You Deserve Better

And ZipFlow delivers much, much better
User-Friendly Features

The Most User-Friendly Interface in the industry

We get more comments about this than any other feature. Staff loves it. Applicants love it. Experience truly frictionless permit management.

Timely Notifications

Everyone on your staff and involved in the project is notified when it's their turn to work on a project. You'll never wonder who has the ball on anything again.

Common UI For Everyone

One of the things that makes our interface so simple is that we don't have a different interface for staff than what the applicant sees. Everyone sees the same things and the same progress.

You Are In Control

Even though we have a simple, shared user interface, ZipFlow still keeps the control in your hands. You and your staff always decide when things are ready to move forward.

Map View

See all your projects on our wicked fast map view. Both in progress and archived projects can be filtered and viewed together.

Permit Layers

View all your jurisdiction permits in their own GIS layer, and turn it on and off with other layers in our map view.

Location-Based Automation

Automatically generate new requirements and other permits, based on the location of the project (add a permit when the project is in a flood plain, for example)

Integration With Your GIS Data

Never switch back and forth between apps. ZipFlow can make any of your GIS data available together with our own permitting and GIS data.
IN-BROWSER PLAN Review Features

Fast Documents Right in Your Browser

ZipFlow's document viewer and markup tool is the fastest one in the industry. It can open documents with a thousand pages, and it's buttery smooth. You can zoom, pan and more, all in the browser. Never shuffle paper or digital files again.

Track All Changes

ZipFlow tracks every red line, every comment, every fix and tracks them all across versions. Our document viewer also lets you compare two versions side-by-side.

Manage the Back and Forth

ZipFlow makes it easy to have conversations with an applicant about a single issue and track that issue, even when others join in the conversation.

Assign Anyone as a Reviewer

Does your city use outside contractors to help with the workload? No problem. ZipFlow can integrate them into the process as if they were in-house.
Inspections Features


We built ZipFlow from day one to be completely usable on mobile. And our inspector views are tailored specifically for someone running from one appointment to the next.

Mobile Punch Lists

Take photos and write right on the screen with your finger to call out issues. When saved, these photos get added to the punch list and become part of the project history.

Scheduling Ease

Our scheduling tools really stand out. The Building department has complete control while offloading scheduling hassles to those who can manage them best.

Flawless Handoffs

Because it's all in one integrated solution, the handoff from planning to inspections works exactly how you would want it to. Never lose track of the progress on a project, all while communicating automatically with your submitters.
Process Wizard Features

Custom Forms & Processes

We do all the work for you. You tell us your process and we re-create it along with custom forms that capture your process perfectly and publish it all online.

Document Upload

Need to accept huge documents with hundreds of pages? ZipFlow can handle those without breaking a sweat and even lets you review them right in the browser.

Effortless Meetings

No more back-and-forth email chains. ZipFlow has built-in tools that make it super easy to schedule meetings with anyone involved in the project.

Take Fee Payments

ZipFlow has a payment portal option built right into the form builder. And we can integrate with any financial system your city is already using.

What makes ZipFlow perfect for City Planners?

Make Complex Projects Effortless

ZipFlow is the only software tool in this space that can make complex projects like land-use super easy for both you and the applicant(s).

We can handle massive projects—even nested ones—with a simplicity that is unmatched in this industry. If you need help wrestling large, complex projects, ZipFlow has your back.

Simplicity is good for everyone.

ZipFlow was designed by the same people who designed software for Ancestry.com, Google, FamilySearch, and a number of other consumer-grade apps.

We know how to build user-friendly software that is simple, but powerful. When you use well-designed tools, you can get so much more done with less time and effort.

ZipFlow is Step-Based

Every project in ZipFlow is structured around a simple step-based interface. And everyone sees the same thing everyone else does.

When you need to do document reviews, meetings, fee payment, communication, etc, it's all in one simple step-based interface.

With ZipFlow, Document Review is a Team Sport

Our in-browser document review tool is fast, easy to use and allows multiple people in your organization to do reviews at the same time. Get real-time feedback as people mark up, comment, reply and discuss each issue.

Our review tool replaces DropBox, Bluebeam, and a bunch of other tools. You'll never dig through folders or files again to find the documents. Everything is versioned, kept up-to-date and in-sync with the project.

Super Fast Implementation Time

If you've ever been through an implementation with new software, you know it can take months and sometimes years to roll it out in an organization.

ZipFlow can do an implementation in just a few weeks. We've had customers implement within a single month.

We can’t wait to show you a demo of ZipFlow.
