LOS ANGELES, Calif., Feb. 11, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Civic Resource Group International (CRG) is delighted to announce their appointment as Associate Partner in the Smart Cities Council. CRG will participate with the Smart Cities Council as a technology solutions provider and a champion of the “Smart Cities” concept of “digital” transformation by providing solutions that streamline the traditional organization and management of urban living for communities and constituents.

“Technology can transform a city — but only if it is applied thoughtfully and carefully in service to a city’s long-term vision. That’s why we are so pleased to have CRG’s process and planning expertise on the team. They are experts in gaining full value from technology investments,” says Jesse Berst, the Council’s Founder and Chairman.

CRG’s accomplishments in major “smart” sectors include public transportation, environmental/utilities, tourism/economic development and health care. CRG’s mission “Fulfilling the Promise of Technology” is perfectly aligned with the Smart Cities Council’s vision of “a world where digital technology and intelligent design have been harnessed to create smart, sustainable cities with high-quality living and high-quality jobs.”

“As people, businesses, communities and ‘things’ become increasingly connected, the broad public sector has to extend beyond its traditional boundaries. The new ‘smart’ sector is rapidly emerging and the mobile citizenry are fully embracing it. This is an exciting time for us at CRG to be delivering new technology, that both supports and shapes ‘Smart’ living,” says Gregory G. Curtin Ph.D., CRG’s Founder and CEO.

By teaming with the Smart Cities Council, CRG plans to actively contribute its thorough knowledge of the “smart” sector. The two organizations share a common goal: Accelerate and facilitate the public move to smart, sustainable cities. CRG’s award-winning flagship product CivicConnect™ is designed for use by the broad public sector and has proven to be a vital “smart transformation” agent.
