How Automation Can Benefit Local Governments

Across the country, cities are struggling to do more with less. The coronavirus crisis demands more of cities than ever before at a time when cities are experiencing unprecedented interruptions to their revenue streams. To engage their citizens effectively during this pandemic, cities need to simultaneously generate new revenue and streamline their services.
