According to an interesting new study, Forres, governed by the Moray Council, has topped the list of places that best utilises smart technology such as electronic cards and computer technology.
This local administration uses a variety of electronic cards widely issued to residents and workers to deliver fast services to people across the district.
Ecebs, which is an East Kilbride based company, carried out the audit and praised the Forres administration for using development as a means to better serve the community.
David Burdett, managing director of the Ecebs firm said, "Moray Council should be applauded for its efforts in modernising local services, and it is not alone."
He further stated, "However, a large proportion of the UK's local authorities have still to truly embrace technology across multiple services," accordingto the Forres Gazette website.
There are various types of technology used in this district that include age identification card and bus passes for the disabled and the elderly. Other technology allows for the scheduling of public utility maintenance and repairs and meal cards for school-age children.
The study consisted of 100 local authorities all over UK and Scotland.
