"We offer the City of Aspen our solid commitment to deliver success for this visible technology initiative - to implement a modern, Cloud-based, software-as-a-service solution that leverages the power of Oracle Cloud to help improve the quality and timeliness of information and most importantly, to enhance the quality of service provided to its citizens," stated Larry Hymson, Executive Vice President, CherryRoad Technologies Inc.
