PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwired - Apr 8, 2013) - More than 25 New Jersey towns and cities are using Revelstone™ Compass to better understand how their services departments are performing. These municipalities include Barnegat, Franklin Lakes, Medford, Morristown, Princeton, Roselle, Somerdale and many others.
"Our goal is to use performance management to help our services to be as efficient and effective as possible," said Timothy P. Dougherty, Mayor, Morristown. "Focusing on service delivery will help us make Morristown a place that our citizens will be proud to live in, work in and want to invest in."
Revelstone's affordable, web-based software makes it easy for mayors, city councils, town administrators and department heads to measure and analyze the performance of vital service departments such as Police, Fire, Public Works and more. For example, municipal officials and staff can look into Police and Fire call volume or response times and identify issues or patterns in order to make improvements in how they operate. The software also lets municipalities compare the performance of their services to towns and cities of similar size and demographics -- not just with neighboring municipalities. This information can help towns and cities to make changes and improvements to better serve their citizens.
Revelstone helps organizations answer three key management questions:
- How is my organization doing?
- What could we be doing better?
- How can we learn from our peers in order to improve?
"Revelstone provides managers with overall visibility into the performance of their organization through a centralized dashboard," said Mark Nelson, co-founder and COO, Revelstone. "Between rising service costs and tight budgets, it is vital that town officials make the right decisions around why and how to improve services. The best way to do this is to base those decisions on hard data and have this information at your fingertips when questions and issues arise."
Revelstone provides software to help organizations perform at their best. Revelstone Compass, a web-based performance analytics and benchmarking platform, empowers local governments to manage better, make smarter decisions and strengthen accountability to citizens -- leading to overall improvements in their communities.
