A set of web-based tools for local governments

CivicEngage is an easy-to-use suite of web-based tools that enables local governments to evolve their web presence so they can inform and empower staff and citizens in more efficient ways. It is simple enough to create a page in a few time and can integrate easily into existing systems.

CivicEngage streamlines the process so that any municipality can easily communicate information to citizens. It enables team members create and manage website content independently and quickly deliver time-sensitive news.

It provides simple tools for government staff to contribute to the web presence, such as pointers to contact information and resources most in demand. In this way, the number of callers requesting simple contact information by publishing a consolidated staff directory online is decreased and citizens are directed to local providers with listings for community services, local businesses, voting places and new resident information like utility providers.
