Smart cities allow government to better serve citizens by improving the feedback loop for the public to voice their opinions. The clearer the voice of the people, the better the support government agencies can provide.
VANCOUVER, Canada (PRWEB) September 13, 2018
MetroQuest, the leader in online public engagement solutions for governments and planning firms, has been named among the top 20 Most Promising Smart City Solution Providers for 2018 by CIOReview, the leading magazine that bridges the gap between enterprise and government IT vendors and buyers.
Over the past several months, a distinguished panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, analysts, and CIOReview’s own editorial board reviewed hundreds of the top companies that provide innovative tools to make cities smarter. They chose MetroQuest among the top 20 at the forefront of delivering modernization for cities.
“I would like to thank the esteemed panel of judges for recognizing MetroQuest with this award as a vital tool for today’s Smart Cities to engage citizens in planning for better, more livable cities. Public engagement is certainly at or near the top of today’s agenda for CIOs, smart city strategists, and urban planners,” said Mike Walsh, President at MetroQuest, “because ultimately smart cities are about people first, and leveraging advances in technology to improve their lives.”
“As a member of the American Planning Association’s Task Force for Smart Cities and Sustainability, we advocated that the responsibility of urban planners is to clearly articulate a community’s vision,” continued Mike Walsh. “Smart cities allow government to better serve citizens by improving the feedback loop for the public to voice their opinions. The clearer the voice of the people, the better the support government agencies can provide.”

Today’s preferred cloud-based public survey, MetroQuest delivers a highly visual and interactive online experience to educate residents about scenarios and tradeoffs, while collecting informed and quantifiable input.
