Better quality planning assessments made up to  50% faster 

Rico cuts through complexity and menial work, helping you produce gold-standard planning assessments up to 50% faster.

 Ditch the clunky word templates and overly manual assessment processes! 

Rico translates your existing templates and underlying assessment steps for preparing and processing planning applications into a cohesive digital workflow that lets you and your team

 deliver consistent, high quality decisions and reports every time.

Make quality and consistency a part of your process, not a step (or many!) after

 Reduce training time and complexity upfront and review and rework  down the line with a clear process for adapting to the intricacies and nuances of each proposal and ensuring you've got everything covered.

Automate the manual work and focus on making the right calls

Rico streamlines tedious administrative tasks such as document formatting and copy-pasting, freeing up approximately 30% of your time typically consumed by details and distractions to

 focus on making the right calls and delivering the best outcomes. 

What other planners are saying...

- Michael Campbell, Director

"Getting set up was easy... we definitely retained the look and feel of our documents, the flow of information, and the consistency we aim for.

-Alexandra Low, Senior Planner

“This lets you just concentrate on the actual assessments as opposed to formatting and admin sort of work.”
