“Camino's Permit Guide was exactly what we needed to take the extensive permitting processes and show customers step-by-step what they would need to do in our system to submit their permit, get their permit reviewed, obtain the issued permit and even schedule the necessary inspections.”

Simplify Complex Location Rules
Camino incorporates your GIS data to pull in parcel details and other geographic restrictions. We help simplify complex location requirements for the applicant.
Automated Zoning Checks
Zoning rules can be overwhelming. Camino automatically checks whether a business or construction process is allowed based on the zone and identifies any extra approvals that may be required.
Detect Hazard Areas
Flag whether a property is in a flood zone, fire hazard area, or near a coast line. Make sure the right construction rules and insurance requirements are followed.
Surprisingly Easy to Implement
One of the most common reactions to our Guide is - “this looks amazing, but isn’t it a ton of work to set up?”
The great news is that the answer is “No!”.
Here’s how we make setup easy.
All configuration is done through a visual, no-code interface that's quick to learn. Our users frequently build and launch their own Guides in a matter of days.
Using our Network Search library, you can bring in content and rules from other agencies around the country. No need to redo work that somebody else has already done!
“Honestly, it was a lot of fun. I am the lead staff person for Camino in our office, and I was able to customize and build out our processes in Camino without frustration due to the ease-of-use that the back end of the software provides.”
