Informative Graphics' ProjectDox Expedites Plan Check, Permitting Process for Cities and Counties; Electronic Plan Check to Help Unclog Procedural Bottleneck

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 11, 2006— Informative Graphics Corp. (IGC), a leader in content visualization, secure publishing and collaboration technology and makers of ProjectDox(TM) project communication and collaboration software, announced that the company will position ProjectDox for city and county construction planning departments as part of an overall strategy to provide advanced collaboration technology for companies and organizations working through the overall design/construction process.

"All major construction programs, no matter who is involved, have to traverse local government process and approval. In high-growth communities especially, the permitting personnel are swamped and approval times can take as long as 18 months," said Ron Loback, executive vice president, sales at IGC. "ProjectDox provides local agencies a way to help speed up the process, reduce costs and mistakes, and improve collaboration between civilians and their government. It's a natural fit for our product, one that addresses a significant and often expensive pain-point for all the principals."

"We can receive more than 100 commercial construction permits in a single day," said Gordon Jennings, director of IT, planning and development for Maricopa County, Ariz. "As the nation's third largest and one of the fastest growing counties overall, any tool that can help speed up the review process and reduce workload while maintaining our high standards for safety is crucial. We're counting on ProjectDox to make a real, positive impact in the way we do things," he added.

ProjectDox offers a number of other, short- and long-range benefits to city and county governments including:

-- The software is purchased, not rented -- no online service subscription fees

-- ProjectDox is a Web-based solution, only a browser is required

-- Deploying creates a "self-serve" environment for citizens

-- Support for customized and automated notifications, optimal workflow and processes

-- Extends value of digital assets across other departments/agencies such as fire, police, first responders
