Melville, Saskatchewan (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
Today (June 29, 2012) the City of Melville, SK, became the second local government in the province to embrace the iCompass Meeting Management Solution, a technology service that will provide easier access to information for the public and council as well as a reduction in paper waste. In subscribing to iCompass’ meeting and tracking applications, Melville is furthering its efforts to go green. Adopting a paperless agenda solution adds to the many eco-friendly initiatives underway at the municipality.
iCompass Technologies of Kamloops, BC provides a web-based Meeting Management Solution that streamlines the creation, approval and distribution of agendas, minutes and related meeting actions for over 400 local government customers across North America.
Melville Assistant City Clerk, Kayla Hauser, says: “We are very excited to use the Meeting Management Solution software provided by iCompass. This will make us one step closer to achieving our goal of ‘going green’ within our City.”
iCompass President and CEO, Todd Stone, says: “Municipalities of all sizes are increasingly faced with the challenge of managing huge amounts of data, websites that need to be updated frequently, and never-ending constituent requests,” said Stone.
"Municipal employees are buried under thousands of pages of documents that need to be organized, and they often can’t find what they’re looking for in a timely fashion. Now, for the first time ever, small to medium urban and rural municipalities are able to afford information management applications that have traditionally only been available to the larger municipalities,” added Stone.
