Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD) is the latest Canadian local government to purchase SIRE Technologies’ electronic records and agenda management solutions. CVRD is a regional district in the Canadian province of British Columbia, located on the southern part of Vancouver Island, and the first local government in BC to join the SIRE family.
Cowichan Valley Regional District, who employs over 200 full time staff and serves a population of 80,000, has been looking for a central records management solution to act as a single database and manage corporate records from all departments and divisions within the District. To that end, SIRE will provide everything the District needs to electronically capture and store the District’s records, and provide easy access through robust searching functionality. The District will also utilize SIRE to manage the life cycle of all physical files as they move from active shelves to semi-active shelves to final disposition. In addition, the District has chosen to add SIRE’s Agenda Plus and Minutes Plus with Streaming Video to the project, providing the added value of automating the entire meeting management process and streaming meetings live and archived on the web. This will allow the District to significantly reduce the agenda preparation time, while also giving citizens immediate one-stop access to information such as agendas, actions, and linked meeting recordings, supporting the District’s goals of moving toward a paperless environment and increasing transparency.
“We are excited to welcome Cowichan Valley Regional District as our first customer in British Columbia,” said Linda Lang, Regional Director for the northwestern Canadian region. “We are working with a great group of people at the District, and expect this implementation to be our flagship for the province going forward.”
CVRD joins the ranks of over 20 existing Canadian customers such as Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge, Orillia, Ottawa, Stratford, Red Deer, Stony Plain, Oakville, Peterborough, and the Regional Municipality of Halton, among others.
