Bang the Table, a leading global provider of SaaS-based community engagement solutions, has been acquired by Granicus, a portfolio company of Vista Equity and Harvest Partners.
Founded in 2007, Bang the Table empowers governments and municipalities to engage with their communities through intuitive and accessible citizen engagement applications. Bang the Table has given over 17 million people across Australia, Canada, U.K., and the United States the ability to participate and inform key decision making within their communities.
"My number one lesson from this transaction has been the value of having the cool heads and wisdom of the GLC team by our side. We first met the GLC team 4 years ago. There was never any pressure but there was plenty of great advice and we grew to trust them implicitly. When we were ready to sell the business, GLC gently steered us through a process that would have left us completely lost if we had tried to tackle it alone. They were always there with the strategic advice, the hard work and the good counsel which meant we could actually continue to run the business through the lengthy process. We were never railroaded, never felt that GLC acted in anything other than our best interests, and we are delighted with the outcome. Bang the Table has found the right home, got a great result and I'm pretty sure we would not have achieved so much without the GLC team's hard work and counsel. I would recommend GLC to anyone looking to complete a major transaction."
- Matthew Crozier, C0-Founder & CEO, Bang the Table
The combination of Bang the Table's EngagementHQ and Granicus' Civic Engagement Platform addresses a critical gap in today's digital journeys: the ability to learn from every digital interaction. Now, by inviting resident input at every touchpoint and generating a steady stream of quantifiable market intelligence, governments gain a detailed picture of what matters most to their communities, in real-time. With Bang the Table's 360-degree, data-gathering tools capturing audience sentiment, feedback, and engagement data, diverse communities can share their voices quickly and easily to provide actionable feedback to governments on topics big and small.
"Accessbility, inclusivity, and equity are critical factors that must be embedded in the fabric of modern governments. That's why we pride ourselves on offering tools that give all residents an equal voice in local government," said Bang the Table CEO Matthew Crozier. "Together with Granicus, we power government agencies to make smarter decisions informed by the full community at scale."
