Online permits cut down errors

July 20, 2000
NEW YORK, NY — A new Web site for permit form management recently became available to members of the construction trades. The Internet service at www.permits.com enables users to obtain, file, and manage building permits and code compliance online.

Contractors filing a permit application receive proprietary software checks, ensuring that the permit application is filled out correctly. For example, the permit application cannot be filed if required fields are not filled in or digits are missing, which often count in rejection rates that run as high as 25%.

“Our error-reduction solution takes the building industry a step further than just permit submission and revolutionizes the way the construction industry does business,” said Stephen Rizzo, ceo and co-founder of permits.com. “Contractors who use our online permitting solution will save time and money giving them an advantage over their competition.”
