Bringing together years of leadership in delivering citizen experience solutions to government
Over the past couple of years, governments have experienced challenging times as the push for digital transformation has accelerated, and citizens expectations have changed significantly. During that time, Granicus has been working to continuously improve our offerings to create well-integrated experiences that focus on human-centered principles, for both government organizations and the communities they serve.
Today, Granicus is proud to share that we are continuing that work by expanding the Granicus family with the addition of govtech innovator, Rock Solid. This acquisition marks a significant step for Granicus in its mission to help governments of all sizes connect with constituents in a secure, equitable, and digital way.
Granicus and Rock Solid bring together years of leadership working in the public sector and share a commitment to helping government organizations on their digital transformation journey. Together they will offer an unmatched breadth of integrated technology solutions unlocking new capabilities for government leaders with the market’s leading govtech technology designed to create a digital bridge between government operations and citizen interactions.
“We are bringing together the industry’s strongest set of technologies, services, and data analytics to create a more powerful platform that helps our government customers dramatically enhance citizen experience, transparency, and engagement, while delivering important operational efficiencies – all from one trusted partner,” said Granicus CEO, Mark Hynes.
What does this mean for Granicus customers?
We do not expect to see any immediate impact to current customers. This acquisition confirms our commitment to our customers and furthers Granicus’ ability to bring a holistic portfolio of offerings that provide more value and a better customer experience. Granicus remains committed to supporting and servicing all our customers.
The combination of Rock Solid and Granicus meeting management solutions, as well as the full-service video production capabilities of Swagit, will now offer local governments a full array of technologies, services, and mission-critical support options to meet the specific public meetings needs of each community. In the future, we will more deeply integrate capabilities from Rock Solid across the Granicus Experience Platform.
Expanding our global presence
With this news, we are excited to welcome Latin America into the Granicus global community. Expanding our global footprint enables the company to continue its impressive growth with the opportunity to serve additional government organizations. Granicus looks forward to having greater access to talent across the globe allowing us to enhance our ability to innovate.
Today’s news follows a series of recent product announcements and company acquisitions that strengthen Granicus’ position as the world’s leading cloud-delivered govtech platform. This acquisition reiterates the company’s commitment to equip customers with an integrated set of modern capabilities and services they need to better serve their communities and constituents.
