After a comparative analysis of six document management products, the quality and innovation of SIRE’s Document and Agenda Management solutions made their product an apparent choice to our team.

The City of Sioux Falls, S.D., has completed implementation of SIRE Technologies’ complete legislative management system. The city originally purchased SIRE’s Electronic Document Management System as a base for SIRE’s complete product suite in early 2010. The second phase of the project included the addition of SIRE Agenda Plus and Video Plus. SIRE’s Video Plus replaced Granicus, Inc., the city’s previous video streaming provider, creating a single vendor legislative solution for Sioux Falls. The first city council meeting to be held and streamed live via SIRE took place Monday, December 20, 2010.

By implementing SIRE Agenda Plus, city staff will be able to:

  • Quickly and easily create agendas
  • Add and approve agenda items and supporting materials
  • Allow multiple users to submit agenda items
  • Publish everything to the web with the click of a button

SIRE Video Plus is designed to work seamlessly in conjunction with Agenda Plus. Video Plus makes it possible to:

  • Easily stream meetings as they happen
  • Record the meeting and publish them to the web together with the Agenda and supporting materials - all in a searchable format
  • Quickly locate recorded meeting segments through key word searches – eliminating the need to search through hours of video footage

By implementing SIRE’s legislative management product suite, officials at City of Sioux Falls will be able to dramatically reduce the amount of time, resources, and paper previously used in creating meeting agendas and supporting documents. City constituents will benefit from the streamlined, single provider format as well. SIRE’s Agenda and Video modules are designed with the viewer in mind. They give the public access to the information 24/7, encouraging increased government transparency and accountability.

Corey Putzier, Application Support Analyst and project leader for the city said, “The City of Sioux Falls’ management team set out to find the best Document and Agenda Management solution which would fit a diversity of needs identified within each of the city’s departments. After a comparative analysis of six document management products, the quality and innovation of SIRE’s Document and Agenda Management solutions made their product an apparent choice to our team. SIRE’s top-notch customer service and training impressed us greatly. Their staff is very dedicated and attentive to ensuring the implementation of a successful solution.”
