PULASKI, Va. and RESTON, Va., Nov. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloudpermit's North American Headquarters sits in Virginia, and now so does a digital leader in its latest partnership with the Town of Pulaski.
"Our building department tried another permitting software before Cloudpermit but stopped using it because it was expensive and difficult to use," shared Thomas Hager, the Town of Pulaski's Building Official. "Many of the software options we looked into next were expensive and offered features we don't need, so we would have been charged for features we wouldn't even use. Cloudpermit cuts the fluff and focuses on what building departments need while being cost-effective and user-friendly."
Cloudpermit was built by working with building department staff to create a solution that delivers what they need for the building permit process to succeed online for government staff, builders, contractors, applicants, and all other parties involved.
"We appreciate that Cloudpermit treats its customers as independent local governments and involves them in designing the product," Hager explained. "This way, its customers benefit from a solution that was not only influenced by their peers but is configured to their specific needs. We're excited to collaborate with Cloudpermit when it expands to include more products in the future so we can benefit other governments and make our mark in this digital space."
Moving development processes online will improve timeliness and efficiency as the Town plans to build 250 apartments in the next two years. Once Cloudpermit launches for public use, its 8,000 residents can apply for building permits and communicate with their building department online with ease.
"I'm looking forward to the Town of Pulaski thriving with an online and easy-to-use building permit process," revealed Peter Rotenberg, Cloudpermit's Director of Sales Development, North America. "Cloudpermit has made a home in Virginia, and we look forward to partnering with more building departments across the state with this partnership."
