By capturing more of their workflows digitally, we’re not only attracting new clients but also, expanding the business opportunity with our growing client base of more than 2,000 public sector organizations.”
The following report is an overview of solution releases and enhancements from GTY companies spanning August to December 2019:
Bonfire, a leading provider of sourcing and procurement software, expanded revenue streams by introducing Professional Services and a Premium Vendor offering. Bonfire Professional Services supports their growing client base by delivering Integration and Data Management services in response to the need for greater data operability and the ongoing effort to digitize legacy data. Bonfire Premium Vendors helps clients increase their vendor pool while at the same time, delivering on the need of the rapidly growing vendor community. Premium Vendor subscribers gain access to a centralized portal of bids available in Bonfire that are intelligently matched specifically for their business. Subscription is available to Bonfire’s growing database of more than 100,000 vendors as well as the large market of external vendors who are looking for public sector business.
CityBase, a financial technology company that digitizes processes, forms, and payments for local government and utilities, made a series of product updates. The CityBase User Profile lets people personalize how they pay bills and receive services from their local government or utility provider. Households can create secure log-ins to set billing reminders, store preferred payment methods, and select how they want to receive updates. Interactive Voice Response (IVR) is a new payment channel on the CityBase platform that allows residents to check their account status, pay a bill, or request a service by call or SMS text. An additional payment channel, Point of Sale (POS), enables more efficient interactions between customers and cashiers. The new CityBase POS software allows cashiers to assist customers with payments across multiple departments, directly integrating with underlying departmental databases for real-time lookups and posting.
eCivis, the leading cloud-based grant management system for state, local, and tribal governments, has released a standardized grant reporting and advanced customer relationship management features in its full lifecycle grants management system. Federal grant reporting today is administered separately across thousands of grant programs and governed by hundreds of laws and regulations. Legacy tools and inconsistent communication between a government and its thousands of grantees make the grant application and reporting process complex and challenging. Customer-facing systems to support grantees are rarely found in government today. With eCivis’ latest feature innovations and launch of FundMax™, comprehensive cost recovery solutions for government, customers are digitally transforming their grants management experience. eCivis’ user-friendly software and world-class support empower public sector organizations to simplify grant reporting processes, reduce compliance costs, and now recover revenue left behind.
Open Counter, a provider of permitting and licensing software, introduced Multi-Step Approvals feature for applications. Previously, users could approve an application only once, regardless of how many departments needed to sign off for approval. With this update, users can set up multiple departments or individuals to review an application before it’s officially marked “Approved.” Additionally, Open Counter now offers Versioning functionality enabling users to test changes to fees, permit conditions, and other inputs internally and with staff before making them live to the public. Versioning also saves each unique copy, providing insight into how project costs have changed as fees and regulations change over time.
Questica, an industry-leading provider of budget preparation and management software, has released revamped dashboard and reporting features for its Questica Budget Suite. The new and improved features include the ability to create and share secure dashboards and onscreen reports, table and data visualization options for Smart onscreen reports, and ready-built, editable templates in the Report Center. Clients can spend less time compiling numbers and generating reports, and more time using these new analytic capabilities to view budget data for actionable insights that can help drive priorities and positive outcomes for citizens and stakeholders.
