Local governments that use Infor’s Public Sector CDR software for managing development and regulatory processes can now give their site inspectors a mobile app for doing their work.
The company said Thursday its Field Inspector CDR for Android gives permit, license and code enforcement inspectors access to the Infor Public Sector CDR modules so they can review, update and assess application data from anywhere.
Infor said in a release the app is highly configurable. It relies on user profiles to match the content that is displayed to the specific user’s job functions. For example,it gives different information for a building supervisor than for a code enforcement inspector. Organizations are also able to customize the out-of-the-box functionality and page layouts.
The company said the Metro Vancouver regional district is a Public Sector CDR customer. The district works with 22 area municipalities a First Nation to deliver drinking water, wastewater treatment and solid waste management, as well as manages regional parks.
The app can use both Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning System (GPS) information so users can find information on a map and to search for records within a certain distance of the mobile device’s location.
“For years licensing, permitting and code enforcement has been relegated to an on-premise activity, which for most agencies, is a counter-intuitive practice,” Kevin Curry, Infor’s senior vice-president for the Public Sector software. “This application equips users with access to critical information, regardless of location or platform, helping to ensure the most accurate data is recorded in real-time.”
