Public-Facing Forms

Eliminate the need for over-the-counter interactions by allowing citizens to submit forms right from your website.  Empower your staff through efficient digital workflows for processing submitted forms and communicating with citizens.
Department Examples

Office of the Clerk

Make your forms easier to use and more accessible for citizens. For Clerk's Departments this means faster processing times, fewer calls and emails, and less physical traffic. E-Signature and Payments make it possible for citizens to submit forms without stepping foot in City Hall.
