Powys enhances Planning and Building Control services with new digital platform
- Published: 18 October 2017
Powys County Council will roll out a suite of digital services from Idox in an effort to streamline its Planning and Building Control functions.
The implementation, incorporating Idox’s proven back-end software Uniform, will be supported by Enterprise – an automated workflow and performance management solution that enables council officers to monitor and balance staff workload – and EDMS, an integrated document management solution. Together, these solutions will provide a robust platform designed to increase efficiencies.
As Idox’s software facilitates seamless integration, all the Council’s Planning and Building Control activities can be managed via the same system, with the ability to accommodate dual language in English and Welsh through connections with external systems.
The Council will also take advantage of the Planning DC application – part of Idox’s wider suite of role-based apps – which will equip Planning Officers with the ability to work on-the-move, and carry out inspections and site visits even when offline.
