HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 16, 2015) - NEAD, Inc. -- a custom software solutions and database systems developer of more than 200 apps for iPhone, Android and iPad -- today announced the launch of MyCivic Apps, the most comprehensive, cost-effective platform to provide city governments, public works, chambers of commerce, businesses and local organizations with innovative tools to build muni-mobile applications, citizen-relationship management systems and responsive websites that allow residents and visitors instant access to information that matters most. Evolving from the first-of-its-kind MyCity Mobile founded in 2010, and inspired by a desire to build better, stronger communities, MyCivic Apps connects citizens -- and allows them to communicate in real time -- with city hall and beyond, using mobile and cloud technology to transcend antiquated brick and mortar bureaucratic processes.
"George Bernard Shaw once said that the single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place," says T.J. Sokoll, founder of Orange County-based NEAD, Inc. and MyCivic Apps. "There's probably no better example of this than in our growing cities. With the number of mobile devices exceeding the population, it's not only logical to use them as a bridge to create better cities and improve communication, but it's also a convenient and eco-friendly solution to eliminate paperwork, enact change and reduce time spent waiting in lines."
The innovative and 100 percent customizable features of MyCivic Apps include smart forms that allow citizens to pay municipal bills, file for licenses and permits and report a lost pet, power outage, hazardous debris on a highway or suspicious activity in a neighborhood -- all from the convenience of their mobile phones. Push notifications geo-targeted to citizens based on their location provide relevant, up-to-the-minute information on local events, weather and road conditions, places of interest and special promotions. By enabling instant access for residents and visitors to local city officials, business owners and each other for one-on-one communication, MyCivic Apps makes everything from broadcasting a public service announcement to reporting, responding to and resolving any community issue achievable in minutes -- rather than weeks or months -- from any location, at any time. MyCivic Apps also offers municipal and union customers responsive website development with the added value of convenience, simple user interfaces and cost efficiency.
"If communication leads to community, great communication will lead to great community. MyCivic Apps truly has the potential to strengthen our cities by bringing people and local governments together with engaging solutions that make life easier," says Sokoll.
