We are pleased to announce that Sunderland City Council have invested in StarTraq’s cloud-based highways licensing and permitting software, StarGo.
The solution will enable Sunderland to digitise the application and approval of five licence and permit types, these include: Skips, Scaffolding, Section 50s, Section 171s and Cherry pickers and MEWPS.
The StarGo solution consists of a smartphone-enabled portal where applicants can create an account to apply for and renew licences, a comprehensive back-office to manage the application process and a smartphone enforcement app for Highways Inspectors to check the validity of licences in the field, and issue an FPN (Fixed Penalty Notice) where necessary.
StarGo can integrate with the DfT StreetManager system via API. StreetManager will plot the activity on a map displaying the following information from StarGo:
- Licence number from StarGo
- Activity type e.g. Skip Licence
- Start and end dates
