CivicPlus Acquires BoardSync, Launches Agenda Management Solution

The company has been expanding its product portfolio lately.

After buying up another company, CivicPlus is getting into agenda and meeting management.

CivicPlus has acquired BoardSync and is fitting its technology into a new product it calls CivicClerk. The product will allow users to collaborate on agenda creation, put those agendas online and then record actions and events during meetings.

The move adds a fifth product to CivicPlus’ stable, which has been expanding lately. The company, which has been around since the 1990s, already offered website design and hosting, notifications, human resources and parks and recreation software.

“CivicPlus’ clients will be able to integrate our existing agenda management, meeting minutes, board portal and public engagement solutions into their CivicEngage websites,” BoardSync Co-Founder Doug Shumway said in a press release.

The launch of CivicRec, CivicPlus’ parks and recreation management solution, followed a similar path. The company released the product after acquiring Rec1 in January.

The foray into agendas also puts CivicPlus into a similar space as Granicus, which merged with GovDelivery in 2016.

CivicPlus has more than 2,500 local government customers, and BoardSync had a wide reach as well — according to the company’s website, it was already operating in roughly half of the states before the acquisition.
