On October 11th, 2018, Peter Bethlenfalvy, MPP for Pickering-Uxbridge and President of the Treasury Board Secretariat, paid his visit to Ontario's own tech-hub, Communitech to learn more about is happening in Canada in the digital age. One of the stops he made on his hour long tour was Local Line.
Local Line is an e-commerce platform for food suppliers who sell direct to customer. The service increases order volume, modernizes customer service, and organizes fulfillment. Bethlenfalvy received a demo of the software and noted the applicability and modernity of the program.
When commenting on the future for digitalization in the Canadian government, Bethlenfalvy notes to Communitech News:
“[Digitization] was one of the first things in the EY report. We’ve seen across the globe: Governments apply services on a digital basis to make the customer experience often better at a lower price point. You want the customer experience to be higher.
These are the people developing products and services that will enable that. So I’m very encouraged by everything I’ve seen today.”
