Waterbury, CT (PRWEB) October 4, 2007
The good life in the City of Blue Ash, Ohio, got even better recently with the launching of a new website, powered by QScend Technologies, Inc., designed to showcase the community's positive and progressive image.
"Our site better incorporates our newer branding and updates the convenience, design, look and efficiency for our residential and corporate citizens," said Sue Bennett, public information officer.
Blue Ash strikes a balance of commerce and community as evidenced by a mix of land usage that combines residential, business, and public/other lands. That's a proven formula for prosperity and livability, one that makes Blue Ash a model for small cities for business success and personal fulfillment.
That balance is visible on the Blue Ash website (http://www.blueash.com), as the main navigation items point toward residential life, government and City services, and the workforce. Using QScend's QContent™, Blue Ash staff can make quick changes to each page on the site, thereby providing more up-to-date information, news, and event information to the city's residents and workforce.
In addition, Blue Ash citizens and workers have enhanced access to local government through:
-- QScheduler™, which provides an easy-to-use calendar of events with customized notes for each entry;
-- QNotify™, which enables citizens to receive in their e-mail box anything from event reminders, to meeting minutes and agendas, to weather cancellations, to new website updates -- to name just a few possible uses;
-- QPolling™, allows municipal governments to create and manage multiple polls and surveys to collect information from website visitors; and,
-- QForms™, which provides a protected web filing cabinet for secure and easy access to documents residents require.
"When you think of the definition of quality of life, Blue Ash embodies that definition," said Keith LeBeau, President of QScend Technologies. "Our web-based content management tools, will serve to enhance the city's reputation by offering both residents and workforce a superior online resource for news and events in Blue Ash."
Blue Ash chose QScend because of the company's easy-to-use tools and the support offered through the design and migration process.
"QScend was the selected vendor from several who participated in the Request for Proposal process," said Bennett. "Overall, the (web) team was impressed with QScend's expertise with municipal and government websites, the user-friendly content management system, and the cooperative nature of the QScend staff."
