The municipality of Maastricht opts for internet agency Betawerkjuly 13, 2019
Parties are going for a long-term collaboration on the subject ‘online’
The corporate website of the municipality of Maastricht is due for replacement and the growing number of project websites of the municipality requires more and more management. The municipality therefore looked for an agency for sustainable cooperation in the field of websites. She recently found this in Betawerk, resident of the Brightlands Smart Services Campus, via a European tender.
One solution for all websites
The security and accessibility requirements of government websites are becoming increasingly strict. This results in an increase in management tasks and potential risks for the dozens of websites of the municipality of Maastricht, in addition to the corporate website. To simplify this management and to guarantee safety and quality, Betawerk is realizing an ecosystem of websites with which the municipality of Maastricht can easily realize new websites. This multisite solution also contains a quality management solution that guarantees accessibility and topicality of information as part of a decentralized editorial model of the municipality. The corporate website www.gemeentemaastricht.nl will go live in autumn 2019 as the first product of this ecosystem.
"With Betawerk we ensure that the municipality of Maastricht can bring its information provision for, services to and participation with citizens, companies, visitors and students to a higher level, both in terms of content and function, at a lower cost." Albert Royen, Information Manager Municipality of Maastricht
The importance of a good online service environment is becoming ever greater. The current municipal website of Maastricht has become the primary communication platform and preferred channel for services to residents and businesses. The communication of municipal projects is more dependent on their online reach. From a partnership, Betawerk helps the municipality of Maastricht with the digital challenges of today, and those in the future.
Martijn Hermans, director of Betawerk: "We are happy with the confidence that the municipality of Maastricht has in us. We are at the drawing board, so that we can optimally help them with their digital transformation and increase their digital maturity level."
