GovLoop Project of the Week – MyGov: Cities Serving Citizens

The ability to provide common services to citizens via the web is a growing need. There are some cities whom have enough funding to hire an in-house team to develop a full fledged system, some may have the ability to contract the work out, but others may not have the resources to take on such a major tasking. For those cities, a service like MyGov could be the next best thing.

What is MyGov about?

MyGov builds, maintains and hosts high-end, web-based, feature rich applications with clean, simple interfaces, a progressive, unique tracking approach, built-in web-access for all users, and a host of other unique features and benefits.

MyGov allows government and non-government entities to work together through a common interface. These entities share a common technology base and technicial expertise. By working together, the entities greatly reduce costs, government and non-government entities seamlessly work together, and everyone has access to a set of products and feature sets that greatly exceeds what they could normally afford or could maintain.

The City of Manvel has been using MyGov for the last four. It has been a very useful tool for our Permits & Inspections department.
