A growing customer segment here at Formstack is State and Local Government organizations who are looking for an easy, affordable, way to collect information online and manage that data without having to utilize a ton of IT resources.

As more and more citizens and companies do business, get and receive information, and manage that  information online, Formstack’s benefits are quickly being recognized by organizations of all sizes.  Many State and Local Government entities are turning to Formstack because our form builder is easy to use, it is very affordable, compared to hiring and maintaining IT Staff or using custom developers, and we are a secure application that has the most up to date security measures in place.

There are many different ways that government entities can use online forms such as, Surveys for Town and City issues, event and volunteer registrations, and much more. One creative use that we have seen is a bidder request form, used for businesses who would like to do business with a city. This form is a perfect use of our form builder, it allows the city to gather a database, that does not require paper or PDF forms, and quickly gather a list of businesses that may be eligible to do business with the city.
