The CRM Program is composed of a suite of software applications that enable the delivery and tracking of many City services that directly touch individual constituents and businesses.

  • Customer Service Request (CSR) system is the City’s cornerstone software application that enables citizens and businesses to request City services to be initiated online or by phone to 311, to be distributed to the appropriate City service departments that deliver the requested services, and to be tracked for status and for outcomes through the completion of the request, which also may be inquired about online or by phone to 311.
  • Administrative Hearings Management System (AHMS) is the software application that enables many of the services provided by the Administrative Hearing Department.   The system coordinates, tracks and reports on the matters which are reviewed and adjudicated relating to the public health, safety, welfare, morals and economic well being of the residents of the City of Chicago.
