Today’s local governments across the country are under increasing pressure to cut costs, stretch budgets, find efficiencies, and essentially do more with less. Now more than ever, local governments are in need of tools and solutions that can enable them to more efficiently meet their civic engagement goals using every available communication channel. The key for local governments, however, is to choose solutions that are just as easy for citizens to engage with, as they are for administrators to manage.
As revealed in a study by the Pew Research Center, less than 30 percent of adults take advantage of their local government’s digital offerings in order to complete common services, such as submitting and following-up on requests. Studies reveal that the most common reasons citizens are failing to take advantage of government-implemented digital solutions is due to the fact that the chosen tools are not intuitive or user friendly. As a result, citizens are taking their requests offline, which increases paperwork, phone calls, and walk-ins for local government administrators to manage throughout their already busy days.
