City of Arlington Uses Esri Technology for New City Website

“Your City at Work” Dashboard Improves Transparency and Accountability for City Projects

 

REDLANDS, Calif.—June 28, 2019—Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, today announced that the City of Arlington, Texas, has released a new performance measurement dashboard on its city website. The new Esri technology-powered dashboard, called “Your City at Work,” is an accessible, dynamic tool that allows residents to see their tax dollars at work.

“The city’s new website has many features to provide a better customer service experience for our residents, businesses, and visitors,” said Jay Warren, director of Communication and Legislative Affairs for the City of Arlington. “The website features ‘Your City at Work,’ a visually appealing, intuitive, and informative dashboard provided by Esri.”

In years past, the City of Arlington had maintained a quarterly spreadsheet of performance measurements, but this data proved difficult for residents to access and digest. The new “Your City at Work” dashboard was created to make this data easy for users to find and understand.

“This platform has enabled Arlington to bring to life its standard scorecard to provide residents [with] a continually updated view of the value they are getting for their taxes,” said Warren. The dashboard features readily available information on the city’s goals and status regarding potholes filled, recyclables collected, 911 calls answered, and more.

“Since the dashboard feature already exists in our product offering, cities like Arlington have the ability to create a performance measurement dashboard without using staff hours to build one from scratch or buying a service specifically to get access to it as a feature,” said Richard Leadbeater, Esri’s state government industry manager. “This saves cities time and money, and that’s important to taxpayers.”
