We are hoping that this offer will enable more cities and counties to take their meetings and events online for the first time
Salt Lake City, Utah (Vocus) October 1, 2009
SIRE Technologies, a leading provider of agenda automation and content management software, today announced a limited time offer on their streaming video software. The offer allows municipalities in selected areas to economically bring their meetings online for 24/7 live and archived access.
The complete turnkey offer by SIRE Technologies is designed to improve transparency and increase community participation in their government. Since more citizens are likely to watch council meetings online from the comfort of their home, municipalities can now increase service levels and reach more constituents by providing streaming webcasts of their meetings. Streaming video can be used to webcast meetings and events, focus groups, training and safety videos, business meetings, and generally communicate information internally to staff and externally to the public.
"We are hoping that this offer will enable more cities and counties to take their meetings and events online for the first time," said Kris Painter, President of SIRE Technologies. "We recognize that in the current economic climate, it is hard for government agencies to improve service levels and implement new technology. We hope this offer will provide a low-risk opportunity for those agencies to explore the possibilities of streaming video technology".
Taking the live streaming technology one step further, on-demand archived video can be made available online for future access. These archived videos can be indexed and tied to the meeting agenda, minutes, and all supporting material in a searchable manner. That way, viewers can jump directly to the portion of the video where an item of interest to them is discussed without forwarding or rewinding through the entire meeting.
For those interested in automating the entire meeting process from start to finish and then some, SIRE Technologies offers product modules for that, too. SIRE's complete meeting management includes the automation of the entire agenda creation process, web publishing, voting, minutes automation, business process automation, workflow routing, comprehensive search capabilities, and much more. With the product's modular design, cities and counties can build the perfect solution to meet their needs, without paying for products they don't really need. And with everything being provided from the same vendor, it's easy to extend the solution into other departments at any time and integrate with existing third-party applications, while avoiding the hassle associated with dealing with multiple vendors.
