“Cities and local governments across the country will now be able to secure the RUBICONSmartCity technology platform through HGACBuy, which will dramatically help to accelerate the procurement timeline,” said Michael Allegretti, Chief Public Strategy Officer at Rubicon. “As more and more cities look to implement technology as a central part of a path towards greater sustainability and ending waste, Rubicon will continue to be at the forefront of setting the smart cities agenda, and we are thrilled to be a part of the HGACBuy consortium to help make that mission a reality for cities and municipalities.”

RUBICONSmartCity™️ has been rolled out in more than 30 cities across the United States, including Atlanta, GA; Columbus, GA; Fort Collins, CO; Montgomery, AL; Philadelphia, PA; Santa Fe, NM; Spokane, WA; Tyler, TX; and West Memphis, AR.
