Regional District of Kootenay Boundary, British Columbia (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
Today the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) in British Columbia, Canada, joined a growing number of local governments using iCompass’ Meeting Management Solution and AgendaNotes app to save tax-payer dollars, reduce paper waste and increase transparency to their citizens and stakeholders.
iCompass Technologies of Kamloops, BC provides a cloud-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.
Developed specifically for the public sector, the software automates the costly and time-consuming task of creating agenda packages (packets) for council and board meetings. It also allows budget-strapped organizations to dramatically reduce their paper, printing and distribution costs.
RDKB Chief Administrative Officer, John MacLean, says: "The solutions proposed by iCompass met the needs of our organization in terms of managing our work flows, getting information to our elected officials and acting on their decisions. The solutions will reduce our reliance on paper and printing which also does a lot of good in meeting our sustainability goals.”
“Local governments are faced with managing substantial amounts of documents and responding to constituent requests in a timely fashion all the time,” said iCompass President and CEO, Todd Stone. “The RDKB is yet another example of the fact that local governments no longer need to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on over-built and complex solutions for managing their information. Rather, with iCompass’ CivicWeb solution, they can embrace cloud-based applications that are tailored to their workflow processes and are much easier to use, at a substantially lower cost than was previously available to the market,” added Stone.
