Granicus clients are a very innovative group, often discovering new ways to leverage the latest technologies to raise public awareness. I wanted to take a few moments to highlight how Multnomah County combined Granicus and Google Docs as a powerful way to inform the public. Marina Baker, Assistant Board Clerk, for the Multnomah County Commissioners recently shared her innovation tip with us.
One of the best features of your Granicus solution is the agenda publishing! All agencies are required to notify the public of topics being discussed at an upcoming meeting through an agenda. With Granicus, this is all automated.
I love each and every product Granicus has to offer, but as a training professional, the Training Management Suite holds a special place in my heart. Just like many government professionals that produce and administer employee trainings for HR, Police, Fire, IT, among others—I manage Granicus’ training and enrichment program and am tasked with creating both live and on-demand video trainings, proctoring instructor-led and online exams, and managing the training records and test results for dozens of learners.
The fast adoption of smartphones and media tablets—like the iPhone and iPad—represents the most rapid transformation in American’s preferred medium for information since the advent of television. Every day, millions of citizens are getting more and more of their information through mobile devices.
Granicus hosted a webinar today that gave over 550 local, state, and federal government agencies the knowledge they need to reach this increasingly mobile audience with their mission critical video content.
Join our upcoming webinar to hear an industry expert discuss how governments can maximize transparency and accessibility with “mobile-friendly” video streaming—with Flash, HTML5, and Silverlight. Also, find out how agencies can prepare themselves to stay connected to citizens, regardless of the computer or device they are using, by leveraging Granicus’ new streaming media architecture.
As web content giants—Google, YouTube, Apple, and Facebook—shift to HTML5 to ride the next wave of growth in the mobile industry, Granicus is following suit to ensure government content is not left behind. We’re making mobile devices a top priority this year—especially as device sales are expected to surge in 2011, according to research released by Gartner in January.
Broward County, Florida is doing a great job of using their Granicus solution to connect with citizens through a video portal of educational, yet catchy content. I had the pleasure of training their staff on the software only a few months ago and they are already achieving success.
