Features

Easy event type selection

Event type
The event type page allows applicants to select from a pre-defined list of events. These options can be configured per jurisdiction and according to the requirements of various departments.

Intuitive scheduling tools

Event time
The date and time selectors allow applicants to specify the time and duration of their event, and submit the request to staff for review. Conditional logic can be added to the forms to indicate dates and hours of operation of various city resources.

Powerful route and area builders

Location
The map interface allows applicants to select pre-defined areas on the map, or draw their own routes through the city. These tools are helpful for people planning block parties or parades, which need to be customized by location.

Real-time permit and fee calculation

Permits
Permit requirements and fees are calculated in real-time as applicants enter project details. A unique feature in the marketplace, OpenCounter can run fee estimations across departments and data sets. By digitizing the fee schedule and normalizing internal data, this feature also powers admin reporting, which gives policymakers insight into the effects of existing regulations and processes.

Online applications and payments

Receipt
After scoping the project, applicants can apply for permits online, and pay with all major credit cards. Issued permits are then available for download, and delivered via email along with a transaction receipt.
