In an effort to assist local governments around the United States combat the Coronavirus outbreak, GovPilot is making available – free of charge to any government agency – ten (10) out-of-the-box cloud-based modules designed to help local governments during this pandemic. 

These modules will facilitate Coronavirus testing registration, track expenses for FEMA reimbursement, and enable non-essential employees to work remotely, thereby facilitating the urgent need for social distancing while continuing to deliver government services. The software is intuitive, easy to use, and access to it has been designed to be implemented quickly within minutes of account activation.

“These are uncharted waters that require all of us to work together,” said GovPilot founder and CEO Michael Bonner. “We feel it is not just our responsibility – but our civic duty – to offer local governments at no charge the tools that can help them navigate this unprecedented crisis.”

GovPilot is providing easy to implement and use software applications to local governments that address their specific needs in the fight against Coronavirus. This includes an online testing registration module for local residents to schedule drive through testing. 

Others include the ability for local governments and their departments to digitally track COVID-19 related expenses, in order to quickly apply for reimbursement through FEMA’s Public Assistance Process. GovPilot is also offering GIS mapping for towns, cities, and counties who would like to create public-facing maps displaying permanent public health assets such as hospitals and temporary facilities such as testing sites, distribution areas, and containment zones. 

According to Axios and GovTech, amid the COVID-19 outbreak, local government officials are scrambling to get employees set up remotely – if workers can’t come into the office.
