“We have chosen Citizenlab as a partner because they provide a plug-and-play system that doesn't require a very technical background to get started. As a smaller municipality, it is good that we can focus our resources on getting the platform out to the citizens. Moreover, we are pleased with the ongoing dialogue we have with CitizenLab about adapting and developing the platform so that it also fits the political reality in a Danish municipality. The team is very responsive to new ideas and thoughts.”
