The Integrated Property System, also known as IPS, is an innovative suite of integrated applications that consolidates property data from every department within a municipality into a shared, centralized database. This provides efficient and easy access for all authorized users, while providing ample security restrictions to tailor the system to your business needs.
Planning & Zoning
Fire & Periodic Inspections
Comprehensive Parcel History
Resident Web Portal
Active Directory Integration
Granular Security Controls
Our mobile Android tablet app is designed with the individual inspector in mind for portability, efficiency, and ease of use. It synchronizes seamlessly with the data from IPS to provide real-time access to all the features needed to perform inspection duties in the field.
View upcoming inspections to determine the inspector’s workload or schedule periodic inspections directly from the field. Individual days can be selected to display specific times and locations of inspections, making route planning a breeze. Mapping feature assists the inspector to identify unclear addresses and obtain directions from their current location.
View all parcel information contained in IPS — Search by address, tax map number, or owner and business names. Parcel attributes can be displayed and contact information directly updated while on location. The ability to search parcels in the field helps avoid duplicate cases.
Additional record information such as violations, actions, checklists, and notes can be added to records or updated as needed. Attachments can easily be captured directly from the tablet’s on-board camera and uploaded to the central IPS database. Records can be identified via the Record Number search option.
All inspections, their respective records, and parcel data are cached locally on the tablet. Should cellular connection be lost at any time during the inspection, the app will still function and any changes made will automatically sync when service returns.
Our Web Portal for IPS is an online Constituent Service Request System that allows residents to log requests and the municipality to track related actions and final resolution. This system provides direct integration to our IPS software.
