We are very proud to announce that three of our US clients have been recognized by The Center for Digital Government (CDG) as winners of the 2018 Digital Cities Survey.
Congratulations to Bellevue (WA), Boulder (CO) and Fort Collins (CO) who were all winners. All three of these cities have chosen Bang the Table’s EngagementHQ platform to maximize their commitment to online engagement.
Bellevue is one of our newest clients and their engagement platform is yet to launch.
The CDG noted that:
“Bellevue, the third-largest city in the metropolitan Seattle area, rocketed from fourth place last year to first by using data, enabling online functionality and realizing plans.”
We are very proud to have been chosen to partner the City of Bellevue on their journey into online community engagement which will help maintain their momentum as a digital city.
The community engagement portals for both Fort Collins and the City of Boulder were cited in the award announcement:
“Boulder has taken other steps to better engage constituents, such as redesigning the city’s website to make it more user-friendly and launching a new platform known as Be Bold Boulder (NOTE: it’s actually Be Heard Boulder), which makes getting involved in local government easier. The online town hall feature received about 6,400 visits during its first three months. Other technical improvements planned include the development of a broadband backbone in the next three years and implementing a cloud-first strategy for infrastructure in the next two years.”
“Fort Collins …… has made citizen engagement its main digital theme. Last year, Fort Collins launched an online platform designed specifically to help with engagement. OurCity provides residents with online tools for giving feedback to the city, including discussion forums, surveys and polls, and an ideas bulletin board. Already the platform has been used by 12 projects to develop discussions about ideas and topics, and more than 30,000 people have visited it while nearly 3,000 have registered as participants.”
Our congratulations to all involved in achieving this well-deserved recognition.
