FOLSOM, CA – April 22, 2020 — Visionary Integration Professionals (VIP) today announced that it has partnered with the City of Sacramento to design and implement Salesforce as the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solution for their 311 service. The City launched the new platform this week.

The new app and web portal improve transparency and user experience while providing residents, visitors, and businesses easy access to city services. By fully integrating with GIS and all City work order systems used by 311, this new CRM will streamline the call intake process and make it easy for 311 Customer Service Agents to identify duplicate requests, find City assets, and quickly field calls. 

“Sacramento’s 311 system serves an increasingly critical role in enhancing collaboration and effectiveness between the government and its citizens,” said Maria MacGunigal, CIO at City of Sacramento. “311 is the City’s front door, and by far the most frequent touch point with our community. We are very excited to build this modern system that will improve the efficiency and speed at which the City can provide seamless support and service through multiple channels.”

Currently, 311 handles approximately 1,500 service requests per day. Typically, 250 of these requests originate from the web or mobile app. Citizens can now download the newest 311 app from the App Store and Google Play.

“We are honored to partner with the City of Sacramento for this important project,” said Jonna Ward, Chairman & CEO of VIP. “311 is an important single point of contact for City of Sacramento government services. We are pleased to have a role in helping citizens efficiently discover the information they need.”
