Irosoft Participates in Microsoft’s CityNext to Accelerate International Growth
Irosoft, world leader in Legislative & Regulatory Content Management and Document & Records Management, announced today that it is working with Microsoft on CityNext, an initiative designed to help governments, businesses, and citizens reimagine what is next for their cities. For the first time in history, more than 50 percent of the world’s population lives in urban areas, and nearly 70 percent of people will live in cities by 2050. This ongoing migration creates unprecedented opportunities, but also intensifies problems such as aging infrastructure, hazards to public health as well as safety, pollution, crime, and traffic. Through the CityNext initiative, Microsoft and Irosoft will help leaders to do “new with less,” by combining the power of technology with innovative ideas to connect governments, businesses, and citizens with city services that increase efficiencies, reduce costs, foster a more sustainable environment, and cultivate communities where people thrive.
As a specialist in integrated content management, Irosoft offers innovative and easy-to-use solutions that enable customers to simply and efficiently develop, organize, exploit, and preserve their information capital, including:
- Legislative & Regulatory Content Management: LIMS, its world-class solution, is the most used legislative information management system in the world. LIMS is a solution designed to help countries, states, provinces, and cities – large or small – manage the life cycle of their legislative documents, from drafting all the way to publication. Using open data standards and a powerful content management environment, LIMS helps jurisdictions throughout the world improve public access to their legislation as well as their overall production timelines and costs.
- Document & Records Management: its award-winning solution Docuthèque Enterprise along with its Paperless Meetings version are designed to help organizations create, modify, annotate, share, approve, publish, distribute, and archive electronic and paper content in order to achieve global information governance and preserve corporate memory. Docuthèque is natively integrated with Microsoft SharePoint and Office.
“Our participation in Microsoft CityNext demonstrates our commitment to helping cities innovate now and modernize for the future. Microsoft solutions will provide us with greater opportunities to help city customers transform their operations through familiar, secure technology and devices; engage citizens and businesses through social media and apps; and accelerate innovation opportunities through community development and workforce training programs,” said Alain Lavoie, president of Irosoft.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Irosoft on CityNext. Microsoft prioritizes putting people and partners first in our initiatives and CityNext is no different,” said Laura Ipsen, corporate vice president Microsoft Worldwide Public Sector. “Even though cities are feeling the strain from economic challenges, we believe a new era of innovation will create opportunities for people to utilize technology to accomplish what they never thought possible. We’re inspired by our diverse partner ecosystem and know that working together we can help cities realize their full potential.”
