Two member organizations recently used the cooperative purchasing solution through Choice Facility Partners and selected Granicus, Inc. for government webcasting and public meeting management technology. Fort Worth ISD and Mansfield ISD used the Choice Facility Partners cooperative purchasing contract with Granicus for webcasting, minutes annotation and board voting solutions.
The Granicus’ solution tightly integrates with board meeting processes and enables schools to maximize community outreach to capture, store, manage, and distribute live and on-demand webcasting content, facilitating access to governing meetings, educational programming, press conferences, speeches, or eLearning opportunities.
