COVID-19 transformed digital service options from “nice to have” to “absolutely must-have.” Local governments need fast, flexible, scalable, and cost-effective tools for this new normal to safely meet the needs of the people they serve.

Join us July 28 at 11:00am PT/2:00pm ET as our experts explore methods government agencies are using to increase efficiency and rapidly digitize core administrative services like licensing, permitting and regulatory functions as well as build new citizen engagement hubs.

We will discuss:
• How no-code software applications built within days enabled major U.S. cities to quickly scale their pandemic response and lay the groundwork for ongoing digital services
• How to simplify the entire application development process with a platform that’s simple, easy to use, and integrates seamlessly into legacy systems and software
• Ways to eliminate overhead costs associated with legacy code and maintenance
• New tech tools to drive ongoing two-way citizen engagement and public transparency
