Beacon™ is a quick, user friendly and affordable web portal blending searching, reporting, and mapping for every community. Used by hundreds of communities across the country, Beacon has become the standard in local government web portals.
Beacon™ is a quick, easy, and affordable web solution for all your community’s online, public, records needs. With smaller budgets and larger demand for services, local governments across the country are realizing the value in making their data available online for public and internal users. Beacon™ was designed to integrate the services provided by GIS and web-based data reporting applications by coupling multiple features into a single web application. Thus your organization increases in visibility and exposure, as well as increasing services to taxpayers.
Beacon™ is the solution that can be understood by various levels of users because of its user-friendly format. The need to access local government information often occurs outside of normal office hours, and Beacon provides robust access through the web and across mobile devices when and where the users need it.
Beacon™ is mobile
Office staff can take the information needed to the field, without cluttering up their backseat with paper and maps. Local governments will be able to provide their constituents the most accurate and timely information curbside, by allowing them to pull up Beacon™ on their phone or mobile device.
