Terrell's New Website - the Tip of the Iceburg

Added July 1, 2017

Don't be fooled by the City of Terrell, Texas' new municipal website which was designed by Cave Consulting. Sure it is beautiful, easy to use, information rich and mobile-friendly. But behind the scenes, is where it really shines!

Fully integrated with the City's productivity platform (G Suite), each City Department controls their own website documents in a folder that will soon sit side by side with all of the rest of their documents and the website calendar already works with the same tool that controls their office calendars.

Now, instead of uploading "copies" of documents to their website, their "originals" are automatically available on the website as soon as they save them and instead of having to log in to a website editor to add calendar events, they can now do it the same calendar they use the office, which works in the browser and on the mobile device.


 

Cave Consulting was also able to show the City how to utilize built-in tools such as Google Drive to "streamline" their agenda posting and minute archiving processes. These improved processes are drastically reducing the time and effort currently needed to create, distribute and archive the documents.  



 

Because of Cave Consulting's mastery of the Google Ecosystem, Browser and Mobile device, they were also able to help the City automate many of their online PDF forms and setup notification subscription services with free G Suite applications such as Google Forms and Google Sites as well as free 3rd party applications such as MailChimp.



The City of Terrell was simply seeking a new website. What they got was a beautiful, professional and transparent website PLUS a new toolkit that will help them become more efficient and greatly increase their productivity, data security, and disaster preparedness, all through the browser and the mobile device.
