Why choose Novotx over OpenGov?

OpenGov is a huge platform with many components - 

many of those components built by different companies at different times, acquired then glued together.

We don't think that welding the driver side from a Ford to the passenger side of a Chevy works very well, so we've built our own platform. 

Easier access to better support

When you call us for support you'll be talking with the same people who are already familiar with your system and your deployment, likely in the same time zone as you.

Driven by you, not shareholders

We're proud to be self-funded, built from the ground up, never acquired. With that comes the freedom to build what our customers want, not what our shareholders think the market wants.

One system, on purpose

Our platform consists purely of products built and designed by our team. No growth-by-acquisition, no "integrating" foreign tech. Just plain old hard work.

Our solutions
