Solodev CMS: Powering Next Generation Local Government Websites to Improve Constituent Services

In our first featured post regarding Solodev CMS, I mentioned that the platform has a history of powering government websites.

Making use of built-in features like data-driven forms, document management, workflow management, and the Solodev API, local governments have leveraged the platform to power their online presences.

Today, Solodev’s government clientele includes; State of Florida, Seminole County, Osceola County, City of Orlando and City of Miami Beach.

Bridging the Gap

I think it’s fair to say that local government websites are not typically known for cutting edge features and functionality.

And yet, town, city and county residents are used to managing much of their lives online – and want to do the same with regard to their interactions with their town hall.

To bridge that digital gap, Solodev CMS delivers a full range of features. Let’s take a closer look at the most relevant ones.

Custom, Custom, Custom

On top of websites and apps being mobile optimized out of the box, developers can produce custom applications to handle government data and activities, including;

  • staff directories

  • emergency alert functionality

  • events, calendar management

  • news management

  • video and photo galleries

  • blogs and landing page management

Customized solutions can also be produced further thanks to Solodev’s RESTful API, which allows for custom and third-party integrations.

Making Life Easier for Constituents

Speaking of integrations, Solodev also integrates with a range of social media websites, encouraging social sharing and providing single-sign-on options.

Solodev’s development team has also put tremendous emphasis on the platform’s easy-to-manage CMS capabilities with SEO optimization, aiming to help residents or other constituents find what they're looking for more easily.

Furthermore, 24/7 self-service capabilities around bill pay, service requests, and general information is made available, streamlining those online constituent experiences as much as possible.

To round things off, Solodev CMS 8 boasts ADA compliancy, as well as AWS hosting with full disaster recovery – perfect for government bodies who simply cannot afford to lose data.
