The Case for Code Enforcement Software in the Age of COVID-19
The pandemic has forced Code Enforcement Departments to respond to threats faster and rethink procedures. Learn why MyGov’s innovative software is the all-in-one solution during the age of COVID-19 — and beyond.
Since early 2020, our personal lives, communities, and work have shifted dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic. While we’ve made significant strides in a return to “normal” (more employees back in the office, a better understanding of the disease, and developing effective vaccines), the last two years have ushered in unprecedented changes for businesses — especially government agencies. It’s forced us all to become more agile and adapt. More specifically, there is a demand for Code Enforcement professionals to respond to threats immediately and rethink procedures.
At MyGov, we understand that adherence to health and safety codes is critical to the conservation and growth of every thriving community. And COVID-19 has presented ongoing challenges for Code Enforcement professionals who’ve worked to maintain strict standards and protect themselves and the citizens they serve.
So if your agency’s situation feels chaotic, you’re working with an outdated system, or you’ve been searching for a better way to keep your team on top of action items, MyGov is your solution.
Read on to learn how we help you tackle code violations faster — and equip you with the best code enforcement software for the future.
A look at common problems
Between illegal signs, graffiti, and building code violations, your code enforcement department is in charge of a lot. We know it’s not easy to track every work order and its status. And endless paper trails do more harm than good.
That’s why we’ve worked with hundreds of agencies to understand their core code compliance issues. Some of these include:
Receiving and responding to citizen requests promptly
Inspecting potential violations and assigning work orders remotely
Lacking a platform to engage with colleagues
Needing a way to store or generate documents securely
How does MyGov make city code enforcement easier?
With MyGov’s code enforcement software, you’ll have everything you need — right at your fingertips. That means:
Convenience of secure, digital records
Instant tracking of violations, inspections, and citations
Increased agency capacity
Seamless case management with citizens and colleagues
Ability to distribute abatement work orders
For over 20 years, we’ve provided innovative, cloud-based software with all these benefits so code enforcement departments can run entirely online. And while COVID-19 presented a minor disruption for many of our clients, our solution has been instrumental for other Code Enforcement Departments, who now require a digital plan for COVID-19 and beyond.
