Most planners make assessments manually and create reports using Word templates.
Tedious to record.
Process involves a large number of considerations to hold in mind, creating information overload and additional worry.
Ad-hoc approaches are prone to missed considerations that cause frustrating delays, rework, and issues in Council.
Existing reports and templates must be tediously adapted to new projects.
Copy-pasting and formatting consume time and wear you down.
'Gluing' together existing reports increases the risk of error and missed information.
Relevant existing assessments are hard to find buried in old reports.
