We would like to recognize the winners of the 2012 Digital Cities Survey and congratulate them for their accomplishments
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
SIRE Technologies congratulates the winners of this year’s Digital Cities Survey. The survey, conducted by the Center for Digital Government and Digital Communities program, highlights U.S. cities demonstrating technology best practices to better serve constituents, and includes a number of SIRE customers such as Louisville Metro Government, KY; Boston; Henderson, NV; Cape Coral, FL; Winston-Salem, N.C.; Modesto, CA; Schaumburg, IL; and Eden Prairie, MN.
The average city or county office consumes literally millions of paper per year in fulfilling its obligations. Cities and counties using SIRE typically see the following benefits from automating their manual processes:
- Ability to Do More with Less: Automating previously manual processes frees up time that can be spent on things that really matter. Processes become faster, more accurate, and much more transparent.
- Paper Savings: Replacing paper documents with digital documents, providing agenda packets electronically instead of on paper, and utilizing web forms that replace thousands of paper applications are only some of the ways SIRE reduces the reams of paper used annually in government offices.
- Improved Access to Information: Self-service portals allow citizens to access and search information, effectively reducing the number or Freedom of Information Act requests every year. Publishing agendas with corresponding meeting minutes, votes, and supporting documentation all linked to the video recording of public meetings further improves transparency and citizen involvement.
“We would like to recognize the winners of the 2012 Digital Cities Survey and congratulate them for their accomplishments”, said Kris Painter, General Manager of SIRE Technologies. “The survey is a great tool to measure innovation and best practices, and we commend local government for their efforts in implementing cutting-edge technology like SIRE to improve their processes and enhance the service to citizens.”
