Moore OKs purchase of GOGov software

Moore Township Board of Supervisors moved forward with the GOGov program during the June 4 meeting. The board voted to approve the purchase of the system software.

GOGov is a citizen notification and permitting software. Numerous municipalities reportedly use GOGov to provide better service for residents and have a more efficient issuance of permits system. GOGov helps save time, leading to reduced township costs.

GOGov’s mission statement is, “Make government simple - for the citizens and people that manage it.”

GOGov’s vision is, “We love our customers. We believe in not only making our software easy to use but pride ourselves on being easy to work with.”

The program claims an innovative process that creates a user-friendly experience and achieves outstanding customer service. Visit gogovapps.com for detailed information about the services it provides.
