Government officials can seem distant from the citizens they serve – tucked away in offices, out of reach behind doors and desks. But the City of Temple Terrace, located just north of Tampa, is adopting SavvyCard to make sure its staff is in touch with the needs of their constituents.
SavvyCard has built an anchor card and staff directory that make it easy for citizens to learn about and connect with their city on their mobile devices. Each member of the city administration, from City Councilors to Fire Inspectors, will also have their own SavvyCard, which they share with the rest of the city in dozens of ways. Their new SavvyCards will make it intuitive and quick for users to call or email city staff from their smartphone or mobile device.
“The core idea behind SavvyCard is making mobile fast and convenient for both users and organizations,” says SavvyCard CEO David Etheredge. “Using a desktop website on a smartphone is very difficult – that’s why 80% of users will just leave the page if it’s not mobile optimized. But at the same time, setting up a mobile website can be expensive and difficult for organizations. SavvyCard makes it cost-effective and fast for cities, or anyone else, to connect with constituents through their smartphones.”
