Business Portal

The Business Portal helps entrepreneurs to understand the costs and complexity of starting a business—before they begin their permit applications.

The Business Portal aims to answer the following questions for prospective business owners:

While these questions can usually be answered at the department level, cities often lack a tool to provide a unified overview of the process. OpenCounter takes the guess-work out of the process by calculating requirements dynamically as applicants enter information. For administrative staff, it provides insights into trends in the community, a new channel for outreach, and eliminates redundant conversations on both sides of the counter. City staff can analyze data through powerful dashboards and can export data in for further research.
