Increase Trust and Transparency With Public-Facing Documents

PowerDMS helps the public sector share crucial information with their communities, simplifying the process by giving control to document owners.

December 29, 2020

Transparency and trust are essential for government and public safety to create an effective and strong community. In fact, many states have laws mandating certain documents – such as policies and procedures – be made available to the public.

However, the time and resources required to post the documents, and keep them up to date, can be costly. Files need to be collected, server space needs to be acquired, and someone needs to ensure the latest revisions are given to IT for upload.

Despite your best intentions – the process can be rather tedious.

A Better Way

With PowerDMS, there is a better way.

Our Public-Facing Documents feature allows you to publish documents to the public, all from the same, best-in-breed document management solution where you are already storing, editing, and distributing your crucial information.

The best part? The process can be managed without IT involvement.

The process is easy. After enabling this premium add-on, simply change the document settings to Public, and a dedicated URL will be created and anyone in the public can access the file directly from our servers. You also get your own webpage with links to all the documents you’ve made available, organized in folders just like in PowerDMS.

You control which files are shared. You control how they’re organized. And you control how your community accesses your files.

To make things even easier, every time you publish a new version of a file in PowerDMS, it is automatically updated on your public website. No more waiting for IT. No more out-of-date files. You are in control.
