•    Modernize its technology stack
•    Improve employee productivity 
•    Increase convenience for citizens

CityView Portal will provide a convenient and easy way for citizens, contractors and businesses to self-serve, while CityView EPR will deliver a paperless solution for plan reviews that saves time, money and the environment. CityView Mobile will help Billings reduce the number of phone calls to its office and eliminate duplicate data entry by equipping inspectors with the ability to manage and record inspections in the field from a mobile device.

CityView is thrilled to partner with Billings and looks forward to the positive impact its solutions will have on the City.
