About Savvy Citizen

Savvy Citizen enables municipalities to communicate directly with their residents via their mobile devices regarding alerts, meetings, notifications & much more.

Savvy Citizen was developed and is supported by Management Science Associates, Inc. (MSA). Savvy Citizen’s development team consists of active community residents and local government officials with a passion for solving an issue that plagues residents and local governments alike: resident awareness.

Prior to the development of Savvy Citizen, the development team sought feedback from residents, township supervisors, business managers, mayors, county commissioners, and tourism personnel to better understand the resident awareness problem and collect feedback on potential features and functionality. Leveraging this due diligence and best practices in smartphone app development, Savvy Citizen was born.

Services Provided

Savvy Citizen helps local governments ensure that their message is reaching residents. Notifications and events are pushed directly to residents via their preferred method. Unlike social media and other communication methods, governments can be assured that their message is received.

The user-friendly app enables governments to inform and engage with citizens, raise awareness about upcoming events, and create cross-community synergy.
