GovSense is recognized for its Economic Development initiatives under the Business-to-Government Experience category.
ATLANTA – September 7, 2017 – The Center for Digital Government announced GovSense as a winner of the 2017 Government Experience Award for their Economic Development initiatives that have led to financial, social, and quality of life improvements for jurisdictions. The Center for Digital Government will recognize the winners of its inaugural Government Experience Award on September 15, 2017 in Austin, Texas. GovSense provides land, license, and financial cloud-based solutions for local government.
The Government Experience Awards honor U.S. governments who are offering citizens more integrated, anticipatory and personalized electronic services.
“It’s an honor for our company to be recognized as innovators who represent the very best of government technology,” said Gary McTall, co-founder of GovSense. “At GovSense we believe in empowering jurisdictions to keep building smarter communities while fostering growth and encouraging investment.”
Twenty-five Government Experience Project Awards were presented in seven categories this year and included awardees in the new project category “Business to Government Experience.”
“Citizen expectations are increasingly being reshaped by their experiences with consumer technologies. The website is no longer the only experience they use – it’s now one of many channels in their overall experience,” said Dustin Haisler, Chief Innovation Officer for the Center for Digital Government. “The Government Experience Awards were developed to recognize government agencies that are focusing on designing and delivering services across the overall experience and not necessarily just one channel.”
Through Geographic Information Systems (GIS), GovSense takes jurisdictions’ spatial data and leverages it toward non-traditional purposes such as planning, budgeting and economic development. Thanks to this initiative, it’s easy to build economically attractive communities by providing accurate, real-time data for companies, brokers, site selectors, tenants and more.
