calgary.ca launched. Canada’s first search based government site

Citizens of The City of Calgary now have their own search based website to turn to if they need to find information and services quickly and easily.

calgary.ca, a site which uses Microsoft SharePoint and Google search technology, has been officially launched after it received positive feedback from Calgarians after a public preview from August 8 to 12. Few problems were reported and positive comments on social media were reasons good enough for The City of Calgary to believe that they were on the right track with the website.

The site, which came into being in 2002, was originally developed to meet the growing demand of citizens requesting civic information online. Last year, the website reached over 9 million visitors. And after almost a decade of its inception, the site has come forth, all revamped in such a way that citizens and customers can find what they are looking for easily.

The City of Calgary hired Infusion Development through a competitive bidding process to complete development work on the website. Infusion Development not only created custom feed-engine to enable smart searching, it also built an extensive mapping suite, a completely optimized mobile experience, and online forms, thus bringing forth a revolutionary way for the community to communicate with the government.

The launch of the revamped site shows how eGovernment is now a possibility. With more services and information online, future advances in technology, better services and communication with Calgarians are on the cards for The City of Calgary for sure.
