PermiServ provides garden waste permit printing and permit management software for local authorities, taking on the administrative burden so councils can deliver efficient and reliable garden waste collection services to residents.

For councils making the move to a chargeable garden waste service, PermiServ can manage the transition from start to finish. For councils already delivering a chargeable garden waste service, PermiServ can help cut costs and boost efficiency.

PermiServ was established in 2016, when a family-run printing business received an order from a local council for 30,000 garden waste permits. It soon transpired that the council staff themselves were addressing, packing and posting thousands of permits by hand – with even the Head of Service pitching in to get all the permits sent out. This was clearly neither efficient nor sustainable, and an engineer at the printing business was determined to fix this. Combining a long history of label printing with IT development expertise, the team put together a working model that would convert a spreadsheet into a service request, print merge data on to permits, then automatically pack permits ready to be dispatched. PermiServ had arrived.

After a demo of how the technology worked, two councils immediately adopted the on-demand permit printing service with the management portal. They spread the word, and within just a few months, PermiServ was delivering permits for 25 local councils.

PermiServ now has the capacity to produce and dispatch 25 million permits each year, and currently produces permits for more than 100 local authorities. Their unique pricing structure makes financial planning easy, and their state-of-the-art printing facilities mean everything is done in-house, from permit design to production.

With 100%-camera-inspected fulfilment processes and a secure online portal for councils to track and manage their orders as well as conduct data analysis, PermiServ can guarantee that every permit they are asked to print is produced, packed and dispatched via Royal Mail. 98% of permits are dispatched within 3 days, making PermiServ the fastest in the industry.

“Our goal has always been to make life easier for councils,” says PermiServ’s Managing Director John Bayley. “That’s what drives us. We take on the administrative burden of delivering permits and solving any issues in-house so that councils can focus on delivering for their residents.”

Consider it done with PermiServ.
