Here at FivePoint Payments, we live for innovation. We’re constantly looking for ways to provide better payment technology solutions for government agencies, and every year, we roll out new products and updates (like our recent FivePoint Accept). We can also fully appreciate govtech innovation beyond our walls (or home offices that we are in currently!). The more smart, technology-forward solutions government agencies use, the better the collective benefit for us all. The following highlights five innovative govtech companies that are disrupting the status quo.
