San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 21, 2011
Granicus, the award-winning cloud platform provider for government transparency, efficiency, and citizen participation, today announced record sales growth in the second quarter of 2011. Results illustrate the company’s ability to meet demands in government for cloud-based software to lower operating costs and improve performance across critical business areas including legislative workflows, citizen engagement, and transparency.
“Government agencies are expected to enhance citizen services and raise productivity levels despite shrinking budgets and limited staff. Technology is helping them fill these gaps,” says Tom Spengler, Granicus CEO & Co-Founder on the Granicus Blog. “This year, Granicus made significant product investments to help government agencies streamline inefficient legislative workflows while empowering them to deliver more timely and useful information to their citizens. Our ability to increase sales by more than three hundred percent over Q2 of last year indicates that we’re continuing to deliver products that add value to the government sector including more transparency, efficiency, and better citizen engagement,” he adds.
The company’s growth is evidenced across these core areas:
- Growth year-to-date – 157% growth over first 6 months of 2010
- Growth by quarter – 340% sales growth in Q2 2011 over Q2 2010
- New customers – 32 new government agencies joined the Granicus Cloud Platform in Q2 2011
Nearly 1,000 agencies currently rely on Granicus solutions to eliminate inefficient legislative processes while building trust with their citizens. Granicus’ cloud-based platform and product suites provide different modules and features that are specifically designed for government including workflow automation, streaming video, an iPad app, and other transparency and citizen collaboration tools.
