Three Ways Digital Technology Can Help Authorities Having Jurisdiction Improve Performance

While there are plenty of challenges that come with adopting new technologies, digital transformation isn’t an optional path — it’s a necessary path, especially if an AHJ wants to improve its workflow, recruiting and knowledge base.
