"I rely on Chicago Cityscape as my secret to success: Being able to get alerts sent to my email any time my top customers pull permits, allowing me to anticipate the needs of my clients, and stay ahead of my competitors. The ever-evolving features allow me to sort and track in multiple ways, making Chicago Cityscape an invaluable resource to track all the permits that are important to me. I know I wouldn’t be as successful in my construction sales role if it weren't for Chicago Cityscape over the past two years."
