ROBBINSVILLE TOWNSHIP CHOOSES REVELSTONE’S PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM TO IMPROVE SERVICE DELIVERY
-- Platform Will Benchmark Success and Help Administrators Make Fact-based Decisions --
PARSIPPANY, NJ—July 17, 2012—Revelstone, a provider of local government and municipal performance data solutions, has entered an agreement with the Robbinsville Township to purchase Revelstone’s comprehensive performance measurement platform, Compass. The Robbinsville Township selected Compass as its performance management solution based on the platform’s pre-defined measures, benchmarking and reporting and analysis capabilities.
“Compass gathers data from departments within a township allowing that township to measure, track and compare their municipality’s performance to peer organizations. This ability to gauge a township against peers in another community of comparable size is a valuable tool,” said Dave Fried, Mayor of the Robbinsville Township. “We are convinced the Revelstone strategy of organizing, storing and sharing data with so many communities will be extremely valuable to mayors across the country.”
“Government performance management is an ongoing, systematic approach to improving results through fact-based decision making, continuous organizational learning and a focus on accountability. The Robbinsville Township is leading the way through innovation in which local governments and municipalities manage day-to-day tasks and review trends, “said Mark Nelson, co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of Revelstone. “Compass enables administrators to make decisions based on statistics which is crucial as a decision-maker in municipal government.”
The platform’s benchmarking capabilities are advantageous to elected officials because it allows them to provide residents with a clear methodology about why a certain change makes sense both financially and in terms of its benefits to the entire community. Aside from benchmarking and making fact-based decisions, Mayor Fried foresees additional benefits from the use of Compass. “We will not only be able to share information in order to track certain trends, but there also is the opportunity to forge new business alliances that could ultimately benefit all residents,” says Fried.
“Any time an elected official can relate empirical statistical data to residents it provides a factual and historical rationale for why any type of change or project makes sense, and that the decision was not indiscriminately reached on a whim,” continued Fried.
The Robbinsville Township is located in Mercer County, New Jersey and has a population of over 13,500.
