Check out Viva Civic Permitting Software, the latest version of our software


PermitCity harnesses the power of GIS via a seamless bi-directional integration with ESRI ArcGIS. This integration allows PermitCity users to view a wide range of parcel information including: project applications, permits issued, code enforcement cases, as well as business and occupancy information. After selecting a parcel, users can effortlessly start projects, issue project notices to nearby parcels, check the compatibilities of proposed uses as well as set up the routing for daily inspections.

With PermitCity GIS, difficult tasks like keeping track of parcel histories, lot tie and splitting and address consistency, are made easier.
