A cutting edge one-stop-shop for information on living, working, visiting and doing business in Limerick
Earlier in 2017, Limerick City and County Council launched of a ground-breaking digital platform that acts as a one-stop-shop for information on living, working, visiting and doing business.
With its economic renaissance already anchoring the Mid-West as Ireland’s fastest growing region, the newly developed integrated digital platform – Limerick.ie – is a dynamic window to all key information about life in the resurgent the city and county. Limerick.ie is the most advanced digital platform of its kind developed by any Irish local authority, integrating over 15 sites in one comprehensive location.
The Limerick.ie site aims to build a new ‘Digital Limerick’. It provides citizens with all information about services the local authority offers but also acts as an official guide for those visiting the city and county and for people and organisations, including inward investors who want to do business in or with Limerick.
The previous Limerick.ie attracted 800,000 unique visitors every year; the new digital experience platform is expected to break the 1m unique visitor barrier per annum within three years. The site is based across three easily navigable pillars – Discover, Business and Council – yet has thousands of pages to explore in what is the biggest single online portal for any local authority in Ireland.”
The site has been designed around its users so that each have their own private log-in in a ‘My Limerick’ section. This enables them to create an individualised profile of interests, build itineraries on what to see and do in Limerick and see all their business dealings with the Council.
The new platform is fully mobile ready and features more than 2,000 attractions, services, community groups and businesses with more than 1,000 Limerick events currently listed on the site, from social events to council meetings, while an estimated 2,000 new Limerick events will be published on the site every year. There is also a feedback option on each page so that the local authority can continuously improve the service.
Furthermore, Limerick.ie will also receive and publish relevant content from members of the public and in doing so will act as a promotional tool for organisations across the city and county.
