Recent Awards

City of Fort Collins was recognized the Exceptional Customer Service Award by the Colorado Government Association of Information Technology in the spring of 2015. 

The award was presented to the City of Fort Collins for the automation of utility service work orders. Through Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) technologies, and collaboration between members of the Utilities Customer Service team, Utilities IT staff and members of the City’s Web development team, the process for opening back office work orders to initiate new utility services or shut off services has been automated. This recently implemented automation process, combined with the Advanced Metering systems installed over the past few years, ensures a more streamlined process and faster service for the customer.
