Founded in 2015, Hoboken-based GovPilot provides a cloud-based SaaS government management platform specifically designed for local government. The company offers more than 125 modules, which enable governments to provide constituent services such as public record requests, inspections, licensing, tax assessment, public works, and more, in a secure, digital environment.
Digitization and automation allow local governments to realize greater efficiency and transparency by eliminating antiquated paper processes and replaces the functions of disparate single-use legacy platforms with a single all-in-one system. In utilizing GovPilot, governments are able to unify and access data across departments in real-time, 24/7 from any location. The result is increased efficiency, transparency, security, and data-based decision-making that streamlines constituent services.
“As the Gov Tech space evolves and the needs of local governments increasingly come into focus, GovPilot plans to introduce new offerings to ensure municipal governments are able operate at peak efficiency and security,” said James Delmonico, the company’s Vice President of Product. “In fact, since early 2020, GovPilot has been offering cybersecurity advisory services to local governments nationwide, given the alarming increase in ransomware attacks. Additionally, GovPilot has been certified by the State of New Jersey to provide a Mod IV tax assessment module for New Jersey municipalities.”
Current clients of note include Atlantic City, Jersey City, Paterson, Raleigh, and Trenton. GovPilot has been recognized as a top 100 “Gov Tech” company by Government Technology Magazine for three consecutive years (2018–2020). This year, GovPilot is the sole New Jersey company represented. The GovTech 100 is an annual list compiled and published by Government Technology as a compendium of 100 companies focused on, making a difference in, and providing services to state and local government agencies across the United States.
Michael Bonner, the company’s founder and CEO said, “Though still young, the Gov Tech industry is rapidly growing as local governments across the country race to meet the needs and expectations of their constituents, and the realities of our digital world. GovPilot’s mission is to enable governments to operate at their full potential, and we are proud to provide a platform that has been purpose-built from the ground up, incorporating input and feedback from real-world users.
