Michigan Government Representatives Gather to Learn How to Do More with Less
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. — Faced with declining tax revenue and continuous budget cuts, Michigan’s – and indeed the nation’s – city and county governments are constantly challenged to do more with less. Next month, officials from more than a dozen Michigan cities and counties will convene in Lansing, Mich., to learn from ImageSoft Inc., and their government peers, how to meet that challenge.
Roughly 100 government officials will gather for the ImageSoft Government Summit on June 4 at the Eagle Eye Conference Center to hear their peers discuss how they have streamlined operations, reduced costs, increased productivity and improved constituent services by automating internal processes.
ImageSoft Inc., of Southfield, will host the Summit. The company works with courts, government entities, healthcare institutions, insurance companies, educational institutions and manufacturers to create innovative, tailored technology solutions that enable them to operate more efficiently and effectively. Its product is the most widely deployed document management solution in counties and municipalities throughout Michigan.
“We can share our strategies for improving government workplace processes, but the message is much more impactful and carries far greater weight when it comes from their peers in government,” said Scott Bade, ImageSoft Inc., president. “They have endured similar challenges, faced the same struggles, and experienced the many benefits of automating their workplace, and they are eager to share their successes with their colleagues.”
Steve Kraai, director of records with the Ottawa County Sheriffs Department, and a presenter at the 2008 Government Summit agreed. “I can tell you 100% that my people would never want to go back to the old way of doing things, never, never, never” said Kraai.
At this year’s Summit, representatives from the City of Novi and Genesee and Ottawa Counties will discuss their strategies for improving internal businesses processes and their experiences with adopting electronic processes and a paperless work environment.
The day-long Summit will begin at 9:45 a.m. and conclude at 4 p.m. The event, which includes continental breakfast and lunch, costs $125, but is free to ImageSoft customers. For details or to register for the ImageSoft Government Summit visit www.imagesoftinc.com
