This is where our job gets really exciting! Take a look at how the Global Post-Traumatic Stress Injury Foundation (Global) is putting the IHUBApp powered by InspireHUB Technologies to work to support its mission assisting people suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Injuries (PTSI).
Developing and implementing custom mobile apps was often beyond the scope of many local government budgets before Progressive Web App (PWA) technology came along. The cost for native app development, hosting, maintenance, and feature upgrades is high, and takes considerable time, making it an unsustainable option. Progressive Web App technology can engage the community at both a fraction of the cost of native apps, and much more quickly. PWA's are shaking up the ways cities connect with their community, distribute information effectively, connect constituents to one another, and enhance community morale in an economically feasible way. Here’s how...
As smartphones have become increasingly faster and more adept in their processing capabilities, mobile apps have followed suit, offering more user-friendly ways of accessing information, communicating with others, and increasing productivity. By the end of 2017, research indicates that nearly half of the world throughout 80 countries will own smartphones.
As these numbers continue to grow, so do opportunities for municipalities to engage with their communities. Municipal leaders looking to expand their reach and increase civic engagement can connect with users through any web-enabled device with mobile apps. Municipal apps, like the IHUBApp powered by InspireHUB Technologies, help cities thrive by providing the tools needed to improve both internal communications and productivity, while offering residents instant access to municipal data, services and leaders.
You coordinate municipal events. You have a small team, and an even smaller budget. You have council meetings and a roster of other conferences and events to manage. You’re heading into the height of festival season, which requires a complex coordination between staff, vendors and constituents. You’ve got schedules, sitemaps, resource guides and blog posts to publish on multiple social media channels. Your I.T. department has a stack of content a mile high to manage for other departments too. Staff vacations are about to make resources even tighter.
What to do?
While there are lots of ways to run successful events with lean resources, more cities are turning to technology to save time and money while boosting engagement.
And not just any technology will do. If you’re going to be lean and agile, you’ve got to go mobile with an event app. Here’s why…
Progressive Web Apps (PWA's) have had a banner year. For a relatively new arrival, users have been enjoying record speed successes with PWA's like the IHUPApp powered by InspireHUB Technologies. This fast, affordable technology is catching the attention of municipalities who are looking for innovative ways of engaging their citizens.
The Hidden Power of Inclusion? Reach!
W3C Accessibility Compliance. If you know this phrase you likely serve the public in some capacity and are aware of the need for your online presence to be accessible for those who are hearing and visually impaired. At InspireHUB Technologies, we believe that accessible technology is a human right. We are happy to report that some governments have passed legislation as they work to make this a reality. There's no doubt that ensuring your online presence can be accessed by everyone is just the right thing to do. It also ends up that adopting technologies that assist everyone can do more than just make you feel good; it can have direct benefits to your bottom line.
The unique terroir of your vineyard influences every aspect of your wines. While other vineyards may be in your same viticultural area, what makes your wines successful (besides a great growing season) is the team that you have assembled. If you are like many wineries you likely are participating in multiple tourist programs and have ensured that your winery is a part of the routes and promotions that are happening. You may have your own website and having an app is something you are exploring. Here we explain how the IHUBApp can not only help you with your marketing, promotion and engagement of visitors but also how the same app can help communicate with your entire team.
