I am very excited to let you know that after building Vision into a premiere website design, development and hosting solution in local government over the past 20 years, we are joining forces with the leading cloud-based solutions provider in the public sector – Granicus.
Granicus and Vision are coming together to realize a common mission – to empower government to provide seamless digital citizen experiences.
Today’s announcement, that Vision will be combining forces with Granicus, marks the next step in our journey. I am incredibly excited about what this means for our customers going forward. This deal will allow us to keep growing, investing and innovating on the Vision platform to drive even greater value for our customers.

Why This Partnership Makes Sense
As I write this, I realize some of you may be wondering why we decided to join forces with another company rather than continue to go it alone and why Granicus?
Granicus is on a mission to deliver a comprehensive platform that delivers on the rising digital expectations of citizens. At Vision we have similar aspirations. The reality, however, is innovation in this market is happening at an incredibly rapid pace that we would have been hard pressed to match as a standalone company.
By joining forces with Granicus, overnight we are no longer reacting to the competitive landscape, we are leading it.
The acquisition means an accelerated pace of innovation with combined resources. Together we are now the largest cloud-based provider of government technology solutions in the market, with more than 400 employees and nearly 3,500 clients. No one will be better positioned to meet the market need.
The Granicus product suite also complements our product extraordinarily well. Granicus offers the leading communications suite in the market, the leading meeting and agenda management suite, and the leading video streaming solution among other things. The possibilities for how we can bring these technologies together with our premier website solution are incredibly exciting.
I want to thank our customers for your ongoing trust in us to provide solutions and services that drive your communities forward; it is our honor to play a small part in your success. We look forward to serving you for years to come and please know that our commitment to our customers has never been stronger. And thank you to our Vision employees past and present. I am incredibly excited for this next chapter.
I encourage you to read the press release as well for more details on this exciting news.
