DIGITAL | AGILE | INTEGRATED Next generation Environment & Planning software

ASSURE delivers better services and smarter working, your way. Supporting Planning, Environmental and Regulatory services, ASSURE turns data into actionable information so that you – and your customers – can achieve more.

Designed for digital

Web-based and intuitive, ASSURE’s fresh look and feel displays perfectly on any device. By using the self-service portal, customers can make applications, load supporting documentation and check progress for themselves, lowering your costs and keeping your skilled staff focused on the more complex queries and cases.

Ready for agile

ASSURE provides a 360⁰ view of information and mobile apps for staff that work both on and offline. Being able to access key information whilst out in the field allows more queries to be resolved at first contact, meaning workloads can be better prioritised and travel reduced.

Activities can be completed in a fraction of the time, saving time and money.

"Our view has always been that if you’ve bought good software, use it. Integrated systems are easier both for users and IT administrators so moving to ASSURE means we can deliver the same services but do it better. It ticks all the boxes for flexibility, agility, self-service and value for money and we knew it was the right solution for our vision."

~ James Wilson, Environment Protection Manager, North Norfolk District Council

With built-in or connected electronic document management solutions, documents including drawings, photos, sound and video files can be marked-up online and links sent by email.
