We’re proud to build software solutions that fit the needs of communities of all sizes — from villages of 100 to counties of millions. We’ve created the industry’s first Civic Experience Platform, which local governments leverage to deliver municipal services to residents in personalized, one-stop, and frictionless ways. As a result, our customers tell us they now have an empowering, effective, and easy way to get things done — and positive feedback for their services is at an all-time high.

We’ve recently enhanced our solutions to fit the needs of small communities better:
• Make content-rich updates to your website with no web-management experience needed

• Integrate your website with our Online Code Hosting solution

Integration Demonstration:

• Integrate your website with our Microsoft® Word-based Agenda and Meeting Management solution

Three-Minute Solution Overview:

• Take advantage of our population-based pricing with bundled discounting so you can achieve optimal functionality, efficiency, and transparency

Success Story

Howey-in-the-Hills, FL, Population 1,651, Reduces Costs by at Least $25,000 a Year with Integrated Technology from CivicPlus®

Before implementing our CivicPlus Agenda and Meeting Management Essential solution, John Brock, the Howey-in-the-Hill, FL Town Clerk, manually created meeting agendas. It was often an arduous, time-consuming process.

“Everything was processed just in Word or Excel,” said Brock. “Before, I would have folders on a hard drive I would go through. When we wanted to make a packet, we would have to compress it into a Zip file. You’d have to put it in, say, Dropbox or something because email wouldn’t take due to its size. Every time there was a change, you’d have to repackage the whole thing together and send it out again like that.”

When it came time to look for an automated solution for agenda creation and meeting management, Brock was searching for solutions that would be easy to use, especially for non-IT staff. By adding our Essential Agenda and Meeting Management solution to the community’s tech stack, which already included a CivicPlus website and codification services, Howey-in-the-Hills leaders started saving significant time.
