It improves the efficiency of government sectors while providing permissions to a constituent.

Public Sector Solutions was built on top of Service cloud platform of Salesforce with the above-mentioned basic architecture. We can use those tools to implement license and permit management to public sector. Let we talk about each of these capabilities. 


License and permit management starts with applications. Individuals and business owners start with submitting application when applying to get a permit or license from a public sector.

Violations are found through inspections or complaints while an individual or business entity does not comply with regulatory codes and enforcements are the actions taken on them. 


This is to store data that a customer provides about a lack of compliance

Accounts and Applications 

Account and Application objects play a vital role is PSS data model. As usual, we have two types of accounts– person account and business account. Person accounts will submit individual applications to get permissions needed for an individual from a public entity and Business accounts will submit business applications to get permissions to handle their business. 

Business accounts are tightly coupled with Contact to store about a person’s information and with Business profile to store business structure. Individual and Business accounts can submit their respective application through online portal which can be built through Experience cloud. Applications in portal can be built either by Omni studio tools such as Omniscripts and Data raptors or through LWC framework.
