Located in the heart of southeastern Michigan, with easy access to most major Detroit-area expressways, Southfield offers both a cosmopolitan, culturally diverse residential population and a thriving international business community.
The City of Southfield wanted to focus primarily on local business development and providing residents and visitors that are traveling to and through the city with this information. Therefore, their app delivers a variety of information for the high visibility businesses and venues in the Metropolitan Detroit area. With its highway sign graphics, users can easily find where to eat, stay, play and shop as well as events, and media provided in the city. Southfield provides its residents with a number of city services that they also highlight in the app such as a directory of city departments, area maps, tax and water bill information and links to pay online and the ability for citizens to report city maintenance issues.
The city has additional plans to continually update the app with new information and features using the Bar-Z online CMS and reiterative app update process that we offer.
