Here’s how GovDelivery can quickly help you realize value:

  • Reduce Printing and Postage Expenses. Sending notifications through email saves money on paper ($.08-$.14 /color copy), postage ($.44 - $1.10/item) and staff time used for mailing information.
  • Decrease Need for In-Person Visits, Phone Calls, and other Administrative Overhead. Using GovDelivery reduces higher cost interactions by encouraging public web interaction.
  • Simplify & Automate Communications. Simply update your website and GovDelivery sends out personalized email or text messages to interested citizens.
  • Increase Website Use. More subscribers mean more information "pulled" by citizens. GovDelivery clients see website visits increase 20-50 percent.
  • Achieve Greater Number of Subscribers vs. Traditional Email List Software. GovDelivery clients experience a 300-1,100 percent increase in number of subscribers thanks to the “lift” from similar government organizations through the GovDelivery Network.
  • Increase Revenue: GovDelivery provides an easy and convenient way for the public to pay for fishing and business licenses, permits and other fees.
  • Remove Costly IT Infrastructure. GovDelivery is a Software-as-a-Service provider. That means no server and database maintenance, no software upgrades every few years, and no need to pay technology consultants. We take care of it all for you.
  • High Deliverability Rate. 98 percent of emails sent through GovDelivery make it to recipients' inboxes.
  • Improve Service to Citizens. Giving people the information they want, when they want it, and how they want it delivered makes them feel more connected with what’s going on your organization.
  • Go “Green.” Sending communications electronically helps save natural resources and cuts transportation emissions.
