GWorks, backed by BV Investment Partners and a provider of software services for small- and medium-sized cities and rural communities, has acquired Softline Data, a technology company offering utility billing, meter reading and public alert software, and Pubworks, a public works software services company focused on works and operations management and fleet maintenance.

The combined companies will operate under the GWorks brand as it serves 2,500 local government clients across 48 states. They will offer applications to address the functions of small local governments and public utility operations, including fund accounting, payroll, permitting, licensing, bill, work and operations management, among others.

“The addition of Softline Data and PubWorks strengthens our market position as a leader in software solutions for small local governments, accelerates our robust growth, and delivers value to our team members, clients, and clients’ customers—the public citizens,” says Joseph Heieck, CEO of GWorks.
