BasicGov adds licensing solution to its SaaS repertoire

BasicGov, a provider of municipal planning, permit and code enforcement software for local government, announced last week the launch of BasicGov Licensing. The web-based software will help governments streamline the application, payments and renewal process for all licenses within its jurisdiction, the company said.

BasicGov Licensing will join the company’s other offerings as cloud-based solutions, hosted by’s platform. The licensing solution will maximize local government revenue by automating licensing tasks related to business, contractors, animals and other licenses, vice president of Marketing and Sales, Michael Togyi, said.

“With BasicGov Licensing, we now offer our clients a complete turnkey package that includes code enforcement, permits and inspections, and planning combined with on-line citizen access,” he said.

In an interview last month, Mr. Togyi said that BasicGov was in a prime position to help governments switch to web-based service solutions to save money and improve productivity. Online, 24/7 citizen access is available through the BasicGov Citizen Portal, which integrates with all BasicGov modules and allows business owners and individuals to manage multiple license applications from home or office.

“Web-based solutions and the monthly subscription model are ideal for cost-conscious governments and BasicGov is the proven alternative to expensive enterprise systems,” he said.

According to a release by the company, BasicGov Licensing will cost $119 per module.
