Govolution partner to add local appeal

Govolution, an application service provider that specializes in online transaction

services for government, joined forces in October with a company that will

add Web site creation, management and maintenance to Govolution's portfolio.

Govolution acquired Digigov.net, a Washington, D.C.-based company whose

technology generates database-driven Web pages. With the technology separating

site layout from site content, people can add new content with simple forms.

Outdated material is removed automatically.

Govolution, with several federal clients, wants to use the Digigov technology

to attract more local government customers, said Jonathan Prince, Govolution's

chairman and chief executive officer.

"We want to find governments that haven't had the resources to deploy

[technologies] to help them provide [e-government services] to their citizens,"

Prince said.

Govolution, also based in Washington, integrates its RapidRelay technology

into existing government Web sites to provide online payment capabilities

for items such as building permits, business licenses, property taxes and

license renewals.

Govolution's federal clients include the departments of Education, Defense,

Justice and Interior, the U.S. Census Bureau and the Federal Communications

Commission.

"We understand that governments of different sizes have different electronic

government needs," Prince said. "Digigov's technology coupled together with

our proven transaction processing technology will help governments in their

first and second stages of e-government."
