5 Reasons to Automate Processes

According to thesaurus.com, the opposite of automate is humanize. And a like word is robotize. When thinking about automating processes, I don’t really think humans vs. robots but more along the lines of streamlining or integrating or simplifying.

There are many reasons to automate. FastTrackGov® (FTG) is a fully automated software solution for state and local governments. Which means what? It means one centralized database, improved staff efficiency, processing citizen requests faster, and less paperwork. It also means you can connect with your citizens anytime, anywhere, day or night. They are able to complete online applications for licenses and permits, submit requests and renewals, schedule inspections, and more, with the click of a button (and without ever having to leave home).

Here are five reasons to check out the automated FTG community development product line:

  1. Versatility – Real-time access to all information on each permit application AND from any location in the field from a web-enabled device.
  2. Improved communication – Being able to easily communicate with your citizens is so important. They will appreciate the convenience of online services.
  3. Efficiency – Citizen submissions are routed to the proper department/individuals electronically for review and quick resolution. (Shorter wait time).
  4. Web-based – There are no snow days with FTG. Your citizens can connect with you no matter the weather.
  5. Capabilities – Being built on the Microsoft Dynamics® CRM platform allows for data sharing, business intelligence, and desktop integration.

Making it doggone easy for pet owners

So many people have pets these days. In fact, 68% of US households, or about 85 million families, own a pet, according to the 2017-2018 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA). Dogs and cats, and other animals, are our best furry friends. They are treated like one of the family. And, communities have embraced the beloved pet – with pet-friendly retail shops, dog parks, and more. As a representative of the community, wouldn’t you like to offer similar amenities to pet parents and veterinarians? It’s just one more way to connect with your citizens.

Pet Licensing and Vet Connect portals, options within the web-based FastTrackGov® (FTG) solution, make it doggone easy for pet owners and veterinarians to interact with their city clerks and administrators. These pet portals offer a complete suite of automated tools for a pet licensing application, renewal, review and approval, and associated fee payment collection. Tails will wag.

Citizens will enjoy:

  • Automated processes they can submit from their home
  • Paying fees/balances for new and renewed licenses online
  • Quicker turnaround time for their pet requests

Vet offices can:

  • Submit pet license applications and process renewals from their office
  • Issue new or renewal pet tags from the vet’s office
  • Find owner information on stray or lost pets

Clerks/administrators/officials offer:

  • Enhanced citizen satisfaction and added conveniences
  • Faster, more efficient pet licensing and payment processing
  • Better communication with applicants, payers, and approvers

FastTrackGov was developed with community engagement in mind, and their furry friends, too. Licensing, permitting, code enforcement, inspections, land management, environmental health, citizen interaction, along with pet and veterinarian services are the power of FTG.

You’ll get two paws up from vets, pets, and their owners by offering the FTG pet licensing and vet connect applications. Schedule a Demo
