Revenue Mobile App

Revenue Mobile App is a project from Cook County, Illinois.

Local IT Innovation of the Year

The Cook County, Illinois, Revenue Mobile App was developed by the county’s GIS department. The smartphone-based solution allows users to enter newly-discovered taxable businesses while staff are in the field using the ArcGIS Survey123 product. The form also includes a method to record the location of the business using the phone’s GPS. Previously, field staff would gather data manually and consolidate their new business discoveries in Excel back in the office. A user can click on a parcel on the map and transfer data from the parcel layer into the form, automatically populating it with information like address, property identification number and municipality.
