Virtual City Hall

 

If you ask anyone in an organization, town or subdivision what their number one frustration is, they will probably say the lack of communication. With the increasing cost of postage, printing and manpower less information is readily available.

PCDATANET has designed a variety of websites to disseminate information to a large group of people with the ease of using the internet and email. We have created websites for the Boy Scouts of America, Subdivisions, City Alderman and other organizations.

Maintaining your website has never been easier when you use our web based administration. You can create/maintain news articles, poll the website membership for their opinion about almost any subject, have files available for download (maps, registration forms, etc) and email the website membership either by group or the entire population to inform them of an upcoming event.

With our low $450 setup fee and monthly rates starting at $69.95 per month, we can design a custom website to meet your needs. The monthly fee includes:

• 100 MB of drive space for web content
• Secure Database
• 10 Mailboxes

• 10 MB drive space
• Unlimited email alias’
• Easily modifiable website administration

We can register a domain name for your organization and provide secure 128 bit encryption for your web content or email viewing.

Our websites are based on security levels granted by you, the administrator. You have the flexibility of restricting the menus and frames that can be viewed by groups.

Most of the information is viewable by all, but requires the user to login before they can post news articles, vote on polls, etc. On the main page, viewers can read news articles and review previous articles. “Anonymous” users have a limited access to the website and its content.

Web Based Administration

 

Maintaining your website has never been easier when you use our web based administration.

Administrators can

  • create/maintain news articles,
  • poll the website membership for their opinion about almost any subject,
  • have files available for download (maps, registration forms, etc)
  • email the website membership either by group or the entire population to inform them of an upcoming event, public announcements such as street closings, drinking water hazards, school closings etc.

After a news article or poll has been published, the residents can provide their comments to the topic. The administrator can then review these comments and decide if they should be viewable to other subscribers on the site.

Knowing that there are a lot of people who do not have the knowledge to maintain a website, your website administrator can be anyone you choose, and you may have as many website administrators as you wish. As long as they know how to work a mouse and keyboard, they can maintain your site. It's that easy.

These are just a few of the features available on the website. If you would like more information please use the contact form and someone will contact you shortly.
