Schaumburg placed fifth in the 12th annual Digital Cities Survey of e.Republic's Center for Digital Government and Digital Communities Program.

Top-ranked cities in the national survey reduced overtime with new technology, reduced hardware costs and developed an app that will keep track of what users are doing to reduce power and fuel consumption. The highest-ranked cities in the survey also show that consolidating and enabling shared services created huge cost savings and new citizen engagement tools increased citizen feedback and improved services.

"This award symbolizes the village's commitment to leveraging technology in every aspect of the organization in an effort to maximize efficiency, reduce cost and provide top-notch service," Director of Technology Peter Schaak said. "The village and the Information Technology Department take great pride in providing the best and most fiscally responsible technology services and support possible."
