Ready to level up from Google Forms, Civic Plus Forms, Jotforms or Formstack? Bring the whole workflow online with CityGrows

Local governments responded to COVID-19 challenges by being resourceful and leveraging technology in new ways.  As we’re wrapping up 2021 (better than 2020, but we’re still not going to be sad to see it go), we’re seeing more and more governments realize that the stopgap strategies they implemented in panic mode need to be upgraded for the long haul. Constituents (and staff) will never accept paper-based forms as their only options again.

Government employees are continuing to work from home (at least part of the time) and need flexible, cloud-based workflow management systems. Many governments took the first step towards digital operations during the pandemic by putting their forms online, but are now realizing that unless a digital form is part of a complete workflow system, it doesn’t make things run smoother or reduce hassles for staff.

Kudos to every local government team member who creatively solved their challenges with new technologies in real time but CityGrows is here to help you build out your online forms, payments, reviews and approvals for the long haul.

Unlike commercial online forms products that aren’t made for government, or older forms tools promoted by content management system companies that don't specialize in workflow tools, CityGrows offers:

  • Shared “smart” dashboards that keep each staff person on track
  • Built in payments
  • Automatic status updates and notifications for staff and applicants
  • Performance management tools specific to government to help you keep things moving quickly through review and approval
  • Custom PDF printouts of permits and licenses so they match your forms
  • Built in open data options for public access

Governments are using CityGrows to convert permits licenses and processes they put onto Formstack, Jotforms, and Google forms onto the sustainable and affordable CityGrows platform.

Book time with our team and learn how we can help your government do the same!
