Mayor Nutter officially unveiled Thursday phase two of an effort to overhaul the business services portal on Phila.gov.
If you’re surprised by the continued development of Phila.gov/business ahead of an on-going site-wide redesign effort, then you might also marvel at the fact that the project landed on time from an internal deadline Technically Philly reported on in June, despite the start and stop of the overall Phila.gov refresh.
Visit the new business portal here: Phila.gov/business.
The city is trumpeting the ‘Business Assistant’ wizard, which is meant to walk new businesses through the online process of meeting city license and compliance requirements. Additional web access to permits and applications was another big goal for the project. In September, the wizard soft launched and, since then, some 720 users have registered and half have sought information on business, a press release said.
How widely used the portal will be will test the effort’s success. This multi-agency effort lands as other portions of Phila.gov are being recast. Internal deadlines for that project have varied.
