While this calculator may look simple, there are some serious calculations going on in the background. CM Business Writing built this customized web application for a land developer who wanted to give his clients an easy way to find out whether their land entitlements had expired.
The calculator runs two inputs (approval and expiration dates) against the criteria of five bills passed by California State Congress. Each bill grants an extension for entitlements (if they meet a certain criteria). While it sounds simple enough, before this calculator, people had to read five complex laws, understand them, and then run their entitlements against the criteria.
Now all it takes is two inputs and one click and everyone’s a legal expert.
