Granicus Makes List of Top GovTech Providers for Fifth Straight Year

January 14, 2020 GMT

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 14, 2020--

Granicus, the leading provider of cloud-based software solutions and digital engagement services for the public sector, has been named to Government Technology magazine’s GovTech 100 list for the fifth year in a row.

The GovTech 100 recognizes companies that are making a difference in the ways that state and local government agencies operate and serve their constituents. With criteria grounded in strategic vision, innovation, and dedication to public sector customers, Granicus proudly accepts this significant recognition.

“At Granicus, we are incredibly fortunate to be working with the most innovative public sector leaders to deliver modern, secure SaaS technologies that are reshaping government services in a digital era and improving community outcomes,” said Mark Hynes, CEO of Granicus. “Utilizing modern platforms designed to maximize civic engagement, convenience, efficiency and satisfaction, our customers achieved better metrics and bigger targets while dramatically improving the relationship between government and the people they serve. We are proud to be defining the roadmap for government modernization, and honored to have our efforts recognized in the GovTech 100 for the fifth year in a row.”

As an example of Granicus’ industry leadership, the company’s acquisition of digital service transformation leader, Firmstep, was ranked fourth in a list of top ten most-mentioned stories on GovTech.com in 2019. Recognized as a global leader in government service automation, Firmstep digital services technology powered Granicus’ launch of its U.S.-based govService solution, a critical addition to the Granicus Civic Engagement Platform, helping government agencies transition from in-person, PDF-based, or labor-intensive processes to fully web-based, mobile, digital services — reducing time to service and cost of service.

Additionally in 2019 — building on the momentum of digital service delivery across local government — Granicus further expanded its Civic Engagement Platform to include market-leading short-term rental (STR) compliance management provider Host Compliance. By extending the platform to include digital STR permitting and automated compliance monitoring, Granicus empowers more governments to better monitor and manage the sharing economy.

“This recognition comes on the heels of a record year. Granicus rounds out 2019 with record sales results, 200 million citizen subscribers, continued investments in customer service, renewed FedRAMP authorization, key partnerships with organizations like Bang the Table and Carahsoft, and growth opportunities for our more than 600 employees. We share this recognition and the year’s success with the Granicus employees and our government agency partners who are leading the way to improve community outcomes through technology and service innovation,” added Hynes.
