Gloucester County Wins Award



From Index Cards to Full Enterprise System

September 6, 2012 By

Gloucester County, Va., a top-10 winner of the below 150,000 population category, received its 2012 Digital Counties award Sept. 4 at a meeting of county supervisors. The award was presented by Jackie Wasni of Motorola to Applications Integration Coordinator Scott Varner, who accepted it on behalf of the county and county staff.

Varner said it was a group effort, and that departments made the transition from using index cards in 2009 to a full enterprise system. "We took a bunch of old building inspectors," said Varner, "taught them how to use the product, and they embraced it."

"You even taught a 73-year old supervisor how to use the iPad," said one supervisor, who led the board in applause for the IT department. Gloucester County was also a top 10 county in the 2011 awards.

Conducted by the Center for Digital Government and the Digital Communities program — divisions of parent company e.Republic — in partnership with the National Association of Counties, the Digital Counties survey evaluates entrants on their ability to demonstrate successful outcomes through the strategic use of technology.
