City of Ottawa selects Lagan to power its Citizen Service

Sunnyvale, California – 11 May 2011 ‐ Lagan , a division of KANA Software, announced today that the City of Ottawa has selected its Government‐to‐Citizen (G2C) suite to power Ottawa’s Citizen Service Management solution – enhancing residents’ ability to access municipal services through various channels.

The $6.95‐million software and services agreement is the result of a comprehensive competitive RFP process which resulted in Lagan’s selection based on the company’s ability to meet the City’s requirements.

The Lagan‐powered solution creates a centralized, multi‐channel approach to accessing municipal services from the traditional service counter and 3‐1‐1 phone calls to using technological advances with social media and mobile devices. Since Lagan’s solutions have been designed specifically for the public sector, it has been already implemented by municipal governments around the globe. This ensures that the City is in an excellent position to take advantage of best practices of other large‐scale implementations.

Service Ottawa is a citizen‐centric approach that will deliver consistent, accurate, high‐quality services and information to Ottawa residents, while generating significant operational cost savings for the City. Ottawa City Council’s investment in new business processes and enabling technologies will result in operational savings of $40 million a year by 2014.

“From the start, the City of Ottawa set the bar high,” said Mark Duffell, CEO of KANA Software. “That’s why we are extremely proud to be their choice for the new Citizen Service Management solution. We look forward to working together to help deliver Ottawa’s vision for multi‐channel service experiences.”

Ottawa joins a growing list of major international cities, including Toronto, Brisbane, Houston, Boston, San Antonio, San Francisco, Aberdeen and Vancouver that have chosen the Lagan solution to manage citizen service interactions.
