One Community – One Platform

A smart city is about more than technology. A truly smart community cares about its people. CityFront is smart city technology that uses an array of artificially intelligent tools within its integration platform to connect everyone within your community. You and your community are always our focus. Smart city technology is the tool to bring everyone together.

The only app your community will ever need

Integrations that connect your systems

Our app platform includes several standard modules to help your community easily create 311 service requests, an intelligent “Ask the city” module with natural language processing, video and voice interpretation services, news and events integrated with your website CMS, Local Yelp® restaurants and business listings, and a notifications module being delivered early in 2020 that will be integrated with Esri ArcGIS. Other modules such as smart parking, smart permitting, Augmented reality, can be integrated based on the needs of your community.

Think of our platform as an integration and configuration engine that can work the way your community works and be built to suit your needs. As an added bonus, we license our platform as a service and can train your team to extend your community app to further tailor it fit your community.

Smart 311

Image recognition for truly intelligent community service requests

Integrate into existing work order systems

Automate 311 processing. Take a picture of a pothole and we know its a pothole, therefore we know what system to report it to. We can even create the work order.

Ask the city

Ask the city anything and our NLP engine will bring back the answer

Natural Language Processing

Who’s the mayor? – When’s trash pickup? – What are the library hours? – All answered without having to dig through your website

220+ Languages

Your staff will have access to thousands of interpreters with a tap of their finger

Professional video or voice interpreters in a matter of seconds

Tap on the screen and your staff will be seeing, and speaking with an interpreter within seconds on any device. We even have sign language experts standing by. Learn more

Esri Maps

Access to all your GIS data can be fully integrated into our platform

Fully integrated GIS mapping

As an Esri Parter, we can customize your GIS data to provide unlimited user experiences through our platform

Smart Parking

Intelligent video analytics reveals where parking is available in your community

Know where parking is available

Guide users to the nearest parking spot, garage or lot with AI and Esri maps integrations. Learn more

Augmented Reality

See underground service lines or your new library before you break ground

Subsurface infrastructure revealed

With integrated AR, your staff can locate subsurface service lines and showcase new buildings or parks before you break ground. Learn more

Smart FOIA

Minimize staff time running down simple and repetitive requests

Enable real-time processing for simple FOIA requests

Free up staff time and let us mine your database of permits, inspections, and other common open records queries

Smart Permits

Intelligent permitting for your residents with Esri integrated permitting

Residential permitting with ease and fully integrated

Simplify the residential and light commercial permitting and approvals with quick and easy integrations

Smart Notifications

Notifications that are relevant, timely and integrated

Notify your community the way they expect

With Esri and other 311 integrations, we can build a customized notifications hub for your community

We make your life easier

Artificial Intelligence Simplified

Artificial intelligence (AI) is leveraged throughout our platform to empower your community to submit service requests, ask questions and get relevant answers, receive alerts based on their location, get invited to events based on previous behavior, and in many other ways. It is always running and always learning based on the way your users engage with the system, making it the preferred method of engagement for your community.

  • Image recognition that is specific to cities and which continually learns

  • Natural language processing (NLP) that is the Siri® or Alexa® for your cities digital data
  • Video analytics processed on the edge for real-time data and reduces costs

  • Intelligent notifications based on Esri GIS data, as well as user preferences

Future of Interoperability

Interoperability will be the key to unlock what a smarter city will look like in the next decade. With hundreds of thousands, if not millions of sensors, data collection devices, legacy systems, newly acquired technologies, and everything in between, your community will need a platform that can integrate these systems and data, and enable them to work together.

Smart city technology is evolving quickly, and you need a platform that can handle these systems to engage your community. We have that platform and can prepare you for the future of interoperability!

With interoperability comes:

  • Unified Bill Payment using a single platform across all systems

  • Smart Parking to identify open parking spots closest to your desired destination

  • Smart Permitting leveraging robotic process automation to complete residential permit applications

  • Smart water metering for insights into usage and user notifications

  • Integrated 311 work orders

  • Website data integrations

  • Share data with departmental silos

  • Streamline workflows with robotics process automation (RPA)

  • Anything else you can dream up!

Our View

From a technology standpoint, the typical view from our communities looks like a maze of systems where some systems interface with each other and others don’t. Apps seem to be single use solutions provided as an afterthought by the legacy technology vendor, and there are either too many apps for citizens to download or the lack of an app for a specific need.  

CityFront’s view is quite different. We believe your community needs one view of the city through a single, unified app. The CityFront Experience is that app. Our platform interfaces with legacy city systems providing a unified view of your community. Our platform enables you to move into this unified view at your pace, whether you are onboarding new smarter city systems or are ready to interface with an existing one.

We understand how your community’s technology was built and inherited over time. We also understand it may take some time to get to a unified view, and we are in it for the long-term. We are the technology partner that makes you and your community smarter, which makes life easier for everyone.

Who Are We?

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy at CityFront is simple yet powerful. We believe there should be a simpler way to engage with your community using the latest devices and technology available, and it should just work. We believe there should be one user experience regardless of how we engage with our community. One app – One interface that is fully integrated into every system we access to do business with the community. One place to pay our bills, report a pothole, find a local business, ask questions, get information, see notifications, get a permit, reserve the park pavilion, and countless other areas of interactions.

Lastly, we believe in transparency and inclusivity. At CityFront, we realize that connecting people in the community builds stronger communities, and stronger communities improves the quality of life for everyone.

Come join our journey and start connecting with your community in the ways they want to connect with you!
