After years of working with a traditional permitting vendor, Cambridge became frustrated with software bugs and limited control. The City began looking to nimble, cloud-based solutions and selected ViewPoint Cloud—going live shortly thereafter and building fully automated workflows and forms in just a few weeks.
After five years of working with another permitting, licensing, and inspection vendor, Cambridge became frustrated with software bugs and a lack of control. The City went in search of an experienced, dynamic vendor and selected ViewPoint Cloud for it's customizable platform, agile implementation, and well-established Massachusetts client base. After a brief training session with ViewPoint, Cambridge IT staff were very encouraged by the intuitive platform design and ran with it, setting up forms, workflows, documents, and fees on their own, in just a few short weeks.
