1.Hoorn is the online work environment of the municipality of Hoorn. ‘’With 1.Hoorn we wanted to create an online environment for the neighbourhood teams and all the chain partners in the social domain before January 1st, 2015. Due to the sensitive nature of the information, we did not want to risk any mishaps. Specifically, the rights structure has to be very well organized.
We use cloud technology for the design of the 1.Hoorn work environment. Information must be easily shared, but also accessible on the road and other places. We have chosen MensCentraal as the basic application and SmartDocuments as the document creation software. Both are web-based because that makes us place and time independent.”
The SmartDocuments software for document creation has been in use by the municipality for some time now. Joris Wal, back-office employee: “Within Hoorn SmartDocuments is the document creation software. The corporate identity and all the text components that are needed are within SmartDocuments. Therefore, when we were working on the 1. Hoorn environment, we did not have to think twice. You want to create an environment where all stakeholders can go to a specific work area. Moreover, you want all communication to those stakeholders to be of high-quality and consistent.”
