This construction licensing agency in Arizona supports the construction industry which represents 8% of AZ’s GDP, manages 39,800 active licenses, and investigates 7,000 complaints a year.
The client needed the electronic application process to be both comprehensive and robust while providing a seamless user experience for the applicant. The platform also needed to support Licensing Department, Compliance Department, Legal Department, and Accounting department processes.
The e-Licensing application that we built on the Salesforce Lightning Platform used the existing functionality of various products and APIs in conjunction with our proprietary code to be able to accomplish these business goals. They were able to manage the licensing application process, the renewal process, fee management, complaint management, legal process management and provided the required reporting and dashboards functions they needed. The Arizona Corporate Commissions API allowed functionality for LLC or Corporation verification for the state of Arizona and the Smarty Streets API verified addresses to reduce returned mail costs. We also incorporated integrations with external partners such as PSI, to receive daily exam results, and FirstAdvantage, to receive daily background check results.
Other solutions include functionality for online form submissions for new, renewal, and reinstatement applications using DocuSign Intelledox, document management with Egnyte (AppEchange), document generation through Nintex, text messaging notifications with EMAG, electronic payment capabilities using the JBilling integration and AFIS reporting for the state financial information system.
