Arcos Technologies Inc. Participates in CityNext

Arcos Technologies Inc. is committed to engaging government, businesses, and citizens to shape the next generation of cities

Arcos Technologies Inc., today announced it is working with Microsoft on Microsoft CityNext, an initiative designed to help governments, businesses, and citizens reimagine what is next for their cities. For the first time in history, more than 50 percent of the world’s population lives in urban areas and nearly 70 percent of people will live in cities by 2050. This ongoing migration creates unprecedented opportunities, but also intensifies problems such as aging infrastructure, hazards to public health and safety, pollution, crime, and traffic. Through the Microsoft CityNext initiative, Microsoft and Arcos Technologies Inc. will help leaders to do “new with less,” by combining the power of technology with innovative ideas to connect governments, businesses, and citizens with city services that increase efficiencies, reduce costs, foster a more sustainable environment, and cultivate communities where people thrive.

Arcos Technologies Inc. is a strategic Microsoft Dynamics Solution provider that bring together deep business, CRM, ERP and development expertise, coupled with market leading Microsoft technology solutions to help clients and partners attain superior organizational performance, accelerate in innovation and enhance the citizen and community experience while increasing productivity.  Arcos’ projects vary from strategic technology and business process consulting engagements to complex system integrations and custom developed solutions.

 “Our participation in Microsoft CityNext demonstrates our commitment to helping cities innovate now and modernize for the future. Microsoft solutions will provide us with greater opportunities to help city customers transform their operations through familiar, secure technology and devices; engage citizens and businesses through social media and apps; and accelerate innovation opportunities through community development and workforce training programs,” said Kent MacLean, Managing Director of Arcos Technologies Inc.

We are thrilled to partner with Arcos Technologies Inc. on Microsoft CityNext. Microsoft prioritizes putting people and partners first in our initiatives and Microsoft CityNext is no different,” said Rob Bernard, Microsoft Chief Environmental Strategist and noted cities strategist. “Even though cities are feeling the strain from economic challenges, we believe a new era of innovation will create opportunities for people to utilize technology to accomplish what they never thought possible.  We’re inspired by our diverse partner ecosystem and know that working together we can help cities realize their full potential.
