The city needed accurate, real-time data to make important decisions on how to bring employees back to work and support active city employees.
With a population of 200,000, Akron, Ohio, is the state's fifth-largest city. With small-town charm, a surprising history including where the hamburger was possibly invented, and a legacy of music, this midwestern town has a lot to offer residents.
The city employs about 2,100 full-time and seasonal employees across all divisions. Like other cities and towns, Akron was thrust into uncharted territory when COVID-19 began spreading across the United States.
The city deployed Insights to improve access to information for city officials and offer more timely data. Insights has helped Akron transition to a more data-driven decision-making municipality.
