A convenient service for citizens … a valuable resource for governments
All levels of government today are focusing on citizen relationship management—responding quickly and accurately to the requests and inquiries of their citizens regarding everything from local government affairs, services, and events to traffic and street problems and reporting stray animals. In addition, citizens today are demanding increased participation in government affairs and expect to be involved in what’s happening in their community.
If you’re on the front line of the government receiving these requests, you understand the challenges of coordinating service and the importance of having the right tools, both for internal administration and for easy public access. Your goal is to build closer relationships, better anticipate and meet the needs of your citizens, and develop a better understanding of what they want and expect from the government that serves them.
