Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) April 22, 2015
iCompass Technologies (http://www.icompasstech.com), the industry’s leading provider of paperless agenda, records and citizen engagement software to small and medium-sized local governments, today announces the launch and availability of AgendaFree, a cloud-based paperless agenda solution for all local governments.
It’s Really Free
Based on an “always free” freemium model, AgendaFree will allow budget-constrained, efficiency-minded local governments to evaluate and quickly move to a paperless agenda management solution.
Like all of iCompass’ cloud-based technologies, AgendaFree represents a value-added alternative that helps local governments get more done with fewer resources while providing more timely and effective services to the public.
“Many small to mid-sized local governments don’t believe they have the budget to move to a paperless agenda management solution, and yet they face the challenges and pressures of improving efficiency,” explains Paul Blanchet, Vice President of Customer Success & Operations at iCompass. “Now, with AgendaFree, these traditionally under-served organizations will be able to transition to innovative digital tools without any up-front investment.”
Adds Issaquah, Washington Clerk Tina Eggers, longtime user of iCompass’ Agenda Management Solutions: “iCompass is knowledgeable. They know what local governments do and they make the City of Issaquah more successful.”
Empowering All Public Officials
Many smaller organizations still produce paper agendas, which significantly limits the access to information in an increasingly digitalized world.
The paperless agenda empowers public officials, helping them be more responsive and deliver more effective services to constituents.
Transparency Isn’t Just For Big Cities
In addition to increasing efficiency, AgendaFree offers small and mid-sized governments a host of other important benefits. AgendaFree provides a meaningful first step toward expanded digital operations, helping satisfy legislators’ continued demands for greater transparency, and providing citizens improved access to information.
"Many local governments are trying to adopt or extend digital systems to manage agendas, records and legislation,” says Paulin Laberge, iCompass’ Chief Executive Officer. "AgendaFree can clearly facilitate that process while providing a gateway to increased transparency and efficiency for local government.”
Setup in Minutes
AgendaFree is easy to use. As a cloud-based solution with no software installation, it requires no IT support and no outside help to implement. A video based training and implementation process based on 16 years of local government experience ensures successful adoption by any organization. And AgendaFree can be accessed remotely from any device, removing a major obstacle for local governments that want to harness a paperless agenda management solution.
"Working with iCompass, my main focus is on eliminating tasks for staff that don’t add value,” says David Fierke, City Manager in Fort Dodge, Iowa. “Paperless agenda management software automates many of these time consuming activities, allowing staff to focus more on original content and implementing new ideas."
