For cost-conscious states, cities and local governments, BasicGov is web software for key business tasks for economic and community development and land management.
BasicGov streamlines key business processes while costing 30% less than traditional software. The business was originally part of an publicly-listed enterprise software supplier to government; BasicGov was taken private in September 2010. BasicGov has 34 cities and counties as customers and was recently selected by a US state to supply a surface land management solution. The company is growing organically at almost 100% per year.
BasicGov is offered in partnership with Salesforce.com and delivered over the web as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) or a Cloud Computing application. BasicGov was designed for governments who need to cut costs while managing business functions like permitting and inspections, code enforcement, planning, land management and licensing. Unlike enterprise software that is expensive to acquire and difficult to implement, BasicGov requires no capital investment and is quick to set up. BasicGov costs at least 30% less than legacy solutions.
