Digital Transformation for Local and Regional Government

Driving digital transformation for the Public Sector

We know that today’s citizens want greater digital self-service convenience and that municipalities need to start taking a services-first approach to help meet the needs of constituents. For local and regional government (LRG) entities, the trend toward digital transformation can be leveraged to allow entities to streamline citizen engagement and self-service, improve city-wide asset maintenance and break down data silos.

PowerObjects can help. We are a leader in delivering Microsoft Business Applications through unparalleled offerings of service, support, education and add-ons. This powerful platform combined with our unique implementation approach sets the stage for LRG entities to meet citizen expectations using self-service portals, while streamlining operations and reporting for government-run programmes and services.
