OpenGov | June 24, 2021

OpenGov, the market leader in modern cloud ERP software for our nation's cities, counties, and state agencies, today announced the acquisition of ProcureNow, the industry's fastest-growing, top multi-tenant SaaS software provider for government procurement and contract management.
