Permit management: Through effective permit management, organisations ensure that they are compliant with government and internal governance policies. The Permit Management module enables organisations to manage, monitor, track and report across business functions and departments. This covers permits, licenses and certificates as well as all related business activities related to maintenance, operational, contract and asset compliance.

Key features of permit management includes:

  • Issuing permits, certificates and licenses which are then associated with business roles, employees, assets, and business activities (tasks) such as maintenance, contracts and operations;
  • Validating and tracking of permits, licenses and certificates according to expiry dates;
  • Monitoring of renewals, expiry dates and compliance on an on-going, up-to-date basis;
  • Issuing permits or certificates for the granting of special permissions to perform selected business activities;
  • Enforcing permits through best-practice template configuration.

This function is used to create and allocate permits or certifications to an object, specific, and events. In principle if a Work Order requires a certain certification for an object to enable the latter to work on the bespoke Work Order, this is what is validated against. New permits must also be created via the Permit Register functionality. Within the Permit register a permit is created and a start and end date can be identified for the permit, but the Permit may only be valid on this task until a certain date due to certain regulations. The validity of the permit can be defined for the applicable Service Request registered. Once defined, it can be linked to the Object. A permit has a valid period, which is assigned to it. The allocation to the Object can have an expiry date before the end of the Permit Expiry date. The same Permit can be linked to multiple Objects.
