Myths about government technology:

  1. It’s expensive: ProudCity pricing is made for local government.
  2. It’s hard to manage: ProudCity onboarding teaches you how to fish, so you’re empowered long after you launch
  3. It’s difficult to decide on a vendor: ProudCity lets you try before you buy
  4. It takes too long to set up: We’ll get you launched in 2017
