The client was launched in June of 2015 with two goals in mind:
– For starters, we want to help the average American citizen understand how their local tax dollars are spent within their communities while providing meaningful context as to how those expenditures compare to peer communities.
– In parallel, we aim to help local municipalities – towns, cities, school districts, etc. – operate and communicate more efficiently and effectively by delivering unique fiscal insights through our turnkey financial transparency and benchmarking platform.
The company already works with hundreds of local governments from large cities to small school districts to help them communicate, connect and engage with their constituents to build community support for mission-critical projects. The platform also enables civic officials to make informed, fact-based decisions about budgets, hiring, economic development and more.
We are building a network of forward-thinking government officials and communities who share a vision of data-driven government that can positively impact millions of lives. Quite simply, we are making democracy work better.
