The City of Livermore, California Community & Economic Development Department provides services that relate to land use, building construction, infrastructure development and economic development. The Department strives to consistently improve methods to access the critical information required by citizens and other City government departments.
The Community and Economic Development Department has been working with BMI Imaging for over 15 years. BMI continues to scan and index large format paper documents such as building plans, structural calculations, grading plans and utility maps.
When the City’s microfiche reader/printers began to fail, Livermore took the opportunity to explore digital options because many of the Department’s constituents were requesting emailed copies of records rather than paper copies printed from the microfiche archive.
After exploring options, the Department selected BMI’s Digital ReeL as its microfiche replacement solution. In addition, all large format paper documents are digitally available from the Digital ReeL viewer.
