Let's take a closer look at how our services have helped grow the communities we've worked with.
Providing Next-Day Inspections and Streamlined Requests
When we first partnered with the Village of Hampshire, Illinois, their permitting and inspection process entirely relied on manual processes, including paper applications and in-person drop-offs. But the city's affordability, charm, and location meant continued growth, creating staffing challenges, delays, and ultimately complaints and resident dissatisfaction.
When their team partnered with SAFEbuilt, we provided a full-time team to handle their permitting and inspection requests. We also set them up with an electronic request platform to simplify their process.
With these changes implemented, the village went from experiencing scheduling delays and staffing inconsistencies to offering a sustainable digital solution for requests and next-day inspections within a two-hour window.
