Washington, DC, May 4, 2020 – Elected members of the Illinois State Government are using iConstituent’s GovText platform (GovText.us). Given the need for clear and accurate communication, members of the Illinois State Government have turned to GovText to engage with their constituents. GovText allows members to engage with constituents both one-on-one and in broadcast, making them able to keep their finger on the pulse of the community, despite social distancing.
“Elected officials need a way to engage with their constituents, and GovText offers a way to communicate both quickly and effectively. By using a platform where each communication helps develop the big picture, officials can enhance their engagement despite social distancing,’ said iConstituent’s VP of Sales, Michael Cohen.
GovText is providing the Government of Illinois with a critical tool to connect, engage, and respond to citizens rapidly. Given the diverse urban and rural population of Illinois, GovText is ideal for providing pin-point communication with at-risk populations, simplifying case management, and allowing for critical alerts to be quickly broadcast to the affected people.
Founded in 2002, iConstituent provides innovative engagement tools for public officials to communicate with their constituents. The company’s portfolio of services offers practical ways for local governments to identify the critical needs of their citizens. iConstituent is used daily by Federal, State, and Local governments to map issues, identify key concerns, and prioritize their resolution.
