Municipal leaders looking to expand their reach and increase civic engagement can connect with users through any web-enabled device with mobile apps.  Municipal apps, like the IHUBApp powered by InspireHUB Technologies, help cities thrive by providing the tools needed to improve both internal communications and productivity, while offering residents instant access to municipal data, services and leaders.
