Managing a Growing Village – The Village of Addison selects CityView
October 17, 2018

To meet the formidable challenge of managing a growing village, the Village of Addison decided to replace all their current systems with a best of breed community development solution that would integrate tightly with their other systems.

Key outcomes that they were looking for were maintaining and improving customer service levels; ensuring that information was collected just once; and, robust workflows that meant things weren’t falling through the cracks.

Addison joined a number of Illinois local governments in selecting CityView as their community development platform. CityView will:
  • Allow constituents to self-serve with the CityView Portal so that they can access their information, make payments and interact with the Village on their own schedule
  • Increase transparency and departmental sharing of information so that information is easy to find when it’s needed.
  • Eliminate double duty by capturing building and code enforcement data in the field using CityView Mobile so that it doesn’t need to be re-entered at the Village offices.
They will also implement a number of other CityView products like the CityView Microsoft Word Add-in and CityView’s Electronic Plans Review. CityView will integrate with their other systems to streamline their processes throughout.
