Electronic Plan Review Software Without Limitations

idtPlans has been innovating and leading the way in electronic plan review software (EPR) since 2001.  Electronic Plan Review has been shown to significantly shorten the plan review process while reducing paper requirements by more than 90% in most cases.  We work with you to convert your existing permit applications to intelligent online forms; eliminating the need to re-key data. Project owners can fill out their applications, submit their documents, and pay fees 24/7. Once the submittal package has been confirmed, Plan Reviewers are instantly notified and begin marking up and commenting on documents. Once all reviewers have marked their work as complete, an administrator is automatically notified. All reviewer comments are organized by sheet and department and then compiled into a customizable PDF correction letter with one click. The correction letter is then sent back to the applicant and permission is granted to upload the second submittal repeating the process until the project is approved.  Batch stamp the documents with one click and the applicant can print out their approved drawings and even schedule for inspections from any mobile device.


Dramatically improve visibility of departmental performance.  Quickly view which projects are under review and check their status.  Easily spot bottlenecks before they become problems.

Leverage our built-in reports and customize them to meet your needs, OR easily connect to our back end with the reporting suite of your choice for ad-hoc reports.

Customize workflows to automatically route projects, notifications, and instructions to reviewers and owners.  Chain workflows together to accommodate even the most complex of processes.

Create document templates for comment and approval letters.  The system will automatically merge the project information into an easy to read pdf document complete with a list of open issues that need to be addressed.


Use the built in dashboard or create your own personalized views.  Reviewers see all projects that they’re assigned to review along with their respective due dates.

Each reviewer has their own clear layer and can only edit their own markups.  Reviewers can work concurrently without fear of overwriting each others comments.  Easily cloud, color, measure, and make text annotations on any document.

Easily compare document revisions.  Use the the synchronized side by side view, or use the document overlay feature to easily see what has changed.

Import or build your own comment library.  Reviewers can use their own library or share standardized comments with other department members.  This eliminates the need to copy and paste commonly used comments and helps to standardize responses.


Applicants have their own view of every project that they have submitted.  Instantly reduce or eliminate questions about project status and due dates.  Applicants have one central location to manage new projects, resubmittals, and revisions.

Applicants can now work at their own pace and have accessibility even from remote locations.  Many times architects, engineers, and owners are not in close proximity.  Applicants can invite others to submit their portion of the documents and respond to comments that lie in their area of responsibility.

Automatically notify Applicants when key milestones are reached and reduce phone calls regarding project status and expected due dates. Applicants have 24×7 access to view project status, due dates, or begin the submittal process.

Easily create comment letters with a single click.  Automatically organize comments by discipline and sheet.  Comments contain links to the marked up documents.
