Enabling efficiency, collaboration, and transparency
We transform the drafting, amending, publishing and codification of legislation, regulations and other critical government documents from antiquated 19th and 20th century technology – pencils, paper, word processors and PDFs – into the machine-processable, cloud-ready and digitally efficient platform required by today’s government counsel and citizens.
Our products enable greater efficiency, collaboration and transparency in the creation of content at the core of government.
Solving legislative and regulatory drafting challenges around the world since 2002
Xcential’s co-founders, Grant Vergottini and Bradlee Chang, began work on modernizing the California Legislature’s drafting system in 2002. That was the beginning of Xcential – and LegisPro.
Starting in 2004, every legislative proposal moving through the California legislature has been drafted, amended and, if approved, published and codified on systems and software designed by Xcential.
Today – while continuing to support and help the California Legislative Counsel Bureau stay at the forefront of legislative technology, creating ever greater transparency for citizens and better work processes for drafters, representatives and staff – Xcential has brought its consulting expertise and LegisPro product line to projects at the the U.S. House, the U.S. Government Publishing Office, U.K. and Scottish Parliaments, the Nova Scotia Registry of Regulations and other governments around the world.
Working at the forefront of legislative XML standards and practices
We are committed to the implementation of open data standards – and, specifically, the promulgation of the international XML standard for legislative and regulatory documents, Akoma Ntoso (also known as LegalDocML), and its related U.S. standard, USLM (United States Legislative Markup). Xcential’s co-founder Grant Vergottini, who drives the company’s technical vision, has been an active participant in the creation of Akoma Ntoso and led our work on the creation of USLM for the U.S. House.
