Who we are 

Open Counter Enterprises Inc. is building the next generation of permitting and licensing software for state and local governments. The software helps residents navigate complicated permitting requirements and helps city staff process applications more quickly. 

The company grew out of a 2012 Code for America Fellowship, and was selected as a winner of the Knight News Challenge in 2013. Since then, we have scaled to hundreds of cities and process hundreds of thousands of permit applications each year. 

In February of 2019, we were acquired by GTY Technology Inc. (NASDAQ:GTYH) to be part of a modern SaaS/cloud solution for state and local government. As part of our growth strategy, we’re expanding our marketing team to ensure that our external communications are focused, elevate the voice of our partners in the public sector, and stay true to our corporate values of innovation, transformation, and integrity
