Burnham and Enliven Partnership Means Innovation in Municipal Permitting
East Lansing, Michigan based Enliven Software and Chicago based Burnham Nationwide announce a partnership that will bring innovation and simplicity to government permitting and licensing. Their combined efforts have yielded an innovative eGovernment solution titled SimplyPermits. SimplyPermits is a super simple, electronic application, workflow and payment process for municipal permitting and licensing.
Like the business world, government is being forced to find ways to substantially simplify their processes and reduce their costs. Software as a Service (SaaS) is fast becoming the preferred alternative and SimplyPermits allows governments to reduce their costs with almost no out of pocket recurring fees. SimplyPermits allows constituents and contractors to file applications for permits and licenses 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It significantly streamlines the process by enabling electronic application, review, payment and issuance.
"In many industries, SaaS is proving to be a cost effective, practical, reliable replacement for cumbersome, expensive legacy processes. Our governmental clients are very interested in ways to simplify and reduce costs," said Burnham President Brett Meyer. "We pride ourselves on being leaders in innovation. Enliven’s technology allows us to be the first to bring cloud computing to governmental permitting and licensing."
"Combining our platform technology with Burnham’s industry expertise and national network provides a unique opportunity for innovation in the municipal permitting market," Enliven CEO Bunmi Akinyemiju said. "Enliven provides the technology and support while Burnham provides the marketing, sales and implementation. The power of the network business model is highly evident here."
