
Community Engagement for connected communities
A simpler, more efficient way to govern
Provide a better experience for your citizens, businesses and staff. SmartGov lets you manage permitting, planning, licensing, inspections and code enforcement in one centralized system.
Give power to the people
Let your citizens submit and track permit applications, pay online and review inspection results in real time. This transparency makes for happier residents – and it builds more trust too.
Plan and zone with efficiency
Organize and manage resources for planning applications on one platform, you’ll have access to up-to-date zoning and property data and reports. And you can collaborate across departments or even with applicants.
Process applications faster
SmartGov gives you a configurable, web-based platform (or mobile app) that you can use to automate and streamline permits, inspections, business license applications and approval process flows.
Removing hassle from code enforcement
Automate case actions from the office or from the field with the SmartGov mobile app. And print or email notices from anywhere to ensure compliance and improve public safety.
Get more value from your reports
Manage permit lifecycle, business license and enforcement cases. Create reports in real time or on interval schedules to help justify funding and better plan for the future.
Schedule, organize and promote events
Events have a lot of moving pieces – and they can crash into each other if not properly managed. Event Manager makes it easier to schedule, organize, promote and recover costs from events and facility rentals.
Gain visibility over event requests
Event Manager delivers tools on a single cloud-based platform. So you and your team will manage all public and private event requests, location availability and event activity in one location, together.
Build reports based on feedback
Customize surveys and gather feedback from the people using your facilities. Build templates and aggregate your data over time from repeated surveys to analyze and report your findings.
Simplify invoicing and payment
Take complexity out of sending invoices and tracking down payments. Event Manager gives you the tools to create, send and track invoices quickly and efficiently. And it lays the foundation for online payments.
Streamline event approval
Easily customize how certain event requests get approved and ensure event satisfaction with better communication, coordination and collaboration between service providers.
Make requests easier for everyone
Give people in your community a portal they can use to submit and manage their event requests for facilities.
