Electronic Plan Review

Streamline the 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, making the plan review process time consuming and difficult to manage. With OnBase’s Electronic Plan Review solution, the ePlan submission, review and certification process is automated – speeding up community development and infrastructure initiatives.

By using OnBase, government agencies can:

  •     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

With the Electronic Plan Review solution, planning and public works staff import plans and supporting documents directly into OnBase through a website portal. Once imported, OnBase automatically organizes plan sets and documents to your organization’s standards and routes them to appropriate reviewers for simultaneous approvals.

Once in OnBase, reviewers use the solution to create and track changes and comments. OnBase’s side-by-side comparison tool overlays the newest plan revision with any previous version, allowing reviewers to see any and all changes that were made or need to occur. OnBase presents changes in a convenient, single-screen view that includes a collaboration pane for real-time access to comments, improving collaboration among reviewers. Once the review process is complete, the Electronic Plan Review solution allows users to approve plans by applying a stamp, seal and signature.

OnBase helps your organization meet deadlines by eliminating paper-based tasks. You electronically automate plan routing and tracking, speeding up the review process and increasing transparency into your community development and infrastructure projects.
