"The City of Barrie shares our vision, responding to its citizens’ preference to connect digitally with a commitment to elevate the customer experience. By providing its citizens with an innovative, modern portal, and its employees with an intuitive desktop solution, the city will reduce costs and improve its ability to engage with citizens across all channels."
