Granicus is making an app store available for government IT shops. CivSource previously reported on the apps offered by Granicus which let state governments streamline activities like posting city council minutes online. Other applications available on the app store are in the same vein – such as SeeClickFix which lets citizens report non-emergency municipal repairs.
With this launch, more than 1,000 government agencies on the Granicus platform will have access to the AppStore to easily discover and deploy apps from a growing list of industry leading digital government solutions covering categories such as 311, citizen mobile, budget transparency, social media, recycling, and solid waste.
To date, the Granicus platform serves more than 63,000 government staff users and 8 million citizens per year. User traffic ranges from 15 to 20 million pageviews per month and is averaging a 35% YOY growth rate.
Apps listed include Textizen which allows for citizen outreach through text message; iLegislate which provides information on local bills; License123 which handles local licensing and permitting, and ReCollect which provides information on residential waste management.
