PermitCity is a web-based permitting application which is delivered as either a network-aware appliance device or as a hosted ASP (application service provider) solution.

Platforms, operating systems, relational database management systems:

  • Microsoft Server 2003 and 2008, Solaris or Linux
  • Database: Microsoft SQL Server 2005, 2008 or 2008 R2 for the database, Postgres
  • Hardware: Dell, HP, and IBM Intel-based Servers

Access to PermitCity is defined by roles. These roles are coupled with workflow processes as well as various ‘permissions’, all of which are configurable through built-in administrative tools.  A user must be assigned the appropriate role in order to carry out tasks within PermitCity.

Additionally, PermitSoft keeps an audit trail of access to the records using a combination of user identification on the record level, as well as web server logs which can determine who was accessing which pages.
