One of the Largest Counties in the U.S. Streamlined Coordination of Services and Strengthened Relationships…and So Can You

Fairfax County, Virginia is one of the largest counties in the U.S. With the highest population in the Commonwealth, coordinating services and communications with citizens is a monumental task. The County’s Board of Supervisors wanted to strengthen their connection with the community through more proactive communication and more efficiently manage inquiries. Multiple, disparate legacy systems were blocking the way.

All levels of government today are focusing on citizen relationship management — responding quickly and accurately to the requests and inquiries of citizens. In addition, citizens are demanding to be more involved in government affairs and their community.

Those on the front line understand the challenges involved in coordinating service and the importance of having the right tools to do it, both for internal administration and for easy public access. The goal is to build closer relationships, better anticipate and meet the needs of citizens, and develop a better understanding of what they want and expect from the government that serves them.
