City of Edmonds, Washington, Starts Long-term OpenGov Partnership with Government Budgeting Software

The City of Edmonds, WA, reached out to OpenGov looking to bolster its legacy ERP with improved budgeting and reporting. After connecting and learning about the budgeting suite from OpenGov, the leader in modern cloud software for our nation’s cities, they decided to forge a long-term partnership with the government tech leader.

The City, located 15 miles north of Seattle, was struggling with an intuitive budget process that needed to be re-learned every year. Additionally, staff was spending a ton of time creating a budget book with Excel sheets and PDFs and was looking for a streamlined solution that also better engaged residents. Leaders quickly saw how an end-to-end government budgeting software integrated with their legacy ERP could improve the City’s ability to plan for the future and increase accessibility for residents.

OpenGov Budgeting & Planning is an all-in-one robust software that will help City officials create an outcome-based budget, forecast personnel costs, develop comprehensive reports, and enhance public trust. Reviewing budget proposals and tracking performance will now be easier as multi-departmental teams collaborate to improve decision-making. The new process, along with the ability to share outcomes and insights easily, is sure to win praises of staff and discerning City Council members. City leaders anticipate OpenGov Budgeting & Planning will be a stepping stone to a long-term partnership with OpenGov for other software suites.
