Countdown to the Millionth online application – Day 6 and we’re almost there

by on February 14, 2012

Unbridled excitement is sweeping Portal Towers as our milestone approaches.

By 9.25 this morning we had processed a quite stupendous  996,021  online planning applications.

We anticipate reaching the magic million at some time on Friday.

But what has Dan the Portal’s stats supremo got for us today?


Just 3,979 applications to go…

    Can’t really see what all the fuss is about. Doesn’t excite me one bit.

      Fair comment but for those of us that have put blood, sweat and tears into e-enabling the planning process it’s a milestone worth celebrating.
      When we lauched our first electronic application back in 2003 there was no such thing and many doubted we’d ever get significant numbers of applications online.

      Today the majority of applications are submitted electronically saving businesses and Governments tens of millions of pounds and enormous amounts of paper and CO2.

      Forgive us if you feel this is self-indulgent but there’s little to celebrate in the public sector at the moment and I for one am going to grab this opportunity to let the Portal team and all those in industry and Local Government that have helped achieve know we appreciate them.
