City Government Moves to Efficient, Environment-Friendly Paperless Meetings

Free registration required

Executive Summary

City commissioners in Bergen, Norway, used to bring as many as 500 pages of paper documents to each of their biweekly meetings. Although case managers created the documents electronically, commission secretaries made at least 20 copies of each case for meeting attendees. In response to a challenge to reduce the city's impact on the environment, the City of Bergen moved to paperless meetings using a document management and storage solution built on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Microsoft Office OneNote 2007. Bergen developed this new solution, called 360? Politician's Workplace, in partnership with Microsoft and Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Software Innovation.
