Utilize government resources efficiently

Federal, state and local governments can spend a significant amount of their budget on staffing costs including hiring, retention, and overtime. With Civis Platform and predictive modeling, we can assist you in determining how to hire efficiently, assist in recruiting and retention, and reduce overtime.

  • Machine learning in hiring — We assisted a federal agency in applying machine learning methods to help job applicants find suitable federal job openings and to help hiring managers identify suitable applicants.

Enable interdepartmental collaboration

Unify your data and automate workflows to seamlessly share information and insights across multiple teams, agencies or jurisdictions. Rely on a single, trusted source of truth to better serve your community.

“When Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, we needed new tools to understand the extent of the storm, how much damage the city incurred, and what parts of the city are still in need.”

The Civis Platform allowed us to understand unmet need at a new level, and target our policies and programs where they have the most impact. This analysis will help us respond more quickly to future natural disasters.”
