Granicus, a provider of cloud-based software solutions and digital engagement services for the public sector, announced a partnership with Bang the Table, the company behind the award-winning community engagement solution, EngagementHQ. The companies have collaborated on an integrated set of solutions that extend a variety of new capabilities and features to Granicus’ local government customers, further strengthening the market’s first, and most comprehensive civic engagement platform.
Bang the Table’s EngagementHQ is used by over 500 government organizations to more effectively engage their communities. The solution utilizes eight different engagement tools to provide government agencies with the ability to deliver clear, accurate and transparent information as well as provide residents and stakeholders the ability to voice public input on proposed projects and other issues that impact their community. Automated reporting and a participant management database further support governments’ ability to more effectively listen to their residents. The integration of EngagementHQ and govDelivery, Granicus’ digital communications platform, provides a powerful combination that delivers a seamless, closed-loop communication and engagement experience between governments and citizens.
“We’ve long been admirers of Bang the Table’s innovative approach to engaging residents and providing them with a digital platform to make their voices heard,” said Mark Hynes, CEO of Granicus. “Every opportunity to strengthen civic engagement counts. As more governments are building robust web properties, digital services, and multi-channel communications, they’re also turning to feedback tools to capture real-time input from citizens. By partnering with Bang the Table, our mutual customers benefit from a connected experience between civic engagement and community feedback – actively encouraging more civic participation, better measuring engagement effectiveness, and providing a seamless digital experience to residents.”
The partnership will provide valuable services to both companies’ current customers.
