LISTSERV: From Cities to Congress

For decades, LISTSERV has provided vital communication infrastructure for dozens of local, state and national government institutions. The signature security, list capacity and archiving capabilities of LISTSERV have allowed it to become the industry standard solution in government, from local municipalities to the U.S. House of Representatives.

At a national level, LISTSERV delivers essential information to American taxpayers, helps organize legislative logistics and procedures and supports the internal organization of complex governmental staffs.

On a smaller scale, local governments occupy almost every area of public life. LISTSERV has the flexibility to support this rich variety of endeavors, such as weekly parks and recreation newsletters, road and traffic alerts or neighborhood discussion groups.

All of these important communications are distributed safely and efficiently. The anti-virus and security measures of LISTSERV have helped to keep all sensitive information protected. Plus, LISTSERV has archiving capabilities for recordkeeping of important communications.
