AUBURN HILLS — Munetrix, an Auburn Hills-based data aggregator offering a suite of reporting, management and forecasting tools to meet the financial management and transparency needs of states, municipalities and schools, has partnered with the Michigan Municipal Services for shared data services.
“There is so much data available for government decision making, yet gaining access to the data without a specialty provider is difficult and time consuming” says Bob Kittle, president of Munetrix.
The Michigan Municipal Services Authority is a Michigan public body corporate created in 2012 through a local agreement between the cities of Grand Rapids and Livonia. The Authority is a “virtual” city empowered to exercise the common powers, privileges, and authority of the founding cities but has no geographic boundaries. Its purpose is to engage in cooperative activities with local governments and other public agencies.
Through the partnership, MMSA will sponsor three of its participants, the City of Grand Rapids, Genesee County and Kent County, to provide deeper access to Munetrix data. These communities will also get a discount on any upgrade packages licensed and offered by Munetrix to model and use for business analytics, benchmarking and planning.
