SAINT PAUL, Minn., Oct. 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GovDelivery, the leading provider of government-to-citizen communications, will unveil new mobile capabilities today at its annual event titled, "Digital Government: The Transformative Power of Communications." Communicators and technologists from across the federal government will convene at this free event to exchange best practices in leadership development, new technologies, and digital communications. A live web feed at http://bit.ly/DigiComm_webcast has been set up for those unable to join the conference in person. The event can also be followed on Twitter with the hashtag #GovD12.
In addition to these discussions around digital best practices, GovDelivery CEO and co-Founder, Scott Burns, will introduce attendees to significant enhancements to GovDelivery solutions, including GovDelivery MobileDCM.
With a long history of supporting mobile engagement through email and SMS, as well as real-time alerts often used by transit organizations to offer immediate SMS updates to customers, GovDelivery is launching MobileDCM, a mobile application that extends current administrators' digital communications workflow beyond the office. MobileDCM will allow GovDelivery clients to securely manage contacts, grow outreach by adding new subscribers, reach stakeholders and measure effectiveness anytime, anywhere from their iPhone and Android mobile devices. Through these new capabilities, government agencies can reach citizens, internal contacts, the press and other stakeholders while away from their desks, after hours or while performing their responsibilities in the field. Whether the communication is related to an emergency situation or fast moving, non-emergency circumstances like managing a press corps – government communicators will now have easy, fast and convenient mobile access to a digital communication tool to securely create, approve and send digital communications anytime, anywhere.

"At GovDelivery, we strive to leverage new technologies to help the public sector maximize their direct connections with the public, and our recent enhancements demonstrate this. We continue to focus on bringing increased value to the government employees charged with meeting mission goals by delivering the tools and best practices to help them effectively leverage all forms of digital media to reach and engage the public in order to capture this transformative opportunity."
