Streamline the electronic/digital plan review process for faster government infrastructure and community development

The process of managing plan set submissions can often involve paper plan sets that are large and require multiple copies. It can be time-consuming and difficult to manage. With OnBase’s Digital Plan Review solution, the plan submission and review and certification process are automated – speeding up community development and infrastructure initiatives.

By using OnBase, government agencies:

  • Submit plans electronically for faster review and approval
  • Collaborate in real time with automated comment tracking and reviews
  • Meet mandated deadlines while reducing paper across the enterprise

OnBase Digital Plan Review software solution organizes and routes documents automatically

With an OnBase document management plan review solution for government, planning and public works staff import plans and supporting documents directly into OnBase through a website portal. OnBase document management review automatically organizes plan sets and documents and routes them to appropriate reviewers for approval.

Reviewers use the digital plan review solution to create and track changes and comments. A side-by-side comparison tool makes it easy for reviewers to see any and all changes that were made or need to occur. A single-screen view and real-time access to comments improves collaboration among reviewers. Once the review process is complete, the ePlan solution allows users to approve plans by applying a stamp, seal, and signature.
