Before revoking a license or expiring an application, your agency likely sends out first, second and third notices. Does your agency send these notices out manually? If so, you know this takes time, with no ability to track notices already sent. To operate efficiently, a system must allow users to send and track notices automatically by automating warning letters and emails.
Automated notices prevent common problems:
- System fails to track the notices already sent.
- System fails to track when to send notices.
- System fails to save notice to the record.
- Staff struggle to find communication.
- Staff miscommunicate information.
- Significant backlogs build up.
- Staff spend excessive time on manual process.
- Staff miss important deadlines.
- Constituents receive important information late.
- Missed deadlines subject agency to possible litigation.
- Agency receives pressure to update system.
Automated revocation notices offer solutions
Automated revocation notices use rules set by your agency. Automation enables you to send notices on a prescribed schedule, such as 30, 60 and 90 days overdue. An optimal system tracks the notifications already sent, whether the first, second or third, for example. And upon sending the final notice, if desired, the system automatically revokes a license, expires an application or closes a case due to non-responsiveness.
Store notifications along with related records in your system. This feature provides an important audit trail and saves filing time for your agency. Conversation-style tracking stores all replies to a notification.
