This is you'll ever need!
Stay up-to-date and current with the latest technologies and trends!
We can ensure that it stays current forever only if you upgrade to TownCMS v5, which is is the last website upgrade you'll ever need!
Since we originally launched your municipal website many years ago, we have invested heavily in developing a new platform that gets better each year, which benefits you.
Indirectly we have also become one of the largest municipal web design and hosting companies in America. This means you also get access to all the world class services and features listed below on this page.
If I had to sum up three of the most important features for you in upgrading to TownCMS v5, it would be the following :
- A mobile-friendly website (so any device can visit it)
- ADA 508 compliant (so that anybody with a disability can access your content)
- Automatically receive updates/upgrades/bug fixes for no additional fee. (thus keeping your total cost of ownership extremely low.)
Comprehensive Website Hosting
We take of your websites hosting to make sure your site is always available with at least 99.9% uptime!
Every municipality gets full daily backups which are stored off-site. Never worry about having your site go down again.
Guaranteed 99.9% Uptime
For municipalities that request an SLA (Service Level Agreement) for website hosting uptime, we can provide that as part of your hosting contract with 99.9% uptime guarantee.
Should your website ever go down for unexpected reasons, we can take care of restoring your site in a short time.
All municipalities get SSL (Secure Socket Layer) Security on your site so that it runs using HTTPS.
Hack-Proof Web Design
Your site will be hack-proof to prevent unauthorized access from logging into your site.
All your official government documents like Meeting Minutes & Agendas are stored and collated by category. Residents can quickly search and find the information they're looking for.
Residents can Subscribe to Your Site Notices
Your residents can subscribe to your website and get updates. They can pick and choose which topics to get notices about and they can get updates via email and/or text message. Whenever you post something new, your residents will instantly get notified.
When there is an urgent message or notifications, it will be displayed prominently on your homepage, and also sent to all subscribers (via email/text message) and posted to your Facebook page.
Instant Notification to Subscribers
People who subscribe to your website can get instant notifications via email and/or text message, which shows links directly to the item posted. We also make it easy for anybody to 1-click unsubscribe. That way you don't need to manage the subscription preferences of any of your residents.
Accept Online Credit Card Payments
We can offer an online payment system where your residents can pay for things like dog license, permits/applications and even tax payments online.
ADA 508 Compliance
All sites are ADA (Americans Disability Act) 508 Compliant, which allows people with disabilities to access to the content and files on your website.
