We’re proud to share exciting news about the future of government digital transformation. Rock Solid and PrimeGov are coming together!
One of our primary goals has always been to help local government and their communities work as one. Our acquisition of PrimeGov will allow us to provide government agencies needing 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.
Our companies are joining forces to provide local government with a complete digital platform. From the legislative management process to the gathering of constituent input to the communication of data across departments, local government now has one end-to-end solution for managing, tracking, and communicating what is happening in their communities.
What is PrimeGov?
PrimeGov empowers local governments to optimize and digitize their agenda, meeting, and committee management processes with a single cloud-based solution. With PrimeGov, local governments can seamlessly host hybrid meetings with remote voting capabilities. This saves time, increases efficiency, and promotes transparency to constituents.
The company’s solutions for committee management, agenda automation, meeting management, community engagement, video streaming, and virtual meeting management already make significant impact on local governments around the nation. PrimeGov partners with top cities and counties, including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Oklahoma City, on their agenda, meeting, and committee management processes. Alongside Rock Solid, PrimeGov was recognized in the 2021 GovTech 100 as a company making a difference.
Why Rock Solid and PrimeGov are joining forces
Rock Solid and PrimeGov are coming together to provide local government with a complete digital platform for resident engagement. From the legislative management process to the gathering of constituent input to the communication of data across departments, local government now has one end-to-end solution for managing, tracking, and communicating what is happening in their communities.
It’s a natural fit. Both companies have dedicated local government domain expertise, building products specifically for the public sector. Rock Solid has supported local government digital transformation with its solutions for over 20 years, and PrimeGov’s leadership team brings 20+ years of hands-on experience in building software for local government.
Perhaps even more important is the demand for a holistic community participation solution. In the What Citizens Want report, a survey of U.S. citizens conducted by Government Technology’s Center for Digital Government, ELGL, and Rock Solid, the top three services that local government should prioritize based on the needs and wants of their communities are:
- Pothole and street repair requests,
- 311 (service requests and information), and
- City or county government meetings
Cities are taking notice of what their residents really want. Rock Solid and PrimeGov were recently selected by the City of San Antonio, Texas to provide a joint solution for their new Resident Connection Platform.
San Antonio sought a single portal that would allow residents in this city of 1.58 million people to initiate city services, communicate with elected officials, apply to sit on boards or commissions, and take part in city council or other public meetings virtually. In addition, the city wanted to provide one view for the staff of open items for residents across all city departments. Together, Rock Solid and PrimeGov will help San Antonio achieve their vision of “a resident centric approach to engagement with the City of San Antonio.”

Rock Solid and PrimeGov together will help bring local government leaders and their residents together in more effective ways than ever before. That’s why we’re so excited to have PrimeGov be part of the Rock Solid family.
What does this mean for Rock Solid customers?
The future of Rock Solid is brighter than ever. We always strive to bring value and quality to our customers, and coming together with PrimeGov helps us provide best-in-class solutions and service to local government.
Rock Solid and PrimeGov are keeping 100% of staff through the acquisition. Our customers will continue to receive exceptional support with even more resources and experience at their disposal than ever before.
In addition, PrimeGov’s Executive Chairman Tom Spengler will become the CEO of Rock Solid. Tom has spent over 20 years in the government technology industry, including as the co-founder and former CEO of Granicus. He also sits on the Board of Directors for a number of technology companies, including Propylon and Ascendify. We are excited to have Tom Spengler, who is passionate about improving government through technology and has helped bring several leading products to market, as the new Rock Solid CEO!
Rick Brown, current CEO of Rock Solid, will be staying on board as well. He will serve as Executive Chairman of the Board of Rock Solid and as CEO of Rock Solid ERP.
Local Government agencies that work with Rock Solid can feel confident knowing they are investing in a company that continues to grow and strives meet their digital needs in every way.
The future of local government
We’re moving to a world of not just community engagement, but community participation. Residents already expect their local government to be available across more channels than ever before. From phone calls and in-person visits to online and mobile access, the digital government experience is the next frontier of local government access. Digital transformation is no longer a nice-to-have, but a must-have.
Together, Rock Solid and PrimeGov are proud to help local government shape the future of engaged communities. With our partnership, aggregated resident feedback, service requests, and delivery data will integrate into the agenda management process. This will allow government to make resident-centric decisions that are truly aligned to strategic initiatives.
The future of local government is one of true partnership between communities and their leaders. Providing better services, driving efficiency, and connecting the will of the people directly with the actions of their local government will build all-important trust in local government.
Rock Solid is excited to help customers transform community engagement and maximize outcomes for the residents they serve by combining the power of unified CRM and legislative management software. With a deeply integrated citizen engagement platform that unifies the power of public meeting participation and agenda management with transparent, actionable data, local government will connect with and serve residents more efficiently and effectively than ever before.
