Land Management Industries
Private Enterprise Project Management
CityVerse was designed with the Private Sector in mind. Over the years we have worked with the nation's largest Right of Way Acquisition companies, fine-tuning the detailed management processes needed to keep your project under budget and ahead of schedule.
It can be challenging working with multiple municipalities because project management is not standardized across the board. CityVerse addresses this issue by enabling you to design a custom set of details and reports to meet the requirements of any client or project.
Additionally, our time and money management tools allow for the complete documentation of all vendor and employee time used and actions taken. This information is available to you in real-time and relates directly to your pre-defined budgets, thus providing you with the most efficient project status tracking available.
City, County & State Project Management
With so much to do at tax payers' expense, it is important stay organized and on track with your project management. From Planning & Development to Public Works, CityVerse enables you to handle many types of projects by allowing you to define the details you want to track and on which you need to report.
With our Dynamic Data Structure you can create new fields and processes so that you are never confined to a preset structure. You can create an unlimited amount of Process Types which allows you to tailor your data collection and tracking to the needs of each specific project.
After Process Types are created you can associate them with specific Projects. Each project specified will then inherit the properties and details that you need for efficient and effective project management.
With CityVerse, each department defines the parameters it needs to complete a project. Because it is a web-based program, CityVerse brings everyone together as if they were all working in the same room. After your initial set-up, when you authorize which employees and/or contractors will have permission to access data, they will be able to to view or input the most current project information using the Internet.
Federal Project Management
The acquisition of land for building and maintaining America's energy and transportation infrastructure is a challenging task. CityVerse is designed to help ease that process. Track Federal Land Acquisition projects from conception to completion, managing as much information as deemed necessary. Track pertinent project details along the way such as land details, employee notes, mapping coordinates, contacts, expenses, and much more.
CityVerse helps you plot out your project and budget your plan by starting with acquisition. Whether your project will cross hundreds of miles of city, county and state borders or just stretch from one end of a town to the other, CityVerse helps manage all of the entities involved. Our cohesive design allows data from multiple municipalities and agencies to all be brought together in one program.
CityVerse lets you know exactly what has and has not been completed in the progress of parcel acquisition. With thousands of parcels in the mix and entities from farmers to state land departments, CityVerse helps identify where the money is going and what areas need more attention. Bring the whole project in on-time and under budget by streamlining all of the tasks associated with the Federal Land Acquisition process.

CityVerse utilizes the open-ended nature of process and task creation to accomplish a truly customizable status report. Placing the power of reporting in the hands of the user is an ideal that is often overlooked by other software solutions.
