About CityGrows

CityGrows is workflow automation software for local governments. Governments digitize and automate their workflows from start to finish, and improve operational efficiency, transparency, and compliance. The CityGrows platform allows any government employee – regardless of technical skill – to structure and improve their workflows by collecting information from the public, automating constituent communications, processing online payments, and managing everything through our smart dashboard. CityGrows believes in transparency in software pricing for government and developed our subscription/ payment processing revenue model in collaboration with our government clients and our investors.
