In modern governments, ability for teams to communicate internal and with their citizenry is paramount. According to Pew Research, less than 20% of Americans trust their government to “do what is right.” Now, more than ever, governments need to accessible and act quickly to address public needs. Smartphones and rugged phones allow for effective communication. Strong communication builds trust with citizens.
According to GCN, government employees can't do their jobs effectively without their mobile devices. Smartphones enable employees to work more productively and effectively as well work remotely when needed. Agencies are increasingly issuing smartphones for staff members for the same increased usability.
Public works, social services, facilities and maintenance staff, bus drivers, law enforcement, fire and rescue, emergency medical services, and first responders often prefer a device that can withstand the harsh environments and active nature of their jobs. Rugged phones can offer many of the same benefits of smartphones with additional protection to safeguard your investment.
Federal and state grants are a vital part of the budget picture for nearly all public sector agencies in America. However, many of these agencies are understaffed or lack the expertise to properly assess, apply, and obtain critical grant funding. Understanding grant development or experience with grant programs can significantly increase their ability to leverage technology to advance their missions and enhance their impact on their communities.
The Premier Wireless Grants Support Program provides public sector agencies, educational institutions, and hospitals with grants information, customized funding research, and consultation that will help develop project ideas, get technology-rich projects funded, and even expand initiatives that are already in the works.
