Pinellas County's "Doing Things for You" SeeClickFix mobile app won a top technology award for innovation from one of the nation's leading nonprofits in local government technology.
The non-profit, the Public Technology Institute, supports local government executives and elected officials through research, education, executive-level consulting services and national recognition programs. Every year, PTI recognizes local governments that use technology to improve service delivery, reduce costs and generate revenues. This year their annual PTI 2015 Technology Solutions competition featured a wide array of interesting and innovative entries. The recipients of the awards were chosen by an independent panel of judges.
Pinellas County's "Doing Things for You" mobile app was selected as a winner of the "Web Management & E-Government" category for innovative municipal and regional issue reporting.
The app allows Pinellas County citizens to report issues in the community on their mobile device with the swipe of a finger, a simple solution that helps the county quickly receive, respond to, and manage service requests. In addition, the platform is a unique, innovative shared service solution: allowing the county, municipalities and the Florida Department of Transportation to identify and address everything from potholes to flooding.
According to Michael Roiland, web manager for Pinellas County's Business Technology Services department, the technology makes it easier for citizens and their government to work together at making the community a better place.
Roiland adds: "Through citizen participation and government partnerships, we're collaboratively improving communities while setting a new standard for public service."
This isn't the first time Pinellas County has been recognized for using their mobile app towork with municipalities to provide excellent, seamless public services. We're proud partners of Pinellas County and are excited to continue to help the county improve these services.
Congratulations to other other partners for winning PTI awards as well!
