I met with the Utah Product Management Council today and we discussed the need to develop information and applications that are more friendly to wireless PDA users. Every department discussed ideas for citizen-facing and employee services that might be in demand by mobile users. UDOT has already implemented an electronic field book application that is in use by contractors and employees who are using IPAQs. Other potential DOT applications for mobiles might include commuterlink, customer service log (requests for service such as pot holes, roadkill, etc.), and field inspections. Here's what Virginia offers currently for mobile users.
Our online help is creating a greater need for interaction between departments to resolve online issues and UII has created an admin function to facilitate it. Salt Lake City is also now participating in the live help network that will support our One-stop Business Registration and Utah Business Portal.
As of yesterday, no additional fees are charged for online vehicle registration. We had 1200 online renewals yesterday. Motor Vehicle Dealer orientation and certification courses are available through the Mountainland Applied Technology College. Mountainland delivers online courses through ed2go which supports about 1,200 colleges and universities.
