North Adams New Website Has Officially Launched
Today North Adams launched the city’s brand new website. The new site was scheduled to launch on Monday but like most projects had a slight delay. The former website was more than 10-years old and did not received many updates over those years.
A previous post at iBerkshire.com quoted the city’s Chief Information Officer Mark Pierson from the post… "The current city website has a lot of shortcomings. First and foremost is security. The site is very vulnerable, it is hard to navigate, it is not modern at all. You cannot resize this for a tablet, a phone, it's very clumsy."
Some of the features that will benefit North Adams residents include; meeting and notices, payment center, contacts, community calendar, a visitors section, a business section, a "how do I" section that addresses a number of topics residents may have questions about. Everything from dog license information to building permits are available. There is also a special informational link with updates on Covid-19 .
The site was created by Revize of Troy, Michigan. The company according to the iBerkshire.com post redesigned Pittsfield’s website back in 2017. The price tag for the site was just over $20,000 and includes support for 1-year. Annual maintenance and support will cost $2,400 per year starting the second year of the deal.
The site launched this morning and you can check it out by clicking this link.
