EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Sept. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Vision, a leading developer of software for local government, has been named one of the top 10 companies serving local government by Engaging Local Government Leaders (ELGL), a professional organization dedicated to connecting and educating innovative local government leaders. Vision was one of 50 companies recently recognized in the inaugural ELGL Choice Awards.
ELGL Choice Awards are based on two criteria: the number of nominations received by each company and an evaluation by the ELGL management team.
Vision's thought leadership and high quality websites, showcased in its online project gallery, were cited as reasons for the high ranking. ELGL members and Vision clients from the City of Glendale, Calif. and City of Sedona, Ariz. praised Vision staff for being accessible and willing to share information. ELGL judges claimed Vision "won our wonky hearts with their cool before and after pages that highlight revamped city websites."
The awards were promoted widely on social media, including a shout out from Mike Ekey, communications manager for the City of Raymore, Missouri, which recently launched its new Vision-designed website, raymore.com.
"No brainer that @visioninternet is one of @ELGL50's top ten #LocalGov partners!" Ekey tweeted.
"We are honored to receive such a ringing endorsement from ELGL members," said Ashley Fruechting, Vision's senior director of marketing who writes a monthly ELGL column sharing tips and trends in digital communications for local government. "Using a data-driven approach, we work with hundreds of cities and counties across North America to help make their services and information accessible and easy to use. Citizen expectations have changed and we're proud to be a resource for all local government leaders striving to meet those expectations and better serve citizens online."
Earlier this year, Vision was named to Government Technology magazine's GovTech 100, a listing of leading companies developing innovative or disruptive offerings to improve or transform government.
