Planning and Zoning

To promote well-designed, livable, and prosperous communities, planners must combine strategic vision with practical approaches to today's development realities. They work closely with citizens and community leaders to build consensus on short and long range plans. Ensuring that new development projects reflect and adhere to those longer term plans is a key planning objective.

Workflows Automate Business Processes

What comprises a business process? A business process is typically a sequence of interrelated activities completed by individuals or systems inside and even outside the organization. ProjectDox automates these activities and the information flow throughout the customer's business process. We call these `workflows' and they represent the heartbeat of the ProjectDox system. ProjectDox comes with an advanced set of tools ? eForms, project templates, a workflow designer, checklists, an advanced folder structure, and others ? that are pre-configured and comprise our Best-in-Class workflows.
