Google has listed Denver as one of its 50 eCities for 2015, recognizing the Mile High City for having the strongest online business community in the state.
“These cities’ businesses are using the web to find new customers, connect with existing customers and fuel their local economies,” according to Google’s eCity Awards web site.
The website notes that the city of Denver makes it easy for residents to get information about city services from their mobile devices or desktops with the PocketGov tool. With the tool, residents can ask City Hall questions, check trash pick-up schedules and find property values.
Google and independent research firm Ipsos MORI analyzed the online strength of local small businesses in cities in all 50 states. The city with the highest score in each state was designated a Google eCity.
