EDMONTON — Edmonton-based Computronix has announce that the City of Ottawa has selected its Posse LMS (Land Management System) software to help automate the city’s planning, permitting, licensing and business inspection systems.
The software will be used by Ottawa’s Planning, Infrastructure and Economic Development Department, stated a Sept. 28 release. Phase one will include building code services, to be followed by planning services including development review; right of way, heritage and urban design services; and the Committee of Adjustment.
The new software will be used to help the city streamline the issuance of over 100 permit and license types, increasing public access via a bilingual resident services portal and an integrated mobile application for inspectors to enhance efficiencies in the field, the release noted.
“The City of Ottawa looks forward to implementing the Posse LMS system to facilitate convenient, accessible land management services for our burgeoning building community,” said John Buck, acting chief building official for the City of Ottawa, in the statement. “Following our exhaustive evaluation of the available solutions in the marketplace, we are confident that our selection of Posse LMS will result in a transformative land management system delivering easy-to-use planning, permitting, licensing and inspection services; yielding faster turnaround times and superior service outcomes for residents and public servants alike.”
Other jurisdictions using Posse include the regional municipalities of Durham, Halton and Halifax; the cities of Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Surrey and Vancouver; the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Newfoundland and Labrador; and the Yukon Territory.
