mySidewalk Unveils Kansas City Insights Platform at Innovation Partnership Program Demo Day

The platform aims to develop and test technology that enhances Kansas City’s existing data and infrastructure

mySidewalk was one of five companies selected to partner with Kansas City, Missouri’s 2017 Innovation Partnership Program (IPP), which supports goals like economic development, sustainability, and operational efficiency through technical solutions.

At the close of the 12-week partnership, mySidewalk unveiled its Kansas City Insights platform as a solution for the City’s Office of Performance Management (OPM). The solution, built using mySidewalk’s city intelligence tool, aims to help the city save time processing and analyzing its data, improve operations by linking citizen satisfaction to outcomes that impact everyday life, and make results more accessible.

“Our goal is and always has been to work with cities that want to improve, innovate, and make better decisions alongside their residents. It’s exciting to be implementing that work with such a talented group who shares that same focus in our own backyard. We’re very excited about the work and, more importantly, the results ahead,” said Stephen Hardy, CEO at mySidewalk.

So are we, Stephen! The platform will be available in early 2018. Read the full press release here.
