ExAM Trailmix for City and Local Governments

MB&A partners with large US government agencies like the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Veteran Affairs, and the Department of Agriculture to streamline processes that provide public housing in communities, monitor food safety, and support veterans and their families. Increasingly, local and city governments are also adopting cloud technologies to better serve their residents.

While digitally transforming city and local government services is no small feat, SaaS platforms like Salesforce allow admins to create customized apps and portals using low-code or even no-code technologies.

Here are just some of the ways that ExAM and Salesforce can help city and local governments digitize their processes:

  • Streamline routine services like licensing, permits, and local tax collection
  • Build accessible customer portals to engage with local residents
  • Maintain physical security and standards – vital for all levels of government
  • Create and send customized documents and reports
  • Transform the government employee experience and expedite administrative timelines
  • Generate customized data collection and learning experiences for employees and residents
  • Manage facilities and assets

How can I learn more?

The best way to learn how Salesforce can help your government organization is to complete some basic Trailhead modules. Trailhead is Salesforce’s free learning resource that teaches users everything from creating customized fields to building complex lightning apps. Since Trailhead is free to use, it’s a great way to get accustomed to Salesforce best practices and capabilities before adopting Salesforce for your organization. 

Trailmix for City and Local Governments

We’ve put together a tailored Trailmix (a learning path made up of Trailheads) to help you understand the power of adopting Salesforce for city and local governments. This Trailmix focuses on creating customer portals, automating approval processes, and ensuring data security and validity within your database.
