The Borough of Demarest Selects SDL

SOMERSET, NJ - December 13, 2022 - The Borough of Demarest recently selected Spatial Data Logic’s software for its Building Department. Located in Bergen County, New Jersey, the borough was looking for a new software solution to help its Building Department address new UCC permitting legislation and move services online.

By implementing Spatial Data Logic’s software, the borough will benefit from an interconnected solution that streamlines permitting, plan reviews, inspections, violations and other development processes for its staff. SDL Mobile will also enable Demarest’s building inspectors to work more efficiently from the field. Inspectors will be able to access their daily schedules, get directions, send arrival notifications, look up property history, conduct inspections and complete other tasks using a smartphone or tablet. 

To comply with new electronic permitting legislation, the borough will soon be activating its SDL Portal account. The SDL Portal provides the public with 24/7 access to municipal information and services online. By activating the portal, Demarest’s Building Department can offer online permit applications, plan uploads, inspection requests, property/permit searches and status updates to its residents, businesses, and other community members.

Demarest joins 36 other Bergen County municipalities and hundreds of other government agencies nationwide that utilize SDL. We look forward to having them onboard!

Spatial Data Logic collaborates with the ICC to provide seamless access to building codes

SOMERSET, NJ - November 3, 2022 - Spatial Data Logic (SDL) is collaborating with the International Code Council (ICC) to provide its municipal software clients with seamless access to the ICC’s building codes and standards after participating in ICC’s pilot program. The alliance authorizes Spatial Data Logic as a third-party provider and reseller of the ICC’s newly launched ICC Code Connect API.

As part of the arrangement, local governments can license their ICC codes digitally when working in SDL’s building software. The codes will be available in SDL Desktop, SDL Online and SDL Mobile, making it easier for building officials, code officials, inspectors and technical assistants to access code data whenever they need it.

In addition to convenient access and efficiency, the ICC Code Connect API will ensure SDL software users have access to the most current codes and standards when completing plan reviews, violations, failed inspection notices and other processes. Once activated, users will be able to search the codes by section, title, number, keywords and other criteria. They will also be able to copy and paste the codes or link to a section when needed.

“With the increased need for more efficient digital services for building safety professionals, the development of ICC Code Connect™ API comes as an innovative solution to save organizations time and money,” said Joan O’Neil, International Code Council Chief Knowledge Officer. “We are excited to continue our collaboration with Spatial Data Logic as a reseller and third-party provider of ICC Code Connect API in order to provide enhanced digital services to local governments and the building community.”

“Spatial Data Logic is happy to continue our journey with the ICC to provide local governments with convenient access to the latest building codes and standards,” said Jack Flood, Vice President of Spatial Data Logic. “We look forward to further streamlining processes for our software users with the new ICC Code Connect API.”
