Greater Napanee, Ontario, May 1, 2017 – Greater Napanee is the proud hometown of Avril Lavigne and Leroy Blugh. Now it is making news for being amongst the first municipalities in North America to use the latest in Progressive Web App Technology to help promote and engage its residents around their summer festivals and events.  The Town of Greater Napanee is located in Ontario, Canada and worked with InspireHUB Canada (a subsidiary of InspireHUB Technologies, the creator of the IHUBApp) to find a unique way to communicate with stakeholders.

“The Town has been looking for ways to communicate quickly and promote special events in a cost-effective manner for some time now,” explains Ray Callery CAO of Greater Napanee. “What we found with this product is that it is easy to use from both the content development and end user perspective. As soon as we developed the content for one event, staff had identified hundreds of possible uses for interacting with our residents, businesses and visitors. The IHUBApp offers huge potential and is very cost effective for smaller municipalities trying to improve two-way communication. The fact that it uses Progressive Web App technology gives us many additional benefits and allows easy user access on your phone, laptop, tablet and other browser enabled devices.”

The IHUBApp comes standard with a number of features and tools aimed at increasing community engagement including the ability to: participate in real-time polls and surveys,  register for events, create private channels for sensitive communications, determine the frequency of notifications, promote fundraising and volunteer opportunities, along with allowing all users the ability to upload their own content for sharing through the app.
