Optimized and integrated digital government services
Lugano, home to 63,000 inhabitants, is Switzerland’s ninth-largest city. Situated at the southern edge of the country, it is known for warm weather, its beautiful lake and a larger-than-average amount of celebrity citizens. The city started using Magnolia in 2011, with a massive migration project in 2014 that led to optimized and integrated digital government services.
In 2011, Tinext used Magnolia to re-create a digital government platform for the city of Lugano, including one main site and seven sub-sites. In 2014, with the help of Tinext, Lugano made a massive migration project to Magnolia’s latest release - Magnolia 5.3. This enabled it to create a multilingual integrated digital government platform, giving citizens, among other things, access to relevant documents and the ability to pay bills.
The migration from 4.5 to 5 proved to be a lot easier, as there are more scripts and resources available.
