Ask Us Anything: Transitioning to Online Services

Turning Rushed Projects into Transformative Initiatives

The last year found governments rapidly digitizing key processes to meet demand and socially distanced needs. For previously in-person services, that meant creating duct-taped and bandaged solutions to immediate problems to fulfill services.

Since necessity is often the mother of invention, governments are now looking to turn those temporary solutions into long-term efficiency and improved civic engagement gains. But that transition can create a variety of unforeseen questions or problems.

The “Ask Us Anything” session brings together two respected experts to give answers to your questions about efficiencies in online services, increasing adoption of services, and where you can save resources in your civic engagement tech stack.

Join Patrick Moore, former CIO of Georgia and current VP of Business Development at Granicus, and Sid Burgess, former City Councilman and current Senior Solutions Consultant for Granicus for answers and insights gained from working with governments to improve their service fulfillment efficiency and civic experience.

Come ready with your questions, as this will be almost entirely audience driven! Here are some we’ve had so far:
