The Alberta town becomes CityView’s first BluePrince customer in Canada


CochraneApril 8, 2015: VICTORIA, BC: CityView is pleased to announce the Town of Cochrane, AB has selected BluePrince Permitting and Inspection software to replace the Town’s current manual permitting process, making it CityView’s first BluePrince customer in Canada.

The Town will be implementing BluePrince Permits & Inspections, Planning & Zoning, and Code Enforcement modules, along with GIS integration and the Contractor Bundle, a user friendly portal enabling contractors to monitor the progress of their permit applications, request inspections and pay fees online.

Since 2002, BluePrince has helped local governments across the United States (and now Canada) track and manage their permitting and community development activities and initiatives. With 90 customers in 25 states, BluePrince is a trusted partner in the local government community.

“We’re very pleased we could offer the Town a choice of two leading land management software solutions, CityView and BluePrince. BluePrince allows us to scale to smaller municipalities, with a package that meets their needs and budget, from a vendor who backs them with 33 years of industry expertise. Furthermore, we can offer a path into the CityView suite should the Town’s growth demand it. Cochrane joins a significant number of Alberta local governments using CityView products,” said Sean Higgins, Executive Vice President of CityView.

Cochrane is located just west of Calgary, and is the second largest town in Alberta. Being one of the fastest growing communities in Canada, Cochrane appreciated the fact that CityView was a company that can meet their needs both now and into the future.
