How do I turn it on?
Politicians in Vennesla replaced paperwork with the iPad, but the transition was not easy for everyone.
“It is of course like a big smart phone, so I think it should go smoothly,” says Berit Kittelsen (Ap), as she searches for the button on the iPad. After a few tries and some help from Celina Hagen (CDP), she manages to turn the screen on.
“Now it’s on, so now it’s going to be fine,” she says, smiling happily.
Eivind Drivenes (H) quickly found the map applications for his Ipad and he believes that these will be some of the most important tools for municipal innovation.
“We have had many bad maps before. Now we finally have decent maps,” he said.
He believes the municipality will save close to 100,000 million NOK in paper savings over the next four years, since all municipal documents are to be used through the iPad.
After a few false starts, Mayor Torhild Bransdal finally got the measure passed. She is convinced that it will make life easier for the politicians.
“I see only plus sides to this. Although there certainly will be some teething problems at first,” she says.
