We are proud to announce that PrimeGov is joining forces with Rock Solid Technology to enhance the future of civic engagement and digital transformation of local government.
PrimeGov and Rock Solid Technologies’ leadership brings decades of dedicated local government experience. We now have the opportunity to provide new capabilities to facilitate every step of the legislative management process including, agenda automation, committee management, and virtual meetings. Together, both companies support over 180 local government agencies, including San Antonio, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Honolulu, Cupertino, and Orange County.
PrimeGov and Rock Solid Technology - Stronger Together
PrimeGov was founded in 2014 when several jurisdictions—dissatisfied with their current agenda management software options—began looking for a company committed to the legislative process. Our leadership team quickly recognized that PrimeGov was meeting a genuine need in the marketplace and that the opportunity to deliver a best-in-class legislative management solution was even bigger than we had anticipated.
To meet the market demand, we needed to invest in the business and grow, but we knew we had to do it the right way.
The City of San Antonio
PrimeGov and Rock Solid initially came together to respond to an RFP from the City of San Antonio. The RFP asked for a single portal to allow residents to initiate city services, communicate with elected officials, apply to sit on boards and commissions, and participate in city council or other public meetings virtually via a cohesive resident connection platform.
Rock Solid Technologies provided their constituent relationship management (CRM) and civic engagement platform, and PrimeGov brought in our single end-to-end legislative management solution. The city recognized that the best-in-class software and services our companies were offering were the solution to their problems and we were awarded the RFP.
As we began to work with Rock Solid Technologies more closely, both companies realized there is a healthy overlap in our missions, visions, and business philosophies. Rock Solid’s leadership recognized and appreciated PrimeGov’s customer-first philosophy and our insistence on delivering outstanding technical support.
The synergy between both companies was undeniable.
PrimeGov and Rock Solid Technologies leadership recognized that by joining forces, we could support our clients by facilitating every step of the legislative management process on both the front and back ends - everything from compiling agendas to streaming meetings to tracking community members’ comments over time could be united in a single digital platform.
Our companies are coming together to meet increasing industry demand for a deeply integrated citizen engagement platform that unifies the power of virtual public meeting participation and agenda management with transparent, actionable data from across all city departments.
What Does it Mean for Our Customers?
We are so excited about these two organizations coming together because Rock Solid sees the value in our people, in our customer-first philosophy, and our business model centered on local governments’ needs.
