    Not sure about that, larger departments and software yes - used several myself..... small departments not sure if the permitting and inspection software would pay for itself....

    We almost fit your criteria. 2 inspectors. 18000+ people. We use Mygov. It functions on tablets and phones fairly well. We have gone paperless from a records perspective with it.

    I think Avolve/ProjectDox prices itself based on the size of the jurisdiction so they may be an option. I haven't used it put they have pitched us and I liked it. We aren't much bigger in population than you, but we are mostly a business district.

    Can you share some thoughts on how much you spent on this?

    I am in a jurisdiction that has not set aside any funds

    Initial set up was a couple thousand dollars. It's a subscription base, so the ongoing costs are billed month to month. It's cloud based, so you can log in anywhere you have a web browser and an internet connection. Their up-time has been great in the 7 years we've been using them and they actually pro-rate any downtime they have. It's only happened once for less than 5 minutes for us.
