Pricing Policies and Guarantees

Low Price Guarantee For Municipal/Special District Website Design and Hosting

We feel that our services and software do not have to be sold on price, and we are happy to compete head-to-head with any other provider.
However, we will also don't want to lose on price alone. Ever. So, here is our guarantee to you - we guarantee that we will beat ANY proposal from any company that specializes in municipal website development.
This includes multi-year proposals, and proposals that include a free re-design after only two years of hosting.
In addition to being lower on development costs, we will also beat our competitors by at least 20% (sometimes MUCH more) on service fees (hosting).

  • We guarantee to beat CivicPlus, Vision Internet, Revise, or any other local government website design company for design and hosting fees.
  • All applications are included in our honest, flat hosting fee. There are no hidden charges. This includes a separate secure Staff Intranet website.
  • Never settle for a "Silver Package". All packages with us are full-featured and include ALL of our applications.

Hosting Fee Lock-In

We are often asked "will your hosting fees be going up soon?" because our hosting fees are typically much less than CivicPlus and other providers. Our lowest hosting fee for small non-profits is only $10 per month. Cities and counties range are obviously higher, and generally range in price from $75 to $300 per month based on the size of the website. The biggest difference here is there is only ONE fee with us. With that one fee you get ALL of our applications, multiple domain name support, and a separate Secure Staff Portal website. Other providers charge $300+ per month just for your main website, plus they tack on a maintenance fee, other application fees, and per-user fees for some of their applications. In one case, we saved a city in Kentucky over $10,000 per year in just their hosting fees alone. We can bill you month-to-month, annually, or we can lock your fees in with a hosting commitment up to 5 years into the future. The good news is that we do not have immediate plans to raise our hosting fees, as we enjoy a very competitive position in this industry and it is one of the reasons why more customers are choosing us - no-nonsense fees.

Design Refresh Commitment

A popular selling point with our services is that we can offer you a design refresh of your site's design after two or more years of website hosting. Most municipal websites need a design refresh after about four or five years. With our font-end design engine that is build on the Bootstrap Framework (other companies don't offer this), we can re-skin your website with new features and design elements quickly. This guarantee is spelled-out in our proposals.

No Outsourcing Commitment

We are seeing an alarming number of offshore developers and outsourcing companies bidding on municipal projects across North America. We intend to keep all of our developers and revenue in the USA and Canada for the foreseeable future. All of our developers are currently based in Colorado, USA. All of our solutions are purpose built for local government and owned by us. We are privately owned by a USA citizen. We do not have a parent company.
