First State Business Integration

Problem

Many business owners are burdened by the need to comply with numerous regulations, spending too much time filling out duplicate information for various forms/permits and taking time away from managing and expanding their business.

Solution

Rep. Short believes that utilizing cloud computing can streamline Delaware’s permit process to support existing businesses and further business start-ups by helping them identify what they need to be in compliance. He is proposing to allow state, county and municipal governments to download information for a business that is common in their applications for licenses and permits. This common information could be filled out once by the company and then uploaded for retrieval by authorized entities that would then be able to have their required forms/permits/licensing auto-filled, saving time and resources.
