Enhancement Designed to Improve Citizen and Government Interaction
MANHATTAN, KS – (May 7, 2013) CivicPlus, the leading developer of government websites and comprehensive community engagement software, announced the launch of its new Facilities and Reservations upgrade today, which adds capabilities for easier reservations, mapping integration and streamline payment processes.
CivicPlus’ enhanced Facilities and Reservations module now provides citizens the ability to view information about and reserve facilities online thanks to newly enhanced scheduling and facility reservation functionalities. The module’s mapping integration ties in seamlessly with Google Maps and ESRI online maps to allow easier access in finding directions to facility locations, and citizens are also now able to pay for reservations directly from the website with the integration of CivicPlus’ ePayment system for an all-in-one process.
“The Facilities and Reservations upgrade will allow citizens an easier process for completing reservations and transactions at their own convenience,” said Ward Morgan, CEO of CivicPlus. “With more than 1,300 government websites powered by CivicPlus, this is one of the most effective and efficient tools for use by citizens.”
