County Web Site to get rehaul?

 

 

QScend Technologies, Inc., announced today that it has been awarded a contract with Spotsylvania County, Virginia, to completely renovate its municipal website using QScend’s software suite of Web-based products.

Using QScend’s QContent™, Spotsylvania County staff will be able to create numerous RSS feeds, interactive GEO Content, photo galleries, email forms, and more. In addition, staff also will be able to make quick changes to each department’s web pages, thereby providing more up-to-date information, news, and event notification to the county’s residents.

Further, Spotsylvania County citizens will have enhanced access to their local government through:

  • QScheduler™, which provides an easy-to-use calendar of events with customized notes for each entry, and,

  • QNotify™, which enables citizens to receive in their e-mail box anything from event reminders, to meeting minutes and agendas, to weather cancellations, to new website updates – to name just a few possible uses.

    Finally, a modern website to provide ‘current’ information like agendas and minutes. Sounds good.

    This has been needed for a long time! The current website it very outdated and hard to find information and materials.

    Now, if they could just get staff to answer their emails, that would be wonderful! :)

    I’ve had pretty good luck on this myself.
    Sometimes, I get an answer in less than an hour
    …but anyhow.. a new website won’t necessarily
    improve the email response time.

    I don’t think the website is that bad….per se….

    I can get the Agenda/Minutes pretty easy… I can
    pay my taxes..pretty easy…. but searches for
    info are pretty lame…..you can do better using
    the GOOGLE site search function.

    I WOULD like to see them change their policy on
    paying bills with credit cards – as many localities
    and even DMV will accept readily.

    like an advertisement…. I must say
