CivicActions named to GovTech100 top companies list

GovTech100 BadgeCivicActions was named to the Government Technology and e.Republic Labs 2017 GovTech100 list of the “leading 100 companies focused on government as a customer, having developed an innovative or disruptive offering to improve or transform government, or having created new models for delivering services.”

Changing the way government works – and directly improving the lives of citizens – has been the driving force behind CivicActions. Through an open, agile, and transformative approach, we aim to continue the trend towards government services that are not just satisfactory, but delightful.

It’s good to see a list of 100 companies that share similar goals. Paul Taylor, chief content officer at e.Republic, in a release announcing the GovTech100, says the future of the state and local government market is looking bright.

“GovTech companies are the new face of digital government. Alone and in partnership, they are proving to be nimble in responding to and anticipating the needs of public agencies in a season of rapid change — technologically, socially and politically.”

CivicActions is proud to be working alongside this dynamic group of companies that are collectively focused on helping governments serve their communities better.
