One of the most widely implemented Architecture, Engineering & Construction software for electronic ways of performing government tasks (e-governance) of building plans, AutoDCR® is an innovative building plan scrutiny and approval system. The next generation technology is designed to automatically analyze CAD drawings and map them to applicable Federal, state, or local building codes and regulations, providing an instantaneous report and indication of any code violations and code references. This software brings greater efficiency and effectiveness in the permit approval process. It is designed to ease the burden of the approval process on staff, provide clarity, and save time.
Analyze CAD drawings and generate results reports in a few minutes.
Maps all building codes of the Authority to drawing entities.
Saves time and Streamlines the cumbersome manual process of checking building codes
Reduces paperwork and saves time for architects, consultants and approving authorities.
Offers single solution for Acquiring Building Permits, Certificates of Occupancy, No Objection Certificate, and approvals from multiple agencies.
Digitize the approvals and certification process.
Standardizes the plan approval process
AutoDCR® provides a single window solution for building permits and approvals from multiple agencies. AutoDCR® is a worldwide solution that is customizable to any location or organization’s specific needs or building code library. This solution caters to several types of worldwide organizations engaged in building plan scrutiny and approvals including, but not limited to:
Industrial Development Corporation (Architecture, Engineering, Construction)
AutoDCR® comes with a built-in Process Work Flow framework – ‘BPAMS’ (Building Plan Approval Management System) for process automation. The two step process comprises proposal file movement followed by architectural plan approval. Designed in different modules termed ‘consoles’,AutoDCR®, covers each step through which the proposal flows:
Architects submit the plan online along with the application form to all relevant departments through a single window system.
After initial scrutiny of the documents, a date for the site visit of the building inspector or concerned officer is notified to the Architects and concerned Building Inspectors via SMS.
Site visit photographs and videos are uploaded by site inspector using mobile app. Site inspection checklist is automatically filled if AutoDCR® is integrated with GIS city maps.
After site inspection, CAD drawing submitted by Architect/ applicant is automatically scrutinized against the building regulations /NOC parameters prescribed by the authority.
The scrutiny reports will be forwarded to respective departments. A digitally signed approval letter is generated after online payment of fees.
Auto-generated SMS/emails are sent at various stages. Proposal information is made available online for citizens. MIS reports are generated for tracking and monitoring.
Uniformity and Compliance
The approval is based on uniform interpretation of development control rules bringing in uniformity and compliance.
AutoDCR® accelerates the scrutiny and approval process by eliminating lengthy and cumbersome computations
Process Innovation & Integration
The transformation of the scrutiny and approval of plans through CAD and workflow technology brings in innovation in the process. All stakeholders concerned in the approval process are brought together on a single platform.
Authorized roles and responsibilities are mapped and MIS reports are generated to help track process efficiency.
Subjectivity in the plan approval process is totally eliminated and clear reasons are stated for approvals or rejections.
