WINDSOR, Ontario, April 18, 2018 /CNW/ -- InspireHUB Technologies (inspirehub.com) has been named the Innovation Winner in the 2018 Business Excellence Award sponsored by the Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce, recognizing their pioneering work with the IHUBApp. The IHUBApp helps organizations collaborate, communicate and measure engagement in one easy-to-use hub. InspireHUB was one of the first companies to use the leading-edge Progressive Web App Technology introduced by Google that is now being adopted by many of the largest companies in the world. PWAs allow users to engage app technology via a mobile browser URL without having to go to an app store.
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.”
Dallas Texas, September 20, 2016 – Today InspireHUB Technologies announced the release of their free whitepaper, ‘The Future of Civic Apps’. The latest whitepaper teaches civic administrators and elected officials how Progressive Web App technology can provide smart cities with the ability to meet numerous community engagement needs.
Creating native apps as a way to increase civic engagement has been an aspiration held by most cities and towns but the costs associated with development has been prohibitive for both large and small communities. How costly? Government Digital Service in Great Britain estimates it saved $8.2bn USD by opting to not use native apps over the last four years! In 2016, a significant technology shift happened with the arrival of PWA technology. These new robust Progressive Web Apps cost a fraction of traditional native apps and boast double-digit engagement numbers while offering many of the same features. This includes features such as: offline accessibility when there is no internet or Wi-Fi available, universal access across all hardware devices ensuring no constituents are inadvertently left out, and compliance with regulatory issues such as accessibility standards and election campaign adherence.
