Gongwer News Service today announced an exclusive and groundbreaking board and commission tracking system, along with several other upgrades that assist subscribers in monitoring Ohio's executive branch activities.

The services allow subscribers to track executive agency boards and commissions and receive alerts when those entities schedule meetings.

Further, new Gongwer pages for key boards and commissions include member information, contact details and long-term schedules, and will include future Gongwer articles regarding those entities.

From the State Board of Education to the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio to the State Controlling Board to the Casino Control Commission, and scores of other boards, this new service delivers resources unavailable anywhere else.

Built on Gongwer's leading tracking system, subscribers who track boards and commissions can choose to receive updates via email or text message and can choose to receive those messages in real time or at the end of the day.

The new system is integrated with Gongwer's Ohio Report and scheduling services, continuing efforts to make Gongwer products the most interactive and reliable service on the market.

With new service, the track buttons in the Ohio Report also now will show as "Tracked" if users already are tracking that bill, legislative committee or board/commission.

Subscribers are already able to track several other items, including legislation, legislators, committees, keywords, ORC sections and more. (Tracking page)

This year, Gongwer has released several new service enhancements, including alerts for news coverage categories, improved legislative status reports and a legislative staff contact service.

Additional service enhancements are in development and will be announced in the near future.
