DigEplan, a global leader in cloud-based, fully integrated electronic plan review, and the State of Oregon have created an integrated mark-up workflow that is embedded in Accela workflows. This reduces planning and permitting administration, ensuring faster issuance of permits for Oregon cities and municipalities.

Purpose-built for government permitting, DigEplan is accessed from within the Accela Civic Platform, creating a streamlined process removing the need for redundant secondary workflows. With rapid deployment, DigEplan for Oregon jurisdictions is supported by expert implementation partner TruePoint Solutions with an extensive package to ensure agencies quickly realize a return-on-investment. 

Oregon agencies including Jackson County, City of Talent and City of St. Helens have already chosen DigEplan for Accela, joining a growing community of more than 100 cities, counties, and municipalities. “During the pandemic, there has been an increase in electronic plans being submitted online and reviewed electronically. Mark-up was happening outside of Accela, so we introduced some enhanced options, including DigEplan for our jurisdictions to integrate plan review as part of their Accela workflows,” explained Celina Patterson, Program Manager of the Oregon ePermitting Program

Agencies will benefit from DigEplan’s easy-to-use interface and enhanced features. These include applicant support for submission standards, removing time-consuming submission administration, and digital projects that provide corrections and comments in real-time, so applicants can address these throughout the review cycle.

“DigEplan’s solution integrated to the Accela platform enables agencies to modernize, scale, and create advanced efficiencies,” said Christy Hunt, President – North American Markets, DigEplan. “We are excited to be working with the State of Oregon, to provide a choice to cities and counties to enhance their permitting process by streamlining plan review and removing the unnecessary administration.”

Jurisdictions in Oregon, who have signed up for the ePermitting System Program, should reach out to their contact at the State to learn more about financial assistance options available if you implement DigEplan.

Widely used in the USA, DigEplan customers span over 100 counties, municipalities, and cities across five countries.
