As Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) Vice President Daniel Castra wrote in a recent article, "People's primary interactions with government increasingly occur online, so it is essential that government websites perform optimally. They should not just be secure, but also fast, mobile friendly and accessible for people with disabilities." "You need a home base where all your information can live and be linked," Ekey said. "Our community is in a reverse bell curve; on one side we have an older population more rooted in traditional media and on the opposite side we have young, tech savvy families, which are our fastest-growing population. To serve both audiences, we're getting smarter in design, publishing smaller chunks of information and more infographics that translate well to our website and social platforms. With any magazine or weekly newsletter, we try to push people to the website, which allows us to track interest and be more responsive." Other local gov communications and IT experts who also have embraced the digital culture agree there's no turning back. La Quinta, California, for example, has experienced an influx of young Gen-X and Millennial families over the last five years. "We are a heavily digital city," said Marcie Graham, La Quinta's marketing & communications supervisor. "People prefer online services and communication, and we've responded to that. They now can apply for permits completely online. It's faster, more convenient and environmentally friendly. We're looking to go digital and paperless for all our processes moving forward." In San Marcos, California, one of the fastest growing cities in San Diego County, demographics have changed substantially over the last 10 years. "We've gone from cow town and chicken farms to a diverse, vibrant community with an added daytime population of nearly 50,000 college students and faculty," said San Marcos Communications Officer Sarah MacDonald. "It's important to know your audience and your community; it influences how you meet their needs. Our area is very tech savvy and residents, students and businesses expect their experience with government to mirror that in the private sector." San Marcos responded to these digital expectations with an upgraded responsive website designed to accommodate the heavy use of mobile devices. The new site offers online job applications, the ability to report concerns and an online map of major development projects that provides real-time updates on work being done throughout the area. While a shift in a community's demographic mix can drive a local government to adopt a digital culture, internal changes in city leadership can accelerate the process. When the City of Grand Forks, North Dakota's new city manager and newly-elected council members agreed the city had wrung all the value from its former website, the communications department's long-standing funding request for a new website was quickly granted. "They told us they didn't like the old site and asked what we needed to launch a new site by the end of the year," said John Bernstrom, Grand Forks communication specialist. "It was great! I think it was a generational change; the newly elected council members were used to searching on the Internet and had significant expectations for our new site. It's now become standard practice to track our digital efforts and deliver a report to the City Council every two weeks. They find a lot of value in knowing what residents are viewing on the site."

The Vision-Box™ track record of more than 3000 Identity Management solutions deployed in over 30 countries and responsible for around 50 Million biometric enrollment processes for electronic documents was essential in delivering the new system’s diverse goals.

After having fully adopted the system, the driving license issuing process is much more streamlined and customer satisfaction is noticeable.” Jean-François Lennon, Vice-President for Global Business Development & Sales of Vision-Box highlights that, “Regitra is heavily committed to modernizing the services they offer their citizens.
