Hanover Township Selects SDL

SOMERSET, NJ - July 11, 2022 - Spatial Data Logic welcomes Hanover Township, New Jersey.  Located in Morris County, the township will be implementing SDL’s Construction, Code Enforcement and Land Use modules to modernize processes for its Building & Zoning Department.

With Spatial Data Logic’s software, the department will be able to work collaboratively on development projects including zoning applications, building permits, board outcomes, plan reviews,  inspections and code enforcement. SDL’s software includes a project feature that will make it easy for the department to see any zoning, construction, land use and code applications in one place, in addition to any plan reviews, inspections, approvals, fees and attachments that are also associated with a specific development project.

In addition to increased visibility and collaboration, Spatial Data Logic’s software will enable Hanover’s staff to work effectively from any location. With SDL’s hosting services, the Building & Zoning Department can access their software whether they are working in the office or remotely. When working in the field, Hanover’s staff can use SDL Mobile to access property information, schedules, inspection history and statutes. Inspectors, zoning officials and code enforcers can also use SDL Mobile to complete inspections, document findings and complete other tasks from the field using their smartphones or tablets. 

Hanover Township currently serves over 14,000 residents, including the unincorporated communities of Whippany and Cedar Knolls. With SDL, the township will have access to 3 citizen-facing platforms that will make it easier for the public to submit applications, requests and forms online. The Building & Zoning Department will have full control over which features they want to enable for the public, but some of the options include online zoning applications, inspection requests, landlord registries, property/permit searches, building permit applications, property claims and change in occupancy requests.

We are excited for Hanover Township’s Building & Zoning Department to get started with its new software!

The Borough of Midland Park and Borough of Ho-Ho-Kus Select SDL

SOMERSET, NJ - June 30, 2022 - SDL welcomes two new Bergen County clients, the Borough of Midland Park and the Borough of Ho-Ho-Kus. By way of shared service, the boroughs will be implementing SDL’s Construction and Land Use modules. With SDL’s software and hosting services, the Construction Offical and his staff will be able to work efficiently from any location, move services online and seamlessly manage the building processes for both Midland Park and Ho-Ho-Kus.

Spatial Data Logic is an all-inclusive and interconnected municipal management software. As part of their agreement, Midland Park and Ho-Ho-Kus can take advantage of 3 municipal-facing and 3 citizen-facing platforms that the boroughs can enable to streamline permitting, plan reviews, inspections, violations and other development processes. The boroughs also opted for SDL Hosting which will ensure staff members can access their work whether they are in the office or working remotely. Inspectors can also utilize SDL Mobile to access property information, permit applications, statutes, schedules and other information from the field. SDL Mobile will also help the building inspectors complete inspections and document worksites with photos and notes.

SDL’s citizen platforms will also help Midland Park and Ho-Ho-Kus provide better services to their residents, businesses and professionals. First and foremost, SDL’s Online Plan Review solution will ensure both boroughs will be able to accept and review digital building permit applications and plans in compliance with new UCC permitting legislation. The boroughs can also enable online inspection requests, property searches and permit look-ups, which would make it easier for the public to access information and services. In doing so, both boroughs can expect to see a reduction in calls and incomplete submissions, freeing up time for other important tasks..

The Boroughs of Midland Park and Ho-Ho-Kus are the latest municipalities to take advantage of SDL’s shared software service agreements. Spatial Data Logic offers two different agreement options that provide flexibility for municipalities that share department services or want to pool resources with another municipality to secure more software licenses at a greater cost savings. 

“As local governments explore cost-effective ways to deliver services, we are seeing more and more interest in shared software service agreements,” said Jack Flood, Vice President of Operations at Spatial Data Logic. “We are excited to welcome Midland Park and Ho-Ho-Kus as our newest clients, and look forward to helping them implement software that will streamline building processes and services for both municipalities.”

SOMERSET, NJ - June 27, 2022 - Spatial Data Logic welcomes the Township of Edison! Located in Middlesex County, New Jersey, the township will be implementing SDL’s Construction, Code Enforcement, Land Use, Engineering, Clerk, Heath, Pet Licensing and Fire Prevention modules.

With Spatial Data Logic’s municipal management software, Edison will have an interconnected solution that will increase transparency and facilitate cross-department collaboration. Previously, the township was using a combination of spreadsheets and 3 other software providers to manage its municipal processes. With all of these departments flowing into SDL’s system, the township will have improved oversight of department activity, property history and trending issues, making it easier to identify ways to improve processes for its staff and citizens. 

With the SDL Enterprise License, Edison will have access to all of SDL’s municipal and citizen-facing platforms. Edison’s departments will have desktop, cloud-based and mobile solutions to streamline permitting, inspections, plan reviews, OPRA requests, complaints, violations, pet licensing and reporting both in the office and out in the field. Meanwhile, the township can activate SDL Sites, SDL Portal and SDL Citizen to deliver online services such as real-time issue reporting, property registries, mercantile applications, permit applications, inspection requests and other web-based services. In addition to pre-built requests, the town can also use SDL’s unlimited digital form builder to bring the township’s other paper and PDF processes online.

Opting for SDL’s hosting services, Edison’s staff members will also be able to access their software from any browser, allowing them to work efficiently both in and out of the office.

We are excited to work with the Township of Edison and look forward to modernizing processes for its staff and community members!

With Spatial Data Logic’s municipal management software, the Borough of Lincoln Park will have an interconnected solution that will increase transparency and collaboration throughout the building.

With all of these departments now flowing through one unified system, the borough will have better visibility into property history, department activities and development projects.

SDL’s software and hosting services will help the borough work efficiently in the office and when working from home. With its new software, the departments will be able to streamline permitting, inspections, violations, plan reviews and other municipal operations. Lincoln Park will also have access to a mobile app for its inspectors and citizen engagement tools to help disseminate information and move services online.

When choosing a new software provider, Lincoln Park's Building department looked for a proven software solution that its staff could rely on to streamline operations, collaborate with other departments, work efficiently from the field and comply with new UCC permitting legislation. Based on 25 years of best practices, SDL's software will enable the borough to accept permits and plans electronically, review digital plans, communicate with applicants, and facilitate online inspection scheduling.
