M.D. of Bonnyville awarded CARES Grant for regional mapping

We are happy to share the news that one of our customers, M.D. of Bonnyville, was recently awarded a Community and Regional Economic Support (CARES) grant to help integrate municipal information from four municipalities in their region.

Congratulations to the M.D. of Bonnyville for securing the grant, and for working towards improving municipal cooperation with an integrated GIS and mapping system. With this grant they will be able to add the Town of Bonnyville, the Village of Glendon, the Summer Village of Bonnyville Beach, and the Summer Village of Pelican Narrows into their mapping system.

Improving information security

At last week’s AUMA (Alberta Urban Municipalities Association) conference in Calgary, a session was hosted on the importance of cyber-security for municipal governments. At MuniSight, we are committed to keeping our customer’s information secure, and we are therefore continuously adding functionality to help keep information safe.

We are happy to announce that MuniSight: Advanced Edition has upgraded it’s user profile security. In our new version, each user will be required to create their own user profile, along with a password that meets a minimum standard of complexity rules. User’s will be prompted to create this new profile when logging in for the first time to MuniSight.

Our Support team is here to answer any questions that you may have about our commitment to information security, so feel free to reach out if you would like to discuss. support@munisight.com

Upon completion, Carter Place will be home to 58 families. The community will provide housing for those in need in the Edmonton region.

MuniSight has committed to encourage each employee to contribute 1% of their working hours, to a charity of their choice, in the form of volunteering.

Our team was happy to contribute our time to supporting this project, and we invite you to visit the Habitat for Humanity website (www.hfh.org/) to learn more about the program.

We would also like to thank our clients for supporting our Company’s mission of giving back to Albertan communities.

Our Purpose: Connecting and simplifying municipal information.

It has only been three months since our Company’s transition to MuniSight, but our team is already more excited than ever about the new potential that came along with the change.

MuniSight’s purpose is to connect and simplify municipal information. After consulting with customers, and our own team, this is the new purpose that we want MuniSight to embody.

We believe that when we connect and simplify your municipal information, we empower you to gain insights from your information, and allow you to make decisions that deliver more value to your rate-payers.

With a new purpose statement, comes a refreshed set of values. As a Company, we belive that it is important for us to share these values with our clients, so that you know what we stand for.

Respect – we maintain a high level of regard for the needs, wishes, and health of our clients, our community, and our team.

Integrity – we are guided by a clear sense of purpose that allows us to stand by our actions that have quality and authenticity.

Innovation – we strive to makes the lives of our clients simpler by being creative and agile.

At MuniSight, we have a purpose statement that defines why we exist, and values that guide our behaviours to enable us to deliver value to our clients on a daily basis.

We are excited about our refreshed focus, and we are looking forward to rolling out new, and improved, solutions (hint: shortly!) that will help you connect and simplify your municipal information!

Sincerely,

Quinten
