OpenGov now works with more than 1,500 governments across the U.S, and has doubled its customer base since last year. The OpenGov Smart Government Cloud is powering governments of all sizes, including recent partnerships with the Cities of Boston, Phoenix, Birmingham Alabama and the State of West Virginia.
“OpenGov is on a mission to improve the performance of government,” said Emerson Collective Founder and President Laurene Powell Jobs. “With this investment, we hope to help the company lead a movement for government effectiveness and accountability, empowering citizens to drive positive impact in communities across the country. We believe in OpenGov’s ability to improve the way government and citizens engage with each other by putting modern tools at the service of our democracy.”
Beginning with its initial groundbreaking software for financial transparency, OpenGov has built easy to use software to solve complex problems for the public sector. The fully integrated OpenGov Smart Government Cloud™ now includes an end-to-end budgeting solution, an operational intelligence and reporting solution, and open data solutions.
Governments across the country using these OpenGov solutions have experienced firsthand how the company’s technology powers more effective and accountable government. Customers have seen 50% time savings in budgeting and reporting, have freed up 1% or more of their budgets for re-allocation, have cut information requests by 20%, and have seen dramatic improvements in transparency and trust in their communities. In December 2014, the State of Ohio started working with OpenGov to bring “checkbook-level” spending detail to all of Ohio’s local governments. Since then, Ohio has gone from #47 out of 50 states in financial transparency to #1 for the past two years in a row, according to the U.S. Public Interest Research Group’s Follow the Money Report.
OpenGov is the leader in government performance management, with easy-to-use cloud software for better budgeting, improved operational intelligence, and comprehensive open data. OpenGov solutions give governments the right tools and relevant data for more informed decision-making and better outcomes for the public.
Over 1,500 public agencies in 48 states are part of the growing OpenGov network. Founded in 2012, OpenGov customers include the State Treasurer of Ohio, the city of Minneapolis, MN; Maricopa County, AZ; and Washington, DC. OpenGov is backed by Andreessen Horowitz, Emerson Collective, 8VC, and Thrive Capital and has headquarters in Redwood City, CA.
