Municipal Clerk Software Solutions

The backbone of both large and small local governments, and even of the democratic process, is the clerk’s office. Clerks have the responsibility to carry out elections, manage meetings, record and maintain official records and provide a variety of services to the general public. CivicPlus provides a robust suite of solutions that address challenges clerks face, providing a modern government interface.

Typical Challenges for Clerks

Challenge 1

I’m spending too much time and using too many resources creating agendas and managing the meeting process.


Our automated, yet flexible solution can reduce the time spent creating agendas and managing meetings from days to minutes, while still providing you with full control over your processes.

I spoke to some fellow clerks and asked for references. For the price and the functionality and how many meetings we can hold, and the a la carte menu for additional services, things like video streaming, CivicClerk was the best fit for us.

We still wanted an automated agenda solution, but we wanted to find cost savings without giving up the features we were using,” remembers Cole. “I began to research over a six-month period and found CivicClerk, formerly BoardSync. It fit our needs. We liked the idea of still having an automated agenda system, but with CivicClerk we were also able to expand our available features and not spend as much money as we were spending for just agenda functionality.

Challenge 4

As the volume and complexity of public records requests increases, so does the need to involve other departments that often delays responses and dilutes accuracy. As the front line in public records requests, my personal responsibility and concern for the effects of non-compliance on our agency has expanded considerably.


Using CivicPlus’ centralized, automated public records requests solution ensures effortless coordination across departments with roles and permissions, automated routing, due date tracking, and reminders, as well as robust extraction and redaction capabilities.

It wasn’t until a public records request that involved social media was made did I realize our potential for non-compliance. Did we archive every post, comment, deleted comments, hidden content, photos and videos related to the request? I’ll never know until there’s a lawsuit.


CivicPlus’ Social Media Archiving solution takes out guesswork and ensures compliance. It archives every post, comment, hidden content, photo or video, still present or deleted, in real-time.
