Winston-Salem, NC -- A recent poll of the Top 10 Most Technology-Advanced Cities recognized a Triad city for the 11th year in a row.
Winston-Salem ranked 3rd on the Center for Digital Government's list among cities with a population of 125,000 to 249,000. The group bases its research on how local governments use technology. This year they focused on how cities use technology when money is tight.
"Cities that are investing in technology are seeing tremendous cost savings that are critical to operations and their ability to meet higher demand for services," said Todd Sander, director of the center's Digital Communities Program. "These cities are true innovators and we applaud them as they work in the spirit of collaboration to provide extraordinary value to constituents despite budget setbacks."
Center for Digital Government noted Winston-Salem's digital initiatives during the past year citing their use of cloud computing, a digital purchasing and approval system, collaborative geographic tools between the city and county and upgrades to their emergency resource system.
Other North Carolina towns made the top 10 list including Charlotte and High Point. Charlotte ranked seventh place among cities with a population of 250,000 or more; High Point placed seventh for cities with a population of 75,000-124,999.
