Municipal Software Corporation, a leading developer of local government business process automation software and a wholly owned subsidiary of Municipal Solutions Group, Inc. has announced that the Village of Niles, IL has purchased CityView® to automate their permits and licensing functions. The project is valued at about $112,188 US.
The comprehensive and integrated system will provide the City with the ability to automate its Construction Permitting, Contractor Licensing and Inspections, as well as Business Licenses. The Village will integrate their system with their ESRI mapping data and hopes to use the Web capabilities of CityView 8.NET to offer services over the Web in the future.
One of the most important features the Village is implementing is a built in CityView scheduler that will allow clerks and contractors to schedule inspections in any inspector’s next available time slot. The function will return all the “open” times for an inspector for a given day and allow the clerk and the contractor to select the best fit!
The Village will be using MS SQL Server as its CityView database. The Village of Niles is located just northwest of Chicago and it was incorporated in 1850. The Village currently has a population of about 30,000.
