Software Solution Designed to Reduce Red Tape in Government Licenses and Permits

PEORIA, IL – DevBright, Inc. announced the launch of GovPermit, an ePermitting tool that enables local government to be more accessible to business owners by bringing the traditional paper-based license and permitting process to a streamlined, easy-to-use online process that is effortless for businesses and stressless for city officials.

“GovPermit is innovative technology that has been developed in response to the Startup In A Day Pledge through the Small Business Administration (SBA),” said Matt Scachette, President and Co-Founder of DevBright.

“Many cities have recognized the need to simplify the licensing and permitting process so that entrepreneurs can dedicate their time to developing innovative products and services, creating jobs and growing local communities – rather than navigating red tape.  We are delighted that GovPermit will support small business development across the United States.”

GovPermit automates the paper-based licensing and permitting process by bringing the various forms into a single, secure online system with multi-lingual capabilities that can be accessed from any Internet-enabled device.  By requesting business information and asking simple questions, GovPermit identifies and completes the applicable forms with the information provided – including an eSignature.  A business owner no longer has to navigate the complex multi-departmental process, provide redundant information or fill out forms by hand.  City Hall can now be open for business 24/7 with city staffers’ productivity being improved by automating workflows, reducing unnecessary calls and eliminating the need to decipher handwriting and data-entry.

“The DevBright team has over 20 years of software development experience and has served clients across various industries.  By and large, GovPermit is the perfect illustration of our software development expertise,” said David Sendelbach, Director of Development and Co-Founder of DevBright.

According to the Small Business Administration, more than a half a million small business are started each year with 64% of net-new private sectors jobs.  GovPermit is the premier ePermitting tool that allows cities to interact with businesses so that they can get to work faster in the community.  GovPermit will be rolled out across the United State to progressive municipalities that are committed to improving the citizen experience.  The software is available for cities to purchase through an annual license.  Simple, easy and intuitive technology has become an expectation and GovPermit allows cities to deliver a better permitting experience to complement the current process.
