Benchmark and compare with other governments in the OpenGov Network™. Connect to municipalities similar to your own, whether they’re a bus ride or a plane ride away. Identify whom to contact for new insights and bring these discoveries to your internal operations.
Provide the fastest answers to complex questions.
What if, instead of weeks or months of effort pulling data from multiple sources, hiring consultants, surveying colleagues, normalizing data in spreadsheets, and creating graphs, any member of your government could simply log on to a web service, select the type of comparison she wants, and see results in an interactive chart? And then, share the comparison with everyone who needs it?
View the data from your perspective.
Craft “Apples to Apples” Comparisons. Governments have different Charts of Accounts, making it difficult to accurately compare themselves to one another. Radio equipment expenditures may be filed under different parts of the Chart of Accounts with different terminologies. The era of manually ensuring that comparisons are consistent across Charts of Accounts is over. OpenGov uses advanced data science to automatically normalize comparisons across Charts of Accounts.
Stay focused on the data that matters.
State and local governments benefit from quick and consistent comparisons, but governments also need a wide range of tools to explore data and manipulate outputs to tell relevant stories.
